2007 Yamaha wolverine 450 no spark

Recommended Posts

Hi all, new member from NY and I have a question.

Rode around fine, parked it and now no spark

I left it out over night and a chipmunk moved in.  My dogs were going crazy around the quad, I went to see what happened and saw a chipmunk in the quad.  Chased it away and it won’t start.

The air cleaner box was full of nuts, no nuts past the air cleaner.

In park, park light on, will not crank.  Put in neutral it cranks like normal but wont fire.  Pulled plug and cranked over – No Spark.

I traces a bunch of wires and cant find anything chewed.  What could be the problem?

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! Sounds like Alvin did some damage maybe... I would lean on a bad wire somewhere but would also check all fuses as well.  Can you start it with the handle brake depressed? Maybe your neutral switch is faulty.

Sorry for the late reply but I found out it was my dogs ripped the harness above the left rear tire.

Finished with heat shrink connectors and extra heat shrink tubing on top.  The heat shrink tubing also has glue in it to make it extra waterproof.

      Hi all,
      I recently acquired an old Bayou from a neighbor that I cleaned up a got running, then from nowhere a problem crops up where it refuses to start........ I pull the plug and it has no spark, pulled the plug cap off and laid the bare wire on the exhaust header and still nothing......once in a while though when I push the starter button but as I let off the button it might spark once. Now it did begin sparking normally just once and I plugged everything back in and it ran normally again until I turned the engine off. Next time I tried starting it we were back to no spark or the one spark deal.
      I have tested the stator wires at 140 ohm, the pick up at 130 ohm (I can't seem to find a reliable number for these values online), I bought a new ignition coil and ignition switch on chance those may have been the problem but were not, not sure where to look from here......... does the starter relay switch have anything to do with the ignition on these? I know these older Bayou's are magneto type ignitions and do not need battery power to operate but I wonder if there are safety switches involved I may not be aware of. Also, can someone point me to a good wiring schematic for the magneto 220's? Pre 95 I believe.
      thanks for any help!

      Bought a 2019 king quad 500 AXi few weeks ago.  What are peoples feelings on the break in time and fees a dealer charges.  Not sure if i should do the break in service myself. Thanks

      Just picked up my new quad from dealership. Drove it onto truck felt for brush guard to touch front of bed. There isn't one.  Asked dealer. Says they don't come with one have to order it. They looked it up not available for at least 30 to 90 days. Winch mounting plate either. Been riding suzuki's since 1973. So i guess it will have to sit in garage till accessories are available. This is my fourth Suzuki ATV they all came with brush guards. Can't even imagine the damage you could get without it.

      I have a problem here, she starts and only runs for about a minute on her own fuel. her idle is high then boggs down. Then she seems to have
      a light backfire then dies. Any ideas what to look for are appreciated. Ive already gone through the carbs.
