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.

Hello. I'm new so I hope I'm posting in the right place. My neighbor gave me a nice looking Bayou 220, but I can't get any fire to the plug. No lights, nothing. So far I've put in a brand new battery and relay. So those are good for sure. No neutral light comes on when the key is turned. Where should I start to try to figure out this electrical problem? I have a new coil to install, but common sense tells me it has to be something before that. I'm cheap so taking it to the dealer is out of the question. Does anyone know the process of elimination in a situation like this? I'd might add it LOOKS like the wires are all where they belong, but I can't say they are for sure. If the machine wasn't in such great shape, I wouldn't bother, but the grandkids should have a lot of fun on this. Thank you in advance for any help someone can offer.

Hello All, Finally got around to messing with quad. I found bad grounds & faulty coil. Ordered new today. Stole coil from other quad and made spark......woohooo....👍🏻. Well I temp installed new coil and made spark. Figured I would pour little gas in carb to see if it fires. No fire ..tried a little starting fluid just to see if it would fire. No fire.. well if I have spark, add clean fuel but No fire or booms from quad what’s so ever. Any suggestions..

I have a 2005 Arctic Cat 500 with a susuki motor, 2500 hours. I was riding it yesterday, came out this morning, will turn over but no start. I have spark and fuel. Took carb off and cleaned it. Back firing out of exhaust and air intake. Not sure how one day it runs but 12 hours later it won't. Just need some pointers on where to look.
