Hello all. I am new to the forums here so bear with me if I do something wrong or post in the wrong spot. I recently bought a 1996 polaris sportsman 500, The guy I bought it from was upfront and said it had no spark and that it needed a few things... Well the more I tear into it the more I realize that it needs a lot of work. First and foremost he said it had no spark and that it needed a new ignition coil. Well after finally locating the spark plug under the gas tank, itd turns out it has no spark plug wire at all! I know just enough mechanically to get me in trouble so if some one could maybe draw a diagram of their spark plug wire and what all components it has in it and where it goes after it leaves the spark plug boot. Again sorry if this is not worded right but maybe you get what I'm asking.

I have a 2011 sportsman 500 ho and here is a pic of the electrical for it. Just click the link or copy and paste it. Hopefully helps, otherwise you might need to download a service manual.
