The charging system is comprised of a alternator, voltage regulator and a bridge rectifier. If the battery is not calling for power, the voltage regulator will not turn on the alternator. If the battery is calling for power and the alternaotr is on and the rectifier is not working, the power goes to ground.
Check the voltage at the battery with the machine running. You should have 12 or more volts - preferably around 14. Find the rectifier - it will be a cube with cooling fins on it. With a self powered test light, test it. A rectifier is made up of diodes ... the diodes clip off one-half of the AC cycle making rectified AC which charges the battery. Your test light should light in one direction and not the other. If it lights in both directions or neither direction ... your rectifier is suspect.
This is a lot ... when you get this stuff checked ... we will check the next stuff.

Try jumping across the starter soleniod. If that don't start the machine then your starter probably needs to be rebuilt. Rebuild kits can be purchased for about 35 dollars from any motorcycle shop that deals with J&M ATV or Mcdonald ATV. both these places have websites that will tell you where a dealer is near you.

All 4 stroke engines work excatly the same as far as timing goes You can tine any engine manualy off # 1 cylinder on the compressition stroke . Out of 360 degrees a complete rotation of the engine on an engine of this size you should be fireing at about 8 or so degrees before top dead center on # 1 cylinder . If you convert 8 degrees out of 360 degrees that means the timeing would be vary close to what it should be if the plug fired when the pistion was 4.5 thousands of an inch before top dead center on the compresstion stroke on # 1 cylinder . If you have a digital dial calipar you can put the bottom end into the spark plug hole and measure this farly acuratly . This will get you vary close and just tweek it from there .And then look for your timing mark on the magnito and then you will see how to line that up Good luck
