Default No fire

Got no fire on both cylinders,tried fresh plugs but no fire.Motor was starting to bog and miss when you stab the throttle but would clear up and run fine,when I say bog I mean like it would run rich,could really smell rich exhaust,during the same ride the gauge display would come off then on,eventually we stopped to take a brake and it would not restart.Imediately checked for fire to the plugs and nothing on both cylinders.I tested the stator earlier this year and it checked ok.I am wondering if the voltage regulator is toasted.Any ideas would be appreciated.

if you tested the stator earlier this year it may be bad now. Could be a short in your kill switch or wires to the key too. check all the wires for shorts first.

I just had a similar problem with mine on the weekend and it turned out to be the stator due to separation of the flywheel. I checked the stator a week ago prior to going on a trip and everything tested fine. My problem was with the blue-yellow, blue-green, blue-red wires 15 ohm wires...one of them was open due to an open stator coil. Luckily I found a used stator and flywheel and had her back on the trails within a few hours.

I disconnected kill switch,grip warmers and key switch,I dont know if you can get fire with key switch disconnected.The reason I wasleaning towards voltage regulator was it was loose for awhile before I checked the stator earlier,thought it might be banging around and broke internally,I would think that I would get some sort of power out of the stator wether it be the dc side or ac side.Does anyone know on a runnig 900 if you pull it over if the headlights or gauges light up a little while hand cranking like my 02 800 rmk does?Thanks for any info

Check first for good spark then compression and see if the plugs are getting wet

I know that sounded kinda funny,when I crank on my 02 800 rmk the head light slightly lights up because you are turning the engine over enough to produce enough voltage to light the headlight,therefore what I was getting at was if 900 did the same thing.Basically trying to see if it is producing any voltage when hand cranked.

Didn't sound funny at all...I knew exactly what you meant. The reason it won't work on this sled is that there is a relay that needs to be energized to allow power to be applied to things other than the ignition circuit. The relay isn't energized until after the sled starts; therefore, no lights when hand cranking...

If you have no spark on either cylinder then I would test the stator (even if you recently tested as in my case within a week it went from testing perfect to not so perfect and needing replacement).

Because you have no spark on either cylinder I would tend to believe that it's not a coil problem as it seems strange that both coils would fail at the same time (although stranger things could happen).

You can test the capacitor (although I don't think it does much to prevent you from getting spark).
