You need to get the service manual (with electrical circuits) and go through the electrical troubleshooting.

I talked to a guy today and he said to check all my grounds. He said he had a car that wasnt getting spark and he went through and checked all the grounds and got spark

I'm gonna be a smart ass and ask if you've checked the handlebar kill switch.

Happened to me once. A bud rode it and switched the key and slid the kill switch over. I NEVER use the kill, so when I got on it and it wouldn't turn, I almost had a panic attack.

There's a glass fuse under the seat. Maybe it's faulty. My neighbors 300 gave us trouble once with that.

Somebody said to check the output on the stator would that affect the ignition? I thought that it just charged the battery

I think the stator is what actually shoots the juice to everything. You only really need a battery for starting.

Most stators on these machines provide pulse for the ignition as well as charging the battery. I'm not familiar with your particular machine. You would need to get a service manual to verify this.

The stator just supplys charge for the battery you dont need the stator for the bike to run for a moment if you want to drain the battery it does not supply spark for the motor. Im going to do a full wire check on the quad to see if there is a bad ground somewhere

Is the pickup separate from the stator? I've only had a few :huh:Honda's:eek: down that far and the pickup was on it.

I fixed the no spark issue now i have to wait til friday to get oil and gas and a new gas line. Then i will see if i fixed the shutting off when it gets warm problem. Is the resistance on the pickup coil supposed to change when it gets hot. And if so how far is it supposed to go?

The Kawirider99 has not been online for 3 years. You can continue to wait for him to come back if you wish, or you can start a new thread with what your quad's symptoms are.
Forget I responded.
