Never seen a blue Honda 350, that doesn't mean they don't exist. 2000 to 2006 350s had the CDI just behind the front wheel coil spring, and VIN numbers are stamped on the top frame crossmember that the bull bar attaches to.

Not really, if you look at the front bull bar, it has two stays, just under the headlights, that go back under the plastic and mount onto the frame. On Hondas the number is stamped on top of the flat piece of frame that runs across between these mounting points.

Right, well you haven't got a 350 if it is 93 as they stopped making the 350D in 1989. I'm not entirely sure which type of ignition the 350D has, as the 300 is a strange AC/DC hybrid which doesn't have a separate "exciter" coil, and does have a positive feed from the ignition switch so from the battery, which would indicate DC, but also has a direct feed from one wire of the stator. However the 250 does have an exiter coil and no connection to the battery, so is AC. Your problem could be plug, coil, CDI or trigger coil, I would go for plug first, then HT coil, as these are cheaper and easier to replace than CDI. If that doesn't work then it may be time to get a new CDI. Genuine Honda ones will have that same HA7 C1545 number on them. If you can, check the wires to the CDI when the fault is present, as this would show if there is a problem elsewhere in the ignition system.

Default No spark 1993 fourtrax honda 350 cc

Well checked wiring with meter every thing seemed ok .I then drove into town brought a CDI and still no spark.
I did change the coil a couple days ago with one off a old Honda 110 trike but that never get spark back from that so now looks wiring ok
new cdi did nothing but drain my pocket book.I now thinking perhaps the pulse generator but I no small engine mechanic that fir certain but
I know if I take this in to be fixed it would cost more then the thing is worth.
I may have to but any way of checking these pulse generators?
I also found out from dealer that these were made the fourtrax up to 1994 and started in 1988 I believe the guy said there so thought I should let
Merryman know as he seems to be very up on these atv.and gave me some tips to look at which I must say very kind of him
I also wondering about the rectifier if they every go much but the reading seemed that it was operating.
Also on the front end opposite side of the cdi there another seal box I wonder what they are as cannot seem to find a service manual online
for this old gal so hard to know what some parts are but the neutral switch works as well as the reverse switch also had proper oms but I think after I get this running again I ground these and be done with that stuff.Also the shut off switch on the handle bars seemed to function too when we checked it a couple days ago now.
Just so odd the thing would lost spark time to time but always can back but for two years now its been sitting waiting for it to fix itself but never happen really ran a week ago brought it inside to service change the battery and went to start it and hasn't had spark since.The wiring all look OK and no rips or shorts present any where got me baffled & so made I went and brought a CDI and they had a fuel pump Honda brand I bought too as understand Honda stopped making them so thought I have a spare in case as there also a weak part.Now I thinking what didn't I wait until I had it running again before wasting money for parts not even needed.
Also when I kick it over with the kick starter the light shines so thinking stater OK but perhaps that may be the problem too I lost as what else to do.

Pulse generator or "trigger coil" can be checked by spinning the engine over and checking you are getting an AC voltage from it. Honda recommend using their "peak voltage adaptor" on your volt meter for this, but I have tried without and got a voltage, it can be quite small but is usually over 2v. You keep mentioning kicking it over, faults are a lot easier to find using the electric start.

I'm a bit puzzled as to the reference to them being made up to 94 as they disappear from Babitts on-line parts books in 89.

Neutral switch is connected to the CDI on 300s and I bet it is on the 350, did you check that this wire is connected? On the 300 Honda kept changing how it worked, so early ones earthed when in neutral, then earthed when not in neutral and finally pos to CDI when in neutral, which is why CDIs from different years can't be used on 300s. I don't know if the same applies to the 350s. I would also disconnect the voltage regulator and then check for a spark, doesn't affect all Hondas but the 450 won't spark if the regulator dies.
