Hi All,

Need some help from fellow boss hoss riders.

I have my 1995, Boss hoss, clutch motorcycle that is not starting up. The motorcycle has been resting for almost 2 months.

Battery fully charged, Spark plugs checked & cannot get any spark through.

Any advice ?

Thanks

Could be a bad coil or module ?

Detrols,

If your ignition control module is the culprit,
it is not difficult to replace.

AutoZone's part number is DR100

I am sure you can cross-reference its number.

If you search for it at another parts store,
look for it from a 1982 Chevrolet Pickup C10
5.7 Liter 2wd

That is what Monte told me to look under whenever
I look for generic parts for the BH

As Jack said, it could the coil..........

Is the kill button in the run position ??? IF your saying you get
nothing, do the lights come on??? Maybe a bad ground (earth)
at the batt. or where it bolts to the frame??? I have more ideas
after you check these out.

I once owned a 2001 SB and left the kill switch to kill, like Paul H. said and the bike never started, starter spins but no spark. Dumber things have happened with me.

Good luck Bob T.

electronic ignition module can stop without any warning and a relatively easy fix, a standard ACDelco electronic ignition module when buying one is IMO the best, you can pay more for aftermarket parts but in this there is no difference in performance our application, the only thing the racing modules do is relieve you of some of your excess money.

I agree with these guys, had mine crap out on the '98.

I've also had the ol'kill switch problem as well - so double check all of your switches.

I'd like to see the answers to Paul's questions as well - those would help diagnose.

And, lastly, it is a clutch bike - is there a neutral safety switch or anything like that on those bikes?

Distributor rebuild kit.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for replying late but had some time to look at the Boss. After checking all the below comments & diagnose the electric circuit & distributor, it resulted that the top part - inlet of the distributor, 12v is going in, but none going out.
The internals of the distributor are rusted off, cleaned the contact & looking to purchase a rebuilt kit.
I still have the original GM black distributor, will the below kit suit to my plan in rebuilding the distributor.

Thanks

Detrols,

Looks like moisture has been enjoying itself in there.
When you install the Ignition Module, make sure that
you apply the Dielectric grease under the module.
Keep us posted.
