As I said in another thread, you should have a meter handy. You don't need to sell your first born to get it, but don't buy a cheap one either. $30-50 will get you one that is good enough for most peoples needs.

There are other things you could probably buy, but frankly I would cross that bridge when I come to it. No need to have a garage full of test equipment that you use once in your lifetime.

I'm no expert on ATV's, but I know a thing or 2 about electronics, at least enough to be dangerous. :)

I'd say a good multimeter ( I have a fluke but you wouldn't have to get that particular brand) and a 12v test light would be almost everything you need for most issues.

Yeah, I agree with Pain and Fourtrax. A good multi-meter and a 12 volt test light is probably about all you'll ever need.
