Sportsman 700 faulty CDI?
It's a 2003 Sportsman 700. Friend of my dad's owns it and asked if I could take a look at it. Don't know anything else about it other than one day it just wouldn't start. I started with the simple stuff...replaced spark plugs and tried starting it with the black wire from the cdi disconnected but it still won't fire. I unhooked the solenoid ground (i think) by the battery as it was very rusty and cleaned everything up to shiny bare metal again. Battery is good as it turns over fast and all the lights and dash work. Not getting spark at either cylinder. It has the Ducati cdi which is very likely at fault but seeing how it's not my money to spend on the upgrade kit what can I do to isolate the problem and make sure it isn't something else before I buy the $500 upgrade ignition kit?
