Did you plug the pulse generator's wire back on the harness?I assume you unplugged it to remove the crankcase cover.

SOURCE: no spark on 97 Vmax

Firstpull a plug and put a long screw in the plug end and lay it against the metal there some place and have someone turn over the motor. See if you are getting any spark to the plug arcing from the wire to the metal. If you are it is not the coils and may be the distributar ignition modulator. The is located under the distributar cap and is a plastic coated small black device that is sorta half moon shaped wraped around the center shaft of the distributer. You might try heating it up with a hair dryer and getting it good and warm and hurrying to replace the distributer cap and then turning the engine over. If it sputters or even starts for a minute or longer then it is bad. Let me know if this does anything for you and I will continue when I hear what you got so far. The Raz

How do u remove starter on a 1998Polaris 250trailboss


Secrets of Starter Motor and Drive Replacement for 1999 Polaris Scrambler 400 4 X 4 1. Yes you must access both sides of the starter to remove it. Remove clutch covers on left side of machine and covers and pull starter cover on right side of machine. 2. There are two bolts on the clutch pulley side and two bolts under the pull start cover that must be removed to free the starter/starter drive. The starter and drive must be removed and installed from the left (clutch pulley) side together. That's different than the 500. 3. You only need to remove the positive lead from the battery and starter motor post. The starter is grounded by being bolted to frame. 4. The starter is at the bottom of the motor, not like the 500 at all which is accessed through the air box. You can find it by removing the plastic skid plate on the bottom of the engine. You can prop up two wheels on the left side so the machine is 45 degrees tipped up onto both right wheels. Make sure the fuel and oil caps are screwed in tight. 5. It is difficult, but you can remove the two bolts on the left side without removing the actual drive and driven clutches. The clutch cover must be removed though. 6. Under the pull start cover on the right side you can remove the two bolts holding the starter in. One of them is about 4" long and goes through the actual starter motor. It's tough to remove without bending because your u joint partially blocks it. 7. Now you can wiggle the starter and drive out from the left side through the slot in the frame. 8. Decision before you start: How much do I pay for parts? The range is from $50 - $150. Is the expensive part better? This is a difficult repair. Can I really do it myself? If not, what am I willing to pay for labor? I did it for $50, but if it goes out again I will try to find someone who will do the labor for $150 or less. I might go for the more expensive parts if the cheaper ones don't hold out.

New starter spining not engaging


I believe on the 2007 V Star that you have to remove the side cover on the left side of the engine to replace the starter. It has a sprocket the slides onto the starter shaft. If you just unbolt and remove the started the sprocket falls out of place and when you install the new starter the sprocket that turns the motor over does not go back onto the starter shaft. Remove left engine side cover and install sprocket wth chain back onto the starter shaft. Should fix your problem.

When i connect the starter solonoid to the battery the starter turns over on it' own what is wrong


So you have an open circuit somewhere. In this case you likely attached something backwards. The easiest thing to do is to go back and slowly take it apart again and put it back together. If, like me, you do this stuff from memory of when you took it apart it should jog your memory.

Turns but does not start


There are so many things! Firstly check spark to the plugs and fuel to the system and the cylinders. Then check timing. After that it gets complicated!

No fire is getting to spark plug. No fire is coming thru plug wire. How do I get to the magneto?


The ignition unit will be behind the starter cover, remove the screws securing the cover, remove the starter, the unit will be to the left of the flywheel, it is not servicable, remove the two securing screws and pull the unit away, when re fitting a replacement unit set the air gap between the unit and fltwheek to 0.3mm

Poulon chain saw model 2175 no spark. What to check?


Remove the starter assembly and left side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module after trying a new spark plug gapped at 0.020". Remove the ignition switch wire from the module and try for spark again--if still nothing, use a thin business card for a gap gauge between the flywheel magnets and the module poles. Loosen the mounting screws, let the module contact the magnets through the card, then tighten the screws. Try for spark again--if still nothing, replace the module. Use the above procedure to install the new part. Hope this helps!

How do i replace the spark plugs in a jaguar 2000?


THE SPARK PLUS ARE LOCATED UNDER THE VALVE COVERS, ON TOP OF THE VALVE COVERS THERE IS A SMALL PLATE COVER WITH 8 LITTLE BOLTS THAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED WHICH WILL THEN SHOW YOUR COILS, UNPLUG COILS PULL COIL OUT AND SPARK PLUG WILL BE LOCATED UNDER THE COILS.
The left side is easy, just pop off the left side engine cover...remove the coils and the plugs are right there. The right side is a whole other matter completely, you need to remove the intake manifold to be to access them. It is a relatively simple job if you are even slightly mechanically inclined. Ensure you replace the upper intake manifold gaskets when you remove the intake manifold.
