Magna no spark

I have a 2000 vf750 magna with intermittent spark on front right cylinder no the plug. Wires have close to same resistance. One box per front cylinders. Does anyone have any idea what I can look for.

Loose wires to the coil, cracked wire on the spark plug wire. Intermittent spark in my experience is a bad connection somewhere in the wiring.

if I remember correctly there are 2 coils on that bike, 1 coil=2 spark plugs check the other 3 if they spark good not the coil, or anything before coil. would have to be plug wire or boot or even spark plug.


and counting

Replaced wires and coil on front. No fix. I read that the drain screws on the bowls must point towards center of the bike.(backwards) or a lean condition will occur.( mine are out) Runs good on choke. With no choke I get a big backfire in the pipe every couple strokes.

the carbs wont affect spark, get the spark fixed before jumping to something else. I assume that you did in fact check for spark at the plug and confirmed it does not have spark.
