    • There are only a couple of years that fit the 86. They used the same CDI for the last 3 wheelers and first gen 4 wheelers. They are very rare indeed. 
    • I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.
    • That sucks @mikeexplorer but please let us know when you plan on hitting a trail maybe if its close enough i will join if that's ok ?
    • Mine lost spark until I charged the battery. I figured out that the voltage regulator/rectifier was bad by using a multimeter. I tested voltage from the stator at the connector the regulator plugs into, white wire to blue wire. You should see at least 12 volts AC. It should go up higher than that when you rev the engine (mine goes up to 30 VAC). If that's there, you have a good stator. Then test the regulator/rectifier, which would probably be best tested by connecting your multimeter to the battery with the engine not running, and note the voltage. Start the engine and rev it up. The voltage should go up. If it doesn't, you need a new regulator. The inline fuse is part of this circuit, too, but nothing works if it's blown. For you electronics nerds like me, I test the regulator output at the battery because the raw feed from it while disconnected from the battery can confuse some multimeters because it's pulsed DC, not constant DC.    
    • Its a work weekend for me ☹️
