I have a 1996 sportsman 500 ho 4x4 that has no spark. I've looked everywhere and no luck on a manual with out ordering one. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be or how to test it. I've checked and there is no signal to the coil. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Thanks guys! I used the wiring diagram and found a open in the stator.

The service manual has a chart of which wires to test for continuity with a multi-meter. When you find an open, it means that one of the circuits has no continuity or an "open". Which means that there is a broken wire, a solder joint that has released or a bad coil winding in the stator. Buddy
