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.

What is/are the length/lengths of a throttle cable for a 1997 Honda Recon 250? Thank You
You have an inner cable and outer cable... they BOTH have to be specific lengths,(and they are not the same).. Did yours break?... get pinched?.. Its easier to purchase the original factory cable than try to make one! MANY MANY years ago you could buy all types of cable ends, inner wire, outer sheathing and make your own..now its not $$$ feasible to make your own,, and CHANCE having it break or an end fall off (the wrong end) and end up inside your engine!!..ooppsss.. You will have to get someone who works in a parts dept. to measure a NEW one..inner and outer.
