Even though you have voltage coming to and from the cdi does not conform it’s working.  

Two ways to see if it’s the cdi. 1 is find a used on from another bike same type and swap it and see if that fixed it. 2 is try to dry it out and see if that works.  Most cdi units go bad due to moisture.  Try to put it in the oven for 10 min on 250 deg.  Let it cool down and give it a shot.  If the spark works then obviously a cdi replacement is needed. The heating it up is only a temp fix as it will loose spark again. 

This worked for me but I had to replace the cdi bc it def failed again after a day or two due to moisture re entering the cdi. 

As far as testing the stator and regulator, ignition coil are all within spec with an ohm meter ?

Yes everything else checks out with the ohm meter only thing I haven't tried was my kill switch could be screwed and some one Also said the two black wires on the break lever sometimes go bad. Was told to cut them and ground them out is this true

" my stator and pick up coil is up to spec brand new" If you bought an import cheapie that might be the problem? other than that I would do as Mr. Angerano suggested.

The two black wires on the brake lever ? A parking brake that has to be pulled in for the bike to start? I don’t think a bike of that age would have that. But double check. Also the kill switch. Simple test is to look for the two wires that kill the bike. Most are black with a white stripe and all black.  You have to put a continuity tester on the two wires at the switch and see if it rings when you hit the kill switch.  In order to do this properly you have to have the manual to see exactly what wires to test  

Have you tried what i said with the cdi ?

      Hello Folks....new to the forum.  I have two Warriors (87 and 92), and an 89 Big Bear.  Looking for some help with engine issues on the warrior, and my 89 Big bear backfired and died. Got spark, got gas, seems to have compression, (but haven't tested it yet...next). She rolls over good, maybe too good...seems soft. Have spark and enough compression to blow gas mist out the plug hole when cranking. Suggestions, Been running great since we got it.

      I have a 99 250 Quadrunner. Currently has no spark. It would run for 5 minutes, then shut off. After it cooled down about 20-30 minutes, it would start again. I ordered a new stator and found the old one was damaged (copper windings broken)  I installed the new stator, filled with oil and now it has no spark. Any assistance would be helpful

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.

      I’m just wondering what year bike i got? it seems the vin has been rubbed off i got it from a auction here in Australia engine starts but seems has a dirty carb wont idle well
      and also has a problem I put it in gear and makes a grinding noise but does not move it the neutral light goes out but then when I change gear it grinds more in the higher gears as well I’m guessing the differential is stuffed so wanting to buy new part for it will start the pull down next week

      this is the first bike I have worked on used to dealing with cars

      I'm having a problem getting a CDI unit that works. The parts list calls for a  4XE-85540-00-00 CDI unit. The one currently on the ATV works but there seems to be a problem with the spark advance curve. It will idle fine an rev. to about 1.5K then  starts bogging down sputtering, popping and basically running poorly. If you can get it above 2200 RPM it runs better. I have ordered and returned about 5 replacement modules that will not work at all. The unit currently on the bike has no part numbers or identification other than a Mitisibuchi logo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar problems with replacement CDI's and if so what is the fix? So far I have not found a replacement CDI that will supply an pulse to the Ignition coil.

      Hello 
      I have a 1994 Kawi Bayou 400 which had been running well until it sat for about a month. I left the carb dry while it was park and the temp had dropped below 0C in this time. Pulled it out last night to go for a ride and it fired up just like it should but noticed when I started to head down the road I could hold it to the bar and it didn't seem to accelerate. Lower gears weren't as noticeable but 4th and 5th it just seemed to have no acceleration and half or full throttle  made no difference. if I tried to go into 5th gear with any throttle it would stall. I turned around and just poked home very slow and it seemed to stay running but this was between 15 and 20 km/h max. 
      I have taken the carb apart and it appears to be clean and nothing stood out on inspection to have dirt or ice. Is there something I should dig more into? 
      I have checked the plug and it appears to be sooty with easily rubbed off carbon. I plan to get a new plug today and test. 
      compression with the throttle wide open is 175 psi. 
      I have opened the drain plug in the exhaust thinking there could be a mouse in the exhaust or something but no difference. 
      I do find the engine is tickity compared to my 2000 Honda but I am not sure if this is just me looking for issues or if it has always been this way. 
      If anyone has any insight I would appreciate it.
      In the last 6 months I have done new oil and filter ( mystik synthetic) 
      new Peak RPM CDI 
      I have noticed the fan comes on more often with the new CDI, could this be a program thing?
       
      Mike
