Going through a puddle ? That’s odd because most of the electrical components are higher up into the frame.  Something like that could be tricky to isolate.  If water is getting inside of a plug, water going near the stator etc but that’s the only parts that are down low.  The cdi could be gettin damp and causing that to happen but it could be anything!  You would have to really look at the bike for any exposed wiring or open areas like around the kill switch etc. 

I would rate this on a scale of 1 to 10 a 7 as far as being risky. If the price is right then yes it would be worth the effort. But if your paying a lot of money walk away. That’s my take.

I agree, it could be risky or an easy fix. I agree with @Frank Angerano if the price is right, get it. Offer a price thinking worse case scenario for replacement parts. 

Topic moved to suzuki atv forum and added more info to topic title.

      So where to start my son's LT80 stop running a couple months ago. Naturally I assumed I had a carburetor issues or the peacock valve. After replacing those two items and ensuring I had a spark I started doing my homework thus finding this page. After all the post I have read the next natural thing would be compression I did a compression test today and it was only 60 after spraying WD-40 in it so off comes the cylinder head and The Jug to my surprise the cylinder walls and all the gaskets are pristine so I am totally stumped no idea why I would not have compression when everything looks brand new even the Rings look great any help would be appreciated thanks in advance

      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

      Both the red wire and the blue have power with out the start button being pushed.  Which one should have power?  When I hooked up a positive and a negative to the starter relay it started.

      I need a repair manual for a 2004 and a 2005 sportsman 90 and I found a 2006 manual for cheap money. Is it worth getting and will it cover everything for the 04 and 05
