you can only run a cdi off a predator 500 03-04. I would check to make sure you dont have a bad key switch or a kill switch grounding out and not giving you spark before going to the cdi. there is also a black sealed bag back by the rear shock that has a self resting breaker that when get dirty or wet over time go bad. You have to cut that bag open to check it tho.

04 Polaris predator 500 trail build(in the works)
started life as a replacement frame so a ground up build

whats the best way to test a key switch and kill switch? does the breaker have a button for manual reset, or do I just bypass it , if it's bad to test to see if i have spark?
