this is my first forum post here
I have recently bought this neat old 1989 yamaha Pro-Hauler atv for a few hundred bucks, non running.
Ive got quite a few bikes and quads and fix them up and ride as a hobby so this isnt completely new to me or my friends.
It was made very clear to me before i bought it that it was not running and has no spark.
I was told by the previous owner that he was told by the man he bought it from that he thought it was a bad cdi (he never had it running either),
I did a quick ohm check of the stator and personally i think the stator is bad.
Ive charged up the batt and cranked it over and confirmed no spark, I think everything is connected correctly, Main fuse is not blown.
I need some help...
Does anyone have a service manual for this bike or an equivalent?; scans or info from the electrical troubleshooting section of the manual would be a huge help.
Is the motor the same as a bear tracker or timber wolf?
Can any one give me any idea on what range of ohm values one should expect to see on this stator, mainly the trigger coil?.
I think it should be 200-330 ohms (educated guess based on treads about other yamahas) and I believe when i checked it quickly with an auto ranging meter is was more in the range of 22,000 - 26,000 Ohms which made me think it prob wasn't the CDI but instead a bad trigger coil but obviously I need to do more testing
Any help or conversation would be appreciated
