one spark after ignition button released

The year  should be  coded in the VIN number.  Here  is  a  site  explaining   VIN  coding on ATVs.


As  far  as  chasing  down    a  fault,  Start  at  the  starter  circuit .. Since  you  get  a spark  when  you release  the  start button , it indicates to  me  there  is  no current  to  the  ignition while  the  starter  is activated , but there  is  when  it  is released. I would  strongly  suspect  the  starter relay  or  the  wire  from  it  that  supplies  ignition  current  when it  is  activated.

      New member here,
      I have searched here and other places and have not found an answer to my problem.   As the title says I have a 2014 420 Rancher that recently started having an issue were the revs before the clutch engages.  
      I have checked the oil level (per the service manual) and replace the Valvoline ATV 10w40(less than 5 hours) with 10W30 GN4 for good measure. I have used the "pin" method to pull a DTC.  I shows a 8-1 which is a TPS error.  This makes some sense, as if the computer doesn't read throttle position correctly, it could have this symptom. I have checked the source voltage, and tested the TPS off the quad with a Fluke and a power supply at 5v.  It is smooth and does not seem to be a bad sensor. I am confused by the DTC, because the PS light blinks the code, not the check engine light.  However, there are no PS codes of that value.   This condition appeared after a couple days of driving in the cold (~32°) and driving though some water/bogs.   
      A couple questions.  First has anyone seen this issue, and do you have any suggestions? I have followed the troubleshoot right up to the point of replacing the ECU, which I don't seem to have one on the shelf :)
      Second, anyone used a OBDII reader with an a 4pin adapter to pull codes?  If so, what system do you use?
      Beyond the rev issue, the quad runs and starts perfectly and when it decides, the clutch grabs tight (no slipping)

      Hello everyone. I have a 2015 Massimo 500 Gator side by side EFI  I have no fire going to injector, before problem started I replaced injector at that time if I turned engine over the injector would spray fuel, it will not now. On this vehicle I have replaced coil, coil wire, fuel pump spark plug and relay checked fuses and did a visual inspection of wiring finding no problems. 
      Will appreciate any help or tips in locating problem
      Have a Great Day

      Before I go tearing this harness completely apart, I have tested stator, pickup coil, cdi, and have power to coil, I’m sure the coil is shot as it’s out of spec, but, I have an issue(or I think) where I’m getting a circuit with an ohm load checking from coil power to coil ground wire.  Am I supposed to have a circuit between the two wires?
