My bike has been running ok, just a little hard to start in the morning. Would start and then die. If I turned the choke on and left it that way for a few minutes it would warm up enough to drop the choke.

Today I was out running some errands and the bike started to act funny. It would buck a bit in gear and then die. The idle was all over the place. I was able to get it started again but the same thing would happen a mile or so down the road. After a few times like this it died completely and would not start again. It seems like it wants to turn over but I pulled out the spark plugs to see if they were firing but they weren't. They get no spark at all. Any one have any suggestions?

You did ground the plug when you checked, right?

Well actually my buddy did it and he set the plug against/near the frame and looked for a spark to jump. Think I can talk you into walking up the street to take a look? I'll buy the beer!

I don't live there, but I will be at the garage for a short time today 6-7 most likely.

Just heard this the other day:

If it's a brand new bike and you only go for short rides on it, the battery might not be charging fully. If the fan is on (while sitting in the heat in traffic), it'll drain your half-charged battery- voila, hard starting bike.

Tonya,
Thanks but it's a 14 year old Ninja that sat for a few years. Looks like it's an electric problem with the igniter according to my manual.

Well sort of.......turns out it is the starter relay and I ran down the battery tring to start it so there was not enough juice to start it. Sent off for a new relay and hope that works.
