2001 Yamaha Warrior 350 - ONE SPARK! NEED HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a 2001 Warrior 350 that has had its fair share of ignition problems. The last time it was riden was September 2012 and it did not start easily, but did after about 3 minutes of cranking. Fired up fine the rest of the day. Got home, cleaned it off, wouldn't start. Currently, we figired out that the problem I am having is I only get one spark each time the key is turned on, then nothing. Turn the key off and on again and you get one more spark.

I have replaced the stator pick-up coil combo, both test where they should in their ohms, but did come from e-bay and not a reputable company. I have tried the CDI, rectifier, and ignition coil off of my brothers 99 Warrior which starts on the first tap of the start button without fail every time, and same thing on my quad. I then put my CDI rectifier, and ignition coil on his quad and it fired right up, so I knew it wasn't them. I even tried swapping the entire wire harness. I pulled the flywheel, looked at the little half circle metal piece, it is ok. My flywheel is good. I tried the parking break disconnect, but am not 100% sure that I did this correct. Need someone to explain this better.

Still having the same symptom after all of these changes. I am starting to go nuts, :aargh::aargh::aargh:, so I was hoping maybe someone could offer a little help. I am starting to wonder if something is wrong with the stator and it is somehow affecting the spark, like maybe I got a defective part. Only other thing I could think to do is swap my brothers side cover and stator to see if it is that my stator is bad. If it were bad though, why would the ohms test well?

If you have any ideas that I haven't already tried, please let me know. Thanks!!!

I got the quad started this weekend. The problem was that I bought a cheap stator, and it wasn't until I read that they can come bad if purchased cheap, I went with the one from Rmstator.com. Reliable and has a 1 year warrenty. Sparked like crazy and fires right away now. Thanks for your help.
