I have a 1999 Sportman 335, and of course now it won't start (no spark).

I have read through some of the threads, and have a couple of questions.

I found a schematic for it online and started testing the coils.

*CDI trigger coil
**W to W/R --resistance is close schematic value

*CDI charge coils
**GRN to BLK/R --no resistance, schematic value is 446ohms
(would this cause no spark?)
**GRN to R --resistance is close schematic value

I also borrowed a new ignition coil and spark tester, and that didn't help.

Do I need a new stator?


Any other ideas?
Thanks, Ken

do you have a yellow and yellow/red from the stator? If so check across these.Should be about .34? Could you post the the link from the schematic you used , so I can take a look?

ok yeah, looks like you got a broke wire according to your readings. The CDI charge coils is what power the spark. Check for any broke wire, bad wires,etc. When ,if, you pull the stator check it carefully it might have a broke wire at the stator. I had one like that one time, soldered it back and was good.

I pulled the flywheel off and pulled the stator off. The wires are good to the coil.

If I was to unwind the coil and find the break, and re-wind it back, will this mess anything else up?

As long as the resistance is close, should it work?

I have actually done that before , it's not easy though.Wind it as close as possible to the original. Check the wires for ohms at the stator first, there might be a bad wire in the harness going to the terminal panel.

I checked the wire down to the coil. There are good.

The wire wrapped around the coil is very thin. No continuity around the coil.


Looks like I have to replace the complete stator.
