    Aprilia sportcity 125 2011 - no spark

    Hi guys, mi first post on this forum, very exciting.

    First of all thank you!

    right so secon sportcity i own i had a 2008 model, bought a 2011 model. A bit of gamble as i paid literally little but engine could not check engine was working as battery flat and was sitting for long.

    Main issue at the minute I cannot get spark, I have my other sportcity to check if parts are workign so this is of great help. Where I am at the minute:

    1 replaced battery
    2 engine spins freely
    3 new spark
    4 i have taken working coil from other sportcity and nothing
    5 coil fitted to other sportcity works
    5 all fuses fines

    where next:

    6 kill switch? would engine still be able to spin if kills switch is on, and therefore not getting spark?
    7 stator magneto etc as below?

    any help would be massively appreciated as I literally do not know where to look.

    THANK YOU!

    you have a crank but no spark situation
    There are multiple causes but often the bike is OK but the key code antenna is not, so when the antenna cant read the code from your key you will get that problem. So first try starting it with a nother key, then if it dosnt work check and test the antenna.
    Also sometimes the killswitch or the sidestand killswitch will produce the same issue (they get stuck in off position) unplugging them will let you figure out fast if they are the problem.

    Best of luck searching for the problem.

    Yes the 125cc engines have a keycode and a key antenna, its located around the ignition key lock (you will have to remove the knee plastic to access it). Often the antenna wil disconnect itself from vibrations or get damaged during service intervals if you are not avare of it and pull it.
    Yes if its a factory mounted sidestand it has a kill switch on it.
