i was creek riding and my quad died tried to start it back and it would just turn over. so i checked the airbox for water and there was none it was dry, i let it sit for 15mins and it finally started. i rode for about 2hrs then went home. went to start it a week after riding and it would just turn over and wouldnt fire replaced spark plug as dealer suggested and still wont start. i pulled plug out checked it plugged in to the coil n touchin the head no spark. when it s in neutral the neutral light also wont work but if u put it in gear it does until u pull the clutch lever in. i need help the dealer said maybe the stator went bad but another person told me it wouldnt have anything to do with the ignition?? help please

So did you say that if you put it in gear, the neutral light comes on but goes out when you pull the clutch in? I don't fully understand what you mean about the neutral light, but from what I gather, you may want to look into a possible neutral safety switch issue. There is a gear position sensor on the side of the engine case not too far from the shifter. The reverse cable bracket is bolted on right over it. Check the wiring and connections coming from that sensor. If the neutral light is coming on when you shift out of neutral, then you may want to take the sensor switch out and make sure the pins are in tact. Otherwise, check any and all electrical connections, wires, grounds and such. You may want to use a multimeter to trace power from the battery throught the ignition system to see if voltage is lost somewhere. You may also want to try some direct resistance tests on your ignition components.

I agree with dirtdemon electrical problems are a nightmare especially when water is involved. it could be something as simple as some stray mud or water grounding the system out somewhere. Its a long process but you need to check everything in ignition system with multimeter like dirtdemon said. good luck, may the force be with you.
