Ok well maybe it truly is your cdi. Here  my crazy trick in mentioned earlier It works! If your cdi is damp inside this truck will fix it temporarily but allows you to see if this is the problem.   I did it before and it worked. Don’t laugh.  Do exactly what is shown here then go install it and give it a shot.

Yes I have I don't have them touching and I ordered a new one just waiting for it to get here should be here by Saturday. I will deffeinetly give it a try. I also got a new coil bc when I tested that I didn't get any readings. I haven't purchased a new cdi yet bc they are 150 used on eBay and been looking to see if I can pick one up and just rewire it kind of thing

The re wire will not work.  Don’t waste your money. If your not getting a reading on the ignition coil wouldn’t you think that’s the problem ?

Yea I figured the coil, but I also figured the cdi because the test in the manual for the cdi I didn't get anything when I tested it

I’m not sure what test you performed on the cdi because I’ve never seen one testable so that’s kinda throwing me off a bit.  

But the coil yes you can test that.

Isn't there a test in the manual to run on the cdi? I could be mistaking . But any how thank you for the backing trick it deffeinetly worked. And I just bought a cheap coil off the internet for a few dollars. I been busy and haven't been able to get to the bike in a few days do today I gave the cdi a good bake at 305° for 15 min. Put it on and no spark So I put the coil on and she fired up.

So I want to say thank you for the help. And have a couple more questions. I ordered a key switch off line and for some reason. When it's in the off position it's on and when it's in the on position off. An the radiator fan is not kicking on so I'm guess no part of the cooling system is working any ideas. I haven't really looked at it a hole lot. Othe them do say all the wires are ok. And there two wires a blue and a brown wire in the front and by the motor and idea what they hook up to. Everything is hiked up there is nothing for them. I was thinking battery but don't see a spot for a battery. Again thank you for all your help

So you got spark!! That’s great!!!! The cooling system fan will only work when the engine temp gets to its set point.  On the right side of the bike the radiator bottom should have a sensor on it. There should be two wires connected to it.   Take them two wires off of the sensor.  When the engine is running use a jumper wire and jump the two wires. That fan should come on, if so that’s good news as far as the fan working and the power going to it.  The only thing next is to see if the sensor is working. My guess is it’s working fine.  My bike took a while to heat up and come on.  If in doubt swap it out for a new one. I will get back to you with the wire colors for that fan and the wires your talking about that are loose.

The wires going to the fan and the sensor are circled. Test them as I indicated and see if the fan comes on.  Meantime send me a pic of the wires and the area that they are located in I will see where they go on my machine.

Ok thank your you. I will be going out and send them pictures in a few minutes. The sensor you speak off. I believe my is ontop of my radiator. So I just take the two wires off the sensor and tuch the two together ?

That would be the fan sensor. Jump them and the fan should come on. But the bike needs to be running obviously. As far as the other two I’m going to take a look now.

The fan sensor, the wires all in tact ? The blue wires that I see as per the diagram are a 12v positive. The browns I’m not really seeing except for the stator wires.  Double check that it’s not a brown with a stripe on it.  Meantime put a tester on the blue wires and see if the test for 12v positive.

If the Mojave is like the Bayou, and I suspect it's pretty close, there are spare wires at the front for accessories.  a 97 Bayou has a few extra brown and blue wires.  Brown is 12V electric ground (not frame ground) post ignition switch I think and blue is 12V lighting maybe?  Been a minute and can't remember for sure but they are usually listed in the wiring diagram as accessory or Canada version maybe?

      Does anyone have the cdi box wiring? I'm trying to hook up aftermarket cdinbox and i keep confusing myself with the trigger signal wire trigger ground wire and 12v. Any help would be appreciated thank you for your input

      it is a 99 mojave bought it couple weeks ago and it would run i relaced some stuff in the carb like the needle and seat and one of the jets put new plug in it and now it runs good until you rev it way up like wide open throttle then it misses almost like it is hitting a rev limiter could it be that it needs a new carb gasket or what are some ideas that could be wrong with this thing

      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

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      I’m working on a Kawasaki Bayou KLF400 for a family member that doesn’t have spark. I’ve already replace the ignition switch and the stator which were defective. The stator had a melted connector and one of the phase had low resistance and low VAC output. 
      What I’ve figured out so far is that I’m not getting 12V to the ignition coil when I turn the key to the ON position. From what I understand, the 12V should come from the CDI. I’ve resistance tested both wires going from the CDI to the ignition coil (Green/white and black/yellow). They are fine. The only 12V coming from the ECU is on the yellow/red wire.
      I don’t have the wiring diagram for the 400 but I’m working with the one for the Bayou 300 which looks pretty similar except for the wire color between the CDI and ignition coil. On the 300 diagram, the yellow/red wire goes to the ignition coil, not the black/yellow… All the other wires color match except for this one. Not sure if that’s normal?
      Thanks!

      Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.

      I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
      Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.

      I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
      I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?

      I hope I'm not missing something simple!
      Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193

      Any help appreciated!
