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 ?

      I have a Kawasaki Bayou 220 KLF220A and I cannot get it to start using the starter button. I have replaced the starter solenoid and the starter relay. I have followed the wiring diagram in the repair manual and it looks like the switch is working well, the neutral and reverse relay have power running through them and appear tp be working correctly. However, I can not find a wire runnng the the starter button that has power on it. Anybody have any idea what the break down is?

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      Hello, 
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Bear Tracker in the shop for repair. I have the service manual but it doesn't have all the information I need to fix the problem. I need to know the voltage output of the stator charge coil and pulse or trigger coil at cranking speed. The wiring diagram color code doesn't seem to match and that is compounded by the fact that the wiring harness CDI connector is missing so I have 7 wires that need to be connected to the CDI. I can not find a circuit diagram of the CDI which tells me where the pulse/trigger coil connects or the charge coil connects. The other 3 wires (black ground, orange ignition coil, and r/b ignition kill sw) also need to be connected. The CDI has a single 8 pin connector and has a P/N 4XE-00 F8T19871 -1122 number on it and I believe it to be OEM. However I think the Stator and pulse coil are aftermarket items. I have resistance tested everything and it all seems to be in spec. but I don't want to miss wire anything and cause damage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hey everyone, I've been scratching my head over this for most of the day.  I bought a couple of Bayou 220's, got them running (they've both been sitting), and started tweaking and fixing small things.  One of them is mostly done, the other had an aftermarket carb on it and I've been trying to sort that out.
       
      Anyway, while adjusting the carb it died a few times, I restarted and moved on until it died and wouldn't restart.  I figured maybe I'd flooded it or something - after further attempts I realized I had no spark.  Since I have two identical machines I have many parts at my disposal.  I've swapped the CDI, spark plug and coil with no luck.  I have good resistance readings from the stator and pick up (135 and 110 respectively),  I don't have a peak voltage meter but I measure around 53VAC on the stator when cranking.  I have a 4 wire stator, not an alternator like the newer ones.  Grounds look good, I've checked the kill switch by verifying that it and the ignition switch grounds the black/yellow wire to the CDI.  I can turn the engine slowly and see the pickup short the meter as well, seems normal right?  So far everything I've checked looks the same on both machines.  I've got the service manual and wiring diagrams.  Do these readings make any sense?  I'm obviously missing something but I'm stumped.  thanks!
