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 like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      Hey y’all I got a kfx 400, rebuilt the carb put bigger inlets on it, adjusted the fuel mixture screw 2.5 turns out and cleaned the fuel petcock. It starts up not so great, it takes full throttle with full choke and cranks for about 10-20 seconds before it fires and while “ideling” it surges very bad and I’ve messed with the idle set and it changes nothing, if you ride it casually it runs fine but as soon as you get on it for more than 4 seconds it stumbles and falls flat on its face and you have to wait for the carb to fill back up with fuel, I’ve checked everything and nothing is blocking fuel, I even put a bigger hose to see if that made a difference. Thanks for reading hopping to hear someone has some advice.

      Fuel issue. Fuel runs through carb flooding  cylinder when sitting. Does the float suppose to shut the fuel off when sitting ?

      Why does the 2001 grizzly not have com bearings or something to protect the head.
