Ya it sounds like your stator is missing the exciter coil. 86 & 87 Fourtrax have an AC-CDI ignition, so ya gotta have that exciter to power the OEM CDI & ignition coil. The PO must have cobbled in a china DC-CDI..?
I'd have to read up in the FSM again to be sure... but if I remember right the fuel pump relay gets a signal from the exciter coil too... so the fuel pump stops running when the motor stops turning for safety purposes. If thats true, then the fuel pump relay won't energize the fuel pump until the exciter coil is hooked up and you are cranking the motor over with the starter.
