Will the Starter turn over? Has it been sitting for a while? Has it been in an accident or in deep water? Give us a little more background.
Thanks.

Make sure you didn't bugger up the plug wire. The rincon plug wire is easy to break when removing it.

This may be a long shot, but the bike may have quit for another reason...and now the plugwire is buggered up. The electrics on the rincon are pretty durable...so are the coils. If the plug wire is good you will need to go backwards in the system and check the coil.

Mike, There was another guy just recently who had the exact same symptoms. He finally found that a mouse or squirrel had chewed up some wiring. Once he fixed that, all was well. The fact that you are not getting a spark narrows down the problem and eliminates other stuff, including fuel problems. Look closely at the wiring to/from your ignition coil. Also, you might try replacing your spark plug. Plugs do fail suddenly! It's always a good idea to keep an extra plug with your machine anyway. Does your display show any error codes? If not, you probably have a chewed wire, or bad connection. I trust that your battery is good and the starter is turning over well. Keep us posted. Kent

Mike, When you say, "It quits firing," do you mean that you stop losing spark, or that the engine stops running?
If the plug is sparking when it is removed from the cylinder head, then one would assume that it is still sparking when it is installed in the cylinder head. Thus, I'm assuming that when you say, "it quits firing", you mean that the engine stops running. If that is the case, then you should take a look at your carbureator.

One member of the forum (RinconFun), was having similar issues on his Rincon and was about ready to push his Rincon over a cliff. But, as a last resort, he decided to replace his carbureator, and bingo... replacing his carb did the trick. If you don't ride your machine a lot, the gas can go bad (turn to varnish) and can really goof up the works in your carbureator. If that is the case, you really need to disassemble, clean, and rebuild the carbureator, as just running solvents through it (via your gas) won't do it. Also, if you have the same gas in your tank for any more than a month or so, you should put a gas preservative called StaBil in the gas. If you have older gas in your tank now, get it out as StaBil (at this point) won't turn it back into good gas. Then, take the time to remove and clean out your carb before you restart your machine.

If you are still having problems after that, let us know, but, be as specific as possible. Telling us that 'it won't fire' doesn't really tell us if you aren't getting any spark, if the engine is stalling, etc. Thanks,
Kent

First off....in time or not, if you are crnking it over and giving it gas you should see some on the plug and smell it at the exhaust.

The bike may have jumped time if the cam chain is loose and the chain jumped a tooth on the sprocket. But they will run this way only they will run crappy. If the timing chain broke. Your valves would not be opening and you would not see gas.

If plug is firing and you think it jumped time, pull the seat off and remove the intake side valve cover. It easy to get to. Turn bike over with the starter or rope and see if intake valves are moving. If not you have internal engine issues, most likely a broken cam chain.
