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

      I had a quad fall in my lap a couple weeks ago. The only things I knew about it was it was a Kawasaki Bayou 220, was in pretty rough shape and was free. I couldn't say no to a fun little project. I've been looking a different ATV forums gathering quite a bit of info and decided this was the one I wanted to join.
      Thanks to this forum, I found the VIN under about an inch of mud and cross referenced it to be a '98. It had been sitting outside for at least 5 years and was told it ran when parked, but had no brakes. Squirrels or mice had been chewing on the handlebar controls and it's generally just kind of beat up.
      So far, I've gone through the carb (not near as bad as I expected), freed up the brakes (will probably need new cables), replaced the spark plug, air filter, petcock and put a new battery in it.
      The gas tank had been empty and looked clean so I put some fresh gas in it and tried to crank it today. I got a neutral light, but the starter button did nothing. I tried pull-starting it and it wouldn't fire. I checked the plug and wasn't getting a spark. I started digging and found some potential issues and some definite problems.
      I have a wiring diagram I found on here but it's just a picture or scan out of a book and hard to read. I don't see a reference to a black/yellow wire, which is my first problem.
      First, it that a factory crimp? One of those wired looks like it goes to the connector in the 2nd pic. Is that just a spade lug type connector? I pulled on it with some needle nose pliers but it didn't seem to want to come off. In the 3rd pic, should there be a fourth wire?
      I've read through and bookmarked the threads Andrew Baker and Arizona have going but I figured I needed to start with these obvious issues first. I have lots of pictures, so if there is something else you want to see, just ask. If I don't already have a pic, I'll take one.

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      Hi Everyone - Need some help.
      Got a nice little 220...clean machine. wiring is a mess. I have a diagram however, the one I have has 4 wires coming from the ignition switch not 2 like mine. So, I cant trace wires properly.
      There is a white one that runs to the Solenoid, and a brown wire...from the Ignition...I dont know where its supposed to go. Also, on the Solenoid, there are 3 wires..W to ignition, B to start relay and B/Y runs up to the front of the machine...and is not plugged into anything...and there isnt a "Mate" missing it. How do they plug into the 4 open shovels by the 20A fuse?
      I'm pretty sure my Lights and start switch/Lights are correct.
      Problem I cant get anything...new battery...cant get the start button to work, cant get any power to the lights or switches...so I know something is not grounded or..
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Tom

      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
