ttr600 ignition pick up
i have no spark on my 99 yamaha ttr600 belgarda..
ive checked everything..i have no power coming from the ignition pick up..when i kick over the bike all lights,horn,neutral light etc work..but no spark
i only have power coming from the red/white wire from the cdi..
from the generator i have power coming from all 3 white wires..
there is nothing coming from the 2 wires from the ignition pick up so feel this is my problem...
what pick up from another bike would fit my ttr?

Hey there.

Make SURE that it's the pickup coil. Test it with a multimeter, check for resistance, and if it meets the manual's specifications.
I'm not sure if the pickup coil has to give any power. Should it?

How do you test the power, etc.? Do you disconnect everything? Can you post some photos?

Make sure all connections in the wiring loom are connected properly.

Have you changed anything, modified? When and after what actions has it lost the spark?

It may be a very simple problem. Like mine was :oops2:

Don't rush into actions. bier

pick up
ive tried everything else..
all wiring is fine..as is all connections..
i would suspect there should be power coming from he pick up to the cdi unit..
i do have a 2005 ttr600re..if i get the chance i will take the pick up out of it and try it on the belgarda..
i havent managed to find a pick up for it anywere yet..
it suddenly just stopped sparking..no warning..

Not 100% on this or your bike but i was under the impression the pickup triggers the CDI to fire?

mezo im not sure myself to be honest but what i will do is start my 05 ttr600 and check is there power coming from the pick up

Im guessing its your CDI at fault here, or if the pick up is faulty then it wont be triggering the CDi to fire (if thats how it works) & im pretty certain it does.

You can try cleaning the pick up coil, if there's crap stuck on it wont be sending the signal to fire the CDI, try that first (cheapest).

Test the coil resistance (i don't know what it should be) but if its within spec that rules out any broken wires & duff windings, then it would lean toward a faulty CDI.

another ttr600 no sparker
followed the saga with interest now have the same problem with 2001 kicker. Was there a solution to the no spark. is there a reading to be had from the pick up sensor. If i check the resistance of the sensor out of the motor there is a slight drop when a metel object is passed across the magent. Does this drop trigure the cdi to fire the coil?

hi to be honest as I already had a ttr600re I swapped over the suspension from the ttr600 belgarda and sold it on..think the guy I sold it too said it was the cdi unti that had packed up

Just reading this thread with interest as I have the same problem with a 1998 Belgarda model. Everything points to the cdi unit on my bike but not sure how to test the sensor. I was told that the sensor should have a resistance of about 80 ohms, mine is 230 ohms? Can anyone help by putting a meter across the two signal wires coming from the mag, there is a twin connector under the seat with a blue/yellow and a green/white wire going into a black and green/white. I'm looking for a reading across the first two wires if anyone would be so good.

If your in the uk I've used West Country windings for quite a while now,find the resistance values or quite often they can tell you,stick multimeter on ohms and check the value on your pulse coil..if its wrong chuck it in a Jiffy bag for a trip to Essex,or drop it there if your close enough.they usualy do in a week,very good service..

Before writing it off as the cdi, disconnect all your electrical connectors, give em a blow out in case there is any moisture in them, put a little vaseline in the connectors, check none of the earths are corroded or dirty, clean where the coil bolts to the frame, screw the plug cap into the cable to make sure its tight, whack a new plug in and see what happens.
It doesnt take much to stop these things working electrically, could save a cdi that might not be needed.
Best of luck finding the root of the prob, electrical gremlins can be a nightmare!
