Picked up a fourtrax 70 for the kids yesterday. Needless to say they are more than anxious to get going but no spark. I cleaned up all the grounds and checked and cleaned connections. The grounds and kill switch seems to funtion ok. Key was eliminated wires are just connected together. How can I tell if there is power to the coil? What would be the first place to start on this problem cdi, stator, pulse generator? I pulled the side cover but didn't have a flywheel tool so thats still on there. It was suprising clean inside no rust. So are the aftermarket coils and CDIs for sale on EBAY junk or will they work.

there is a static test that you do pretty quick on the IG coil as well. if you have a multi meter, set it to ohms and check resistance from spark plug end (secondary side) to primary side should have about 7-10k ohms with no cap and around 14kohms with spark plug cap. and then check between 2 primary post, (if it has 2) should be about.5 or so
