1. Make sure the engine has the correct spark plugs and they’re gapped correctly. This might seem silly, but seemingly big problems are sometimes caused by the simplest thing.
2. Check the spark plug wire condition.
3. Disconnect the main electrical connector coming out of the engine, and then check for spark again. This unhooks the kill switch, ATV ignition switch and wiring for those switches. If the spark improves, the problem is within wiring from one of those switches or a switch itself is to blame. Now you’ll need to disconnect each switch (one at a time) to trace it to the failed part.
4. Test the stator resistance. You can get the specs from a dealer or try a search online.
Dealers don’t accept returns on electrical parts, so be sure the part you order is to blame, you could be stuck with a brand new, expensive ignition part and still dont have spark. Think of your friends and riding partners who have the same or similar quad, you might be able to borrow parts from their machines to diagnose the problem.
