Question about Motorcycles
Without a wiring diagram for you bike we all will just guessing what that is but. it mite be a fuse link. if you are not sure. see if any type of markings, part#######, and go to www.ask.com/ or
www.wiki.org/ or www.infolinks.com/
/what is this device and put the numbers [enter]
it looks like a fuse link, remove any hot wires and test it with ohms meter, if it pegs out or the needle moves, than it okay, if the needle doesnt move than open, or burned out., i would check with the yamaha shop, bap auto part, or foreign auto parts store, or NAPA auto parts store. you see that red round piece is the coil, you have to remove the hot wire and test with ohms meter too.
/how to test fuse link with ohms meter/
/how to test coil under normal use/
/how to adjust points and condenser/

I'm not familiar with all quads and all the kill switch locations. Does it have a tip-over kill switch? Is it working? Is the quad in neutral? Is the neutral light on? Many engines will not spark if the neutral light is not on. Are the headlights off when starting?
How good is your battery? A low battery can kill spark. Test for spark by grounding the threads of the plug against the cylinder. Have a friend kick the bike while you watch for spark. Assuming no spark, then check all the kill switches with an Ohmmeter to be sure each switch is working properly. Sometimes a switch goes bad. Try disconnecting all kill switches then check spark.
Check the wiring harness, even under the gas tank and seat. Are all the connectors clean and with a tight connection? Any abraded wires? Check the ignition switch also. The switch can go bad as well. Are the flywheel coils good > is the battery getting a charge?
Still no spark? If CDI then get it checked.
If points then file or replace them along with a new condensor and reset the gap then time the engine. >> I hope this helps.
Please rate this answer. Thanks trsrhntr!

Hi, add a new ground wire and ground it to the MOTOR very important. Just take any ground wire you have and ground it to the motor.. Once that is done check agian for spark. If still no spark. Make sure the cdi box is pluged in all the way and coil leads... There is only a few things that make it stop sparking.. Stator pick up coil ground wire cdi box then coil...
Check the leads and coils.. also cables from the coils to the ignition system..
