    Engine will not start

    I have a 97 Suzuki Marauder vz800. I have no spark. I have replaced both ignition coils, the plug wire, the boots and the plug. Either coil has a solid black wire going to it and a black wire with a stripe. I put 1 lead from the multimeter on the solid black wire the other attached to the engine for ground and got 10.2 volts, and that's just with the ignition key on not during a start. Does this mean My IC ignitor is bad or would there be something else?

    why did you start another thread on the same problem? did you check the fuel pump? see if the plugs are wet and see if they spark? your bike has a computer that controls spark. with that low of voltage in the battery the voltage drops enough that the computer shuts off. i ran into this with my bike. but please cont your original thread.
