2002 Sportsman 700 Twin "No Spark"
Hello, I'm not sure if I have posted here before, but I'm in need of any ideas about what I've discovered with this ATV......... It has a Ducati Alternator-driven CDI/Coil Ignition system. I have taken the steps of testing to this point: The manual says 34VDC for the Exciter Coil; I measure 20VDC. The Pulse/Trigger Coil measures correctly. I have tested the ETC switch, which is good adjustment-wise, and although this Exciter component value is out of spec, it's my inclination that this is still a dead CDI. I should mention I work in a small shop, and have vast experience with many vehicles, especially racing, but as we all know every day brings a new challenge. This is a big one, considering I had to wait 2 weeks for my peak reading adapter before I could start my tests. BTW, I am a Polaris owner too!
