new project just picked up.
2000 sportsman 500
absolutely nothing happens when I turn the key. there is no start button on the left handle bar so im thinking it turns on with the key.
I checked all wires on the CDI and reconnected some wires.
jumped the starter and got good compression. I also bridged the starter solenoid and engine turned.
New ignition switch/key
new spark plug
what else should i check? how do i know is the cdi that needs replacement over the coil, or other things? any way to test that?
are there any wires that absolutely need to be plugged in for the atv to start? there are some wires e.g. 12v outlet wires, ground for the winch etc...
i really dont want to just start buying up parts and replace them..
any help would be appreciated it. thanks.
