I figured out today why not much works. This is an as found picture of the CDI wiring.
before you go telling him he needs another harness ?, you and him need to find out what those connectors go to ?, cuz they dont go to the c.d.i. !.Oh no. You’re gonna want another main harness. I bought one last year for $65–here’s a pic after I completely rewrapped it View attachment 150001

when you ground neutral wire, and get light ?, then the switch is bad. fuel tank ( if oem ? ) drain is on the very bottom of tank. if it is a plastic tank ?, some do, some do not have a drain bolt on the bottom of tank.Okay further on. Those were the wires to the fuel gauge and are on the back burner now. Neutral wire is next subject. I can ground the wire with a jumper (I am not use to ground in circuits) and get a neutral light. Same for the Reverse light. Better yet I have pushed The ATV back and forth and feel that it is in neutral (it rolls freely). But cannot get a neutral light by plugging in or using a jumper. Not positive about a good plug in. About ready to cut off rubber and repair with heat shrink. Have pushed down on the shifter to try and get a real neutral. Is it positively in neutral if i can push it forward and backward? With the wire grounded, with a jumper the starter cranks and there is at least some compression. Which brings me to the next phase. Is there a fuel tank drain. There is a little of something that does not smell like gas in the tank. Where is the fuel filter?
they do make a simple gas tank and cap, its plastic, and very pricey !, about 300 bucks last time i bought one.I had a 88 Nissan Frontier that I put 250000 miles on. Sold it in 2007 and I still see it around town occasionally. My wife had a 2003 Honda Odyssey that we sold with 200000 miles and did close to nothing in repairs. Why can they not make an ATV with a simple gas cap and tank?
