So for the last few days ive been working on the 250, plugs, cleaned oiled the air filter and changed the oil. I also installed a koso xrsr and put new bars on it. My problem is after I finished all this up I went to start it and it only fires on one cyl. If I pull the clutch side plug nothing happens (its not firing on that cyl) if I switch the coil it still wont fire or spark on that side so I know its not the coil or wire. Any ideas? When I took the bars off I got carried away and had the choke and throttle cables flew out, I put them back in however im not 100% if its right. The choke dosent seem to do anything if I open or close it. Also does anyone know if their are and wires that go up to the stock gauge cluster thatt I couldve messed up to cause this? Im very confused as to why its only the one side with good coil and new plugs

No they dont make a plug in play kit for the xrsr sadly. I have two black wires with silver dots and two green wires with silver dots that are identical to what goes to the coils that went to the stock gauge plug but now their not hooked to anything... Ill look into ic ignighter though as well. Thanks

I don't know what the xrsr kit is, I've been out of the game for a while now.

But if the coil on the suspect plug is getting hot and the plug is not firing you have a ground issue or a short. I would suggest looking for an exposed wire.

The ignition control modual is behind the seat . You should have a black wire and a green wire on one coil and a black wire and red wire going to the other one. There is an engine ground on the right side . Most ground wires are back/ yellow

I have a red and green on one and red and black on the side thats not sparking. Im wondering if a ground went up to the tach or something and I messed it up when I cut the harness for the gauge... Time to investigate..

Should be the same, there has been no changes mechanically, and there has been no recalls or changes to the electrical as far as I know!

Yes, but I wasnt able to fix the existing harness. I cut up the hole thing never.found anything so I just got a used harness off ebay for like 50 & used it. And a harness from an 08 will work on an 2011 their just a connector with 3 yellow wires and the connector is diffrent so I had to splice the old connector in and you have to route it on the other side but it does work just took some time. The 08 was just cheaper and easier to find.
