When you say new carb kit what exactly do you mean as this problem sounds more like a fuel problem rather than electrical although I would bypass the engine kill switch just to be sure and also the side stand cut out switch, have you cleaned out the pilot jets and air bleed pipes (do not poke anything into the holes just blow them out).
Does the vehicle tickover ok and only cut out when riden?

    also check the fuel tap on the tank, if it has a prime position leave it on that setting and see if the problem persists

Have a 1994 Kodiak 400 and have no fire to coil and no spark what do you think that is


It is most likely gonna be the cdi inside the motor. Those are famous for going out. It's not a bad change tho. The part is about 250 dollars and you'll need a new gasket and oil. And really that's all.

A 2000 yamaha grizzly 600 has no spark? I put a new spark plug no spark. I put a new ignition coil no spark. what do i do next?


The most common reason on ATVs with no spark is the pickup coil in the stator. There are test for the ignition system and if you will give me your email I will send you the procedure as decribed in the manual. I cant copy teh images to this format but can through email..

I have a 2003 yamaha 400 kodiak runing fine and all of a sudden everything quit no lights no brake lights winch power nothing checked all fuses wires connections everything no clue what the problem could...


I had the same problem on my 2003 Kodiak. It ended up being the CDI Box. The Warn Winch was the cause. I had to replace the CDI Box on my twice before figuring out it had to do with the winch since it happened only after using it. I used the winch before when new and never had a problem.

Hi i have a 1997 yamaha 350 warrior i have no spark to the spark plug what could be


hello, you probably need to have your stator checked out, sometimes the pickup coil in the stator will go out, also you can try ign coil, the one spark plug wire is hooked to,warriors are bad about cdi going out, mine would idle, would not rev up, would bog down, source coil in stator probably needs to be checked also..

Was riding and just quit running cant get spark yamaha 2002 yfm 400 atv 2 wheel drive


This is the order in which you should check the following
  1. Check fuses(If all are good,Continue down the list)
  2. Check for power from the stator while turning the engine over(If you have power continue down the list)
  3. Check coil (Check voltage input while turning engine over)(if no voltage continue down the list)
  4. Check CDI (The only way to test is to try on another atv of the same year and model)
Please take time to rate this fixya
