UPDATE

ello

far as I could tell no power to the cdi , on any of the seven wire , ignition on .

tested ohms on red /black red wires , , exciter coil,

3.20 m - 3.50 m ohms on my auto ranging meter

I don't fully trust the meter to be honest , bought second hand .

what is ,m, is K 1000 ??? m 1000 000 ???

the pick up coil measures 120 ohms so that's ok ??

I found the two wires to the exciter were badly nipped by the tank , between tank and the frame BUT the wires seen to have not been damaged and the ohm test is basically the same tested either side of the nip. simple broken wire would have been nice eh.:mad:

do I go and buy another meter to test the exciter ? if it is a high reading what does that mean ? would that explain the fault.

thanks in advance

tom

the vin is really hard to see as oil and dirt are on it ... take a flashlight and basically, on your back, rub with a rag on the lower rail of the frame in front of the toe shifter and you should see it ... as far as no spark, i would say stator or the pick-up coil ... if the bike is 10 yrs old, i (myself) would replace the stator which comes with the pick up coil ...

thanx

on the spark issue , I removed the cover / stator is inside , much easyer than I thought ,

4 wires , 8 windings , two of are blackened /burnt , that's were the exciter coil wires go ,no continuity on those two.

other winding, wires has continuity so I think is fine .

took it to a local quad shop he might be able to have it repaired

also slight damage on the outside edge , bits of a small coil spring on magnets of flywheel / slight damage to stator.

is the vin stamped under the bike then near the bottom bash guard ? :huh: I was looking from above or from the outside , not looked under tbh , the guy at quad shop said its had to find also , :wink: he thinks a red / black mudguards is a early one .

thanks again gents

      I need help with wiring on a 1998 (I think, 10th digit of the VIN was W) Bayou. I'm not getting spark, I'm pretty sure it is due to grounds being off because the harness is pretty hacked as far as the electric start and charging system goes. I'm needing a good wiring schematic. I found one online and there are a few things that don't add up on it so I'm skeptical that it is really for my year and model. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Does anybody know where I can buy a complete wiring harness for a Yamaha bear tracker. If not could someone send me a picture of the the colors of the wires coming out of the cdi plug and voltage rectifier. So I can get an idea of how I need to wire it. Also where can I find a wiring diagram for them?

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.

      So I was looking at my John Deere today and though, how could I make this cooler. So I tinted the windows. Lol.
       
      As I got home I was staring at my Polaris and the wife’s kfx. I thought I would have to replace the crank because of piston slap on the Polaris. Turns out I just had to adjust the choke cable a tad more. Runs great.
       
      Why do we have insurance if we only need it sometimes, and that’s questionable.

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      I recently got a 98 warrior 350 that 'needed the carb adjusted' but the reality is it has no spark. I have a new spark plug, plug wire, ignition coil, battery, and cdi box. I checked continuity and took apart and inspected the starter/kill/light switch on the handle bar, and it all looks brand new and checked out. The key switch seems to be working properly, as when off, nothing works, but when switched on, lights and electric starter button work. It turns over fine, and as I just stated, all the lights work. I took all the plastics off and traced all the wires, and only one had a small cut in it, but it was only through the rubber sheathing, not the wire itself (the blue one coming from the stator). I cleaned some grounds, made sure both relays work, and still nothing. I pulled the stator cover and looked at the stator itself, and it looks great. No broken wires or connectors or anything. Still, no spark. I'm at a loss. Where do I go next? Any help is appreciated.
