Your ignition coil should be grounded by one of two ways.

(1) It should have two wires going to the coil. One is a ground and one is a positive.

(2) If there is only one wire(positive) going to the coil, then, the coil grounds by bolting to the frame.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

you are correct helmut..some coils have two wires going to them..one goes to the coil..other goes through the coil bolt hole to the frame, and on some bikes..they have both wires going straight to the coil :-)

Ok...This thing is back to being possessed...

I got this thing running PERFECTLY and gave it to my 10 year old nephew for his birthday a few months ago...Dont know who was more excited to have it...him or his dad. They rode the heck out of it in their yard and street...ran and started perfect everytime. 1 pull and it was purring... Well here is the kicker...

My brother brings his atvs in every year to a shop that goes through them ..basically lubes...and repairs any trivial thing that needs attention. HE BROUGHT THIS HONDA 90 TO THEM AND ASKED IF THEY COULD FINE TUNE THE CARB...AS THE PLUG WAS A BIT DARK AFTER RUNNING IT FOR A FEW HOURS.

THEY (the shop) drove it off the trailer....THEY drove it around their lot...THEY drove it around their offroad course...then they ordered a new carb kit. That was 2 months ago.. Somehow they did something and guess what... IT NO LONGER HAS SPARK!

I have told my brother it is their problem as he handed them a running machine.... and they need to undue whatever they messed up.

ANY THOUGHTS?? AM I BEING UNREASONABLE?

Yeah, it sounds reasonable for them to fix it, since they were working on it. I would try to get them to fix it, but at the very least, I would try to get them to supply the labor.

I agree...if a part went kafloeey...I could see paying for that.... but they should at least troubleshoot it and make it run....still sucks...as I put a lot of time, money , and effort into this 90 for the kid.... and now it sits in a shop.... not even being worked on....and my brother....afraid to confront them....
