My 02 Polaris sportsman won't start. I have no spark at the spark plug. What should I check next?
Hi. I'm not sure what you have for tools. A multimeter and a test light are a good start. Start by checking the spark plug. If you can't test it, get a new one. Use a test light and probe the (+) terminal on the coil (Is There Power with the key on?). If not, check the fuse and related wiring and stator. (The seat and fuel tank may both need to be removed). Now probe the (-) side of the coil. With the test light clamped to battery (+) terminal. Crank the engine over and see if the test light is flashing. If not, check the pickup coil. Is it spinning while the engine is cranking? It is possible that the ignitor is defective but your diagnostics will prevent you from throwing parts at your bike. Let me know how the repairs are going. Good Luck.
