i have 88 fourtrax that when you turn the key on it will fire once then stop. when you turn the key off (or kill switch) and then back on it will fire once more. i have pulled the plug out and grounded it to the engine and watched it do this. once it sparks the first time it wont do it again until i turn off the switch or key then turn it back on. any ideas what would be causing this?

you need a new c.d.i..i've seen this happen so many times..replace your c.d.i..and this will fix it...make sure you get the same year and make..different year c.d.i's wont work on these older models.
