2011 Grizzly 700 FI Wont Fire

Recommended Posts

My Grizzly started dying in the middle of riding it.  Most of the time it was as I was decelerating or idling.  It did this for a while and I thought it was just bad fuel.  I had siphoned out most of the tank and put fresh fuel in it thinking this would fix it.  However, after riding it some with the fresh fuel it was still doing it.  Last night it died and I couldn't get it restarted.  The battery is 8 years old so I thought maybe this was not keeping enough charge so I put a brand new battery on it.  Still nothing.  I pulled the spark plug to find I had zero spark.  Does anyone have the service manual that walks you through all the steps you are to take when you aren't getting spark?  I was just going to go back to the coil next and keep tracing my way back.  I'm not sure what resistance should be at the coil nor exactly how to test it.  Also not sure how to test the plug to make sure that is good.  

 

Any help you guys could lend would be greatly appreciated.

Of all the things, it turned out to be a faulty spark plug.  I have been riding ATV's and dirt bikes for 30 years and in all that time I have never had a spark plug go bad.  This Grizzly had 60 hours on it when the plug went bag - I have to assume it was just a quality defect in the manufacturing of the plug.  Very random in my opinion.

You know for the first time I had the same thing happen this past weekend.   EFI Rancher 420 started doing the same thing.  

In thought for sure it was a fuel delivery problem.  Pulled the plug after I barley got the bike back to my truck.  Turns out no spark.  I took a shot and popped a new plug in and bang! Like new the bike ran great.  Strange but simple fix thankfully.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      New user and first time quad owner. I recently got a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 and am really excited to start working on it! I work in IT for a living and am an experienced mechanic, so at least I am not starting at 0 haha.  Looking forward to hanging out and getting to know everybody!

      So we have a grizzly 450 and it has a few issues. It's the main work quad now that my brother's Kodiak has started burning oil from wear. (It's got probably 4000-5000 miles on it)
      One issue with the grizzly is the 4 wheel drive doesn't kick out. We haven't really investigated into it but long story short the 4 wheel drive is permanently engaged. Before it just kicked in and out sporadically, now it just stays in 4 wheel drive permanently. The issue this brings is the quad burns through gas like mad, it goes through a whole tank in a week.
      It also needs a tube in the tire, but that's a lot easier to solve.
