Question 2000 Grizzly 600 No spark...

This problem has lasted about a month or so.... Now the weathers getting better so I have to get this thing running.
The engine turns over perfectly, I have replaced the ignition coil, the stator with a new one from ricky stator, and the CDI unit with a new one from Yamaha. The ignition coil and Stator checked bad with my trusty multimeter so I replaced them. The CDI seemed like the next reasonable thing to change. THe two fuses in the battery compartment are good. Are there other fuses that I could check and if so where are they located? I checked the run/stop switch and it seems to be fine. (the engine turns over in the run position and does not turn over in the stop position) I also checked the wiring harness as best that I could. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks Naysayer.. I appreciate the reply. I think the neutral switch is good, due to the fact that the engine turns over in neutral but not in gear. I also replaced the rectifier. I am curious about the starter relay, i think it is good however because the engine does turn over. A riend has some schematics and today we are going to wring out some wires.

Thanks
Jim

Well as far as I can tell the wiring is good. Some dirty connections that I cleaned but I have continuity on the orange wire from the ignition coil to the CDI. I also checked the brown green and white wires from the. Stator. And they were good as well. My next step is to retrace the steps by the manual my friend brought to me. Is it possible to install the new stator I bought from RMstator wrong? Is there a gap setting or anything I might be missing?

Well I think I found the problem.... The stator assembly that I installed from RMstator, had the red and white wires reversed from the yamaha part I removed. I'm contacting rmstator find out my next step....

Well I contacted rm stator and the tech told me that the colors of the wires shouldn't matter because they test them prior to shipping. Then after that he tells me to swap the wires around and try it. I did that and it didn't work either way. I checked each wire for continuity and for resistance to ground, all checked well. I went to the local yamaha dealership and talked to a mechanic and he told me that I have checked everything that he would have checked. We pretty much decided that most likely the CDI I bought was bad so I have ordered another one. It should be here this week. I'll keep you posted. I appreciate your post trying to help.

Thanks,
Jim

The spark plug wire could be shot and you can not tell if it is unless you cut the spark plug wire open and look at it.

Griz 600 no spark

Hi Dan, I had two problems that were causing me problems. First I installed the stator pickup upside down. So make sure you install the pickup properly.... The magnet should line up with the stator in order to work properly. As soon as i flipped the stator pickup i had spark but the engine was backfiring and not running...... So the Second thing was that the red and white wires were reversed and had to be swapped on the new stator. I filed down a finishing nail to make a tool to do this. once I swapped those wires it ran perfect and I haven't had a problem since.

Hope this helps.
Jim
