Hello and welcome to Fixya, We can start here with a few suggestions, but we may need your model and year if this does not help you. First remove your spark plug and put the plug cap back on. Now lay it against your head or cylinder, just make sure its getting a good ground to engine, now turn the engine over and watch plug to see if it sparks. If it does the problem is elsewhere and I will need further info to help you. If it does not spark, check your plug cap, make sure its not loose on plug wire, try turning it clockwise to make sure its tight. Next you will need a multimeter and do a resistance test between your plug cap and your primary on your coil, then from cap to ground. Then test to see if your getting power to your coil with your meter. If your still stuck, before we go any further let me know what model and year you have and I will get your problem solved and get you back riding! Thanks for using Fixya, look forward to hearing back so we can get you running again. CycleWorx157

My four wheeler back fired now won't start I don't think it's getting any fire to spark plug

Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt). run fault codes to determine if a position sensor has failed.

It keeps flashing volts.

Your Charging system is not working. You may need to replace the alternator. The only reason it runs when you are hooked to a charger is your battery is not holding a charge and the alternator is not producing the electricity needed to fire the spark plugs. When you hook up to charger, you now have the voltage necessary to fire the spark plugs.

My grizzly 660 is back firing when i accelerate. I have changed the spark plug. what else can i check for?

Make sure that the intake manifold rubber is not ripped or separated. It is a common problem on a lot of Yamaha 4 wheelers after about 4 or 5 years.

Why would a suzuki 4-wheeler not start. I have

Did you change the fuel filter? Is there a way to confirm that you're getting gasoline to the carburetor? If it fired once it should mean that you have spark to the plugs but there could also be a short in the kill switch circuitry that kills the ignition system. Pull a spark plug and put it in the spark plug wire socket, ground it against the motor and crank the engine and see if you're getting a good spark. Ensure that the air filter isn't dirty.
