IGNITION HT COILS | CHECK, REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
WHEELS, BRAKES AND TIRES
- Remove the fuel tank (see Chapter 3). The coils are bolted to the frame cross-member behind the cylinder head. Check the coils visually for loose or damaged terminals, cracks and other damage.
- Disconnect the battery negative (-ve) lead (see Chapter 8).
- Disconnect the primary circuit wiring connectors from the coil being tested, noting which fits where, and pull the relevant spark plug caps off the plugs (see illustration and 2.2).
- To check the condition of the primary windings, set the meter to the ohms x 1 scale. Connect one meter probe to one primary circuit terminal and the other probe to the other terminal and measure the resistance (see illustration). The reading should be consistent with the value given in the Specifications at the beginning of the Chapter.
- To check the condition of the secondary windings, set the meter to the K-ohm scale. Connect one meter probe to one spark plug cap and the other probe to the other cap and measure the resistance (see illustration).
If the reading obtained is not within the range shown in the Specifications, unscrew the caps from the ends of the HT leads and repeat the measurement.
If the reading is now as specified, then the cap(s) could be faulty. To test a cap, measure the resistance between the lead socket and the plug socket which should be around 5 k-ohms. If the caps are good, it is likely that the coil is defective, though it could only be the lead.
Unfortunately the coil is supplied with an integral lead, so even if the coil itself is good, a new one will have to be fitted.
BRAKE SYSTEM-BLEEDING AND FLUID CHANGE.
WARNING! Use care when working with brake fluid as it can injure your eyes and it will damage painted surfaces and plastic parts.
- Bleeding the brakes is simply the process of removing all the air bubbles from the brake fluid reservoirs, the hoses and the brake calipers. Bleeding is necessary whenever a brake system hydraulic connection is loosened, when a component or hose is renewed, or when a master cylinder or caliper is overhauled.
Leaks in the system may also allow air to enter, but leaking brake fluid will reveal their presence and warn you of the need for repair.
- To bleed the brakes, you will need some new DOT 4 brake fluid, a length of clear vinyl or plastic tubing, a small container partially filled with clean brake fluid, some rags and a ring spanner to fit the brake caliper bleed valves.
- Cover the fuel tank, fairing panels (GSX600/750F models), front mudguard, seat cowling and other painted components as required to prevent damage in the event that brake fluid is spilled.
- Remove the reservoir cover or cap, diaphragm plate and diaphragm (see Daily (pre-ride) checks) and slowly pump the brake lever or pedal a few times, until no air bubbles can be seen floating up from the holes in the bottom of the reservoir.
Doing this bleeds the air from the master cylinder end of the line. Loosely refit the reservoir cover.
