Bombardier ds 650 electrical problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 ds 650. Sometimes it will start sometimes it wont. when it does start it will only run for about 10 seconds and then it dies just like you hit the kill switch. Even if you hold the throttle at a higher rpm it sounds great till it dies. im sure it has to be electrical can anybody give me some feedback

Get a repair manual and start testing ignition components, my best guess would be that you have a bad CDI box, but it could be alot of different things so you would be best off testing everything and checking for bad connections before you start buying parts. Good luck, these types of problems can be tough.

thanks josh. I got a shop manual im gonna start going thru all the tests with a voltmeter. it is definatly electrical. It wouldnt even start tonight so I pulled the plugs and it would only spark one time when i hit the start button. Thanks for the feedback. I just wish they didnt make stuff so complicated. Whatever happened to the good ole days when it wouldnt start youd either pull it or coast start it and you was good to go.

Check your battery, They have to have a good strong one to run. Don't over charge it no more than 2anp. If it's not that then it could be the voltage reg. Check voltage at the battery. If it's over 14+ it could be over charging.

Thanks thebom. Yeah the battery was dead from sitting so long. I took the battery out of my Honda that I ride everyday and put it in. I'll check it though I'll try anything

These bikes need a good #15 battery. I've seen them pop ans snap in the mid rpm and up with a low battery. The charging system won't wont run the bike by it's sefl.

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.
