Could be rectifier/regulator or ECM (electronic ignition control module), The rectifier will probably be under the seat. It looks like it is made of "pot" metal and has cooling fins. It is usually attached to the frame by two bolts and has a couple of electrical wiring connectors. Disconnect and unbolt. Look at the back of it, it should be a shiny plastic type material. If it is bad, it will be bulging, charred, maybe have a hole in it, and have that distinct burnt electrical smell. If so, it has let the "magic smoke" out. A new one will be pricey $200 - $400. Try Ebay or used ATV parts websites. I have had some luck there and it was much cheaper. I don't have a clue of how to troubleshoot the ignition box. Sorry, but I hope this helps. I have had this type problem on Artic Cat 4 wheeler and Yamaha outboard. Hope this helps.

    If you can locate the rectifier on the bike, take it off and look at the back.99.9 % of the time, if it is bad, you will know by looking at the back. You will have to remove it to see this though. You probably won't be able to tell anything from looking at the front. If it looks ok, you may be able to find out how to check it with a ohmmeter/multimeter. Unfortunately, I do not have that expertise. I would not think it was the stator. They seldom fail. I could be a bad connection somewhere or loss of good ground for the stator or rectifier. THis is harder to find. Take a look at the back of the rectifier. It shouldnt take but just a few minutes. Good luck!

New battery, new solenoid.... turn key display lights come on but will not ignite. Do not get a click or anything.


Sounds like your new battery was not charged when it was sold to you. Put it on a 12 volt charger for 6 hours.
