    Yeah, possibly. Mine runs 14.7 volts at idle, but the voltage and the amount of current (amps) are two different things. Mine picks up quite a bit especially when lights are on, etc. That's not abnormal is what I'm saying. But the new regulator could help.

    Just one more quick question, the lights are flickering on idle but stop once i rev it a little. Do you think that could have anything to do with regulator?

    Yeah i haven’t changed the regulator yet. Still waiting on that part. But I’ll let you know what happens once that’s in. Should be this weekend. Thanks for all the ideas! Very helpful.

    Very possible. Have you tried the old regulator with the rope start?

    Yeah it’s 12.7. I jumped it with my truck battery ( kind of sketchy I know) and still nothing with elec start. It cranks great, but no luck on firing even after I’ve had the atv running for a while. The pull start is an arm ripper lol you’re right. Which is why I’d really like to get the electric working again. So I think I can rule out the battery for now. It seems to be operating properly, the only other thing I can think is the voltage regulator. Maybe it’s not sending enough to the sparkcwhen using elec start. But I can’t tel life sure because I don’t get why it would be any different with the pull start. Any thoughts?

    Might also see what the battery voltage drops to when you hit the electric start. If it drops much the battery is probably bad. Sitting it can show full, but when you put it under a load it could drop off, leaving your ignition without enough juice to start.

    12 volts even is actually dead. Full is 12.7, but mine runs about 12.3 and starts fine. Maybe charge it and just make sure it is full, that's the only thing I could think of. How does the pull start work? Mine is an arm-ripper if you aren't careful. Too bad it doesn't have a decompression valve.

    Thats exactly what i thought. So i tested the battery. 12 volts coming out of it. THen i put a booster on it, still no luck. So i pulled the coil wire off from thecdi and put a test light on it. it lit up just barely with elec start. the pull start made it light up like crazy. so i think that rules out the stator. (its new anyway) Any other ideas? only other thing i can think it is is the voltage reg? what are your thoughts on that?v

    Wondering if starter is pulling to much power for the battery to also run the ignition? Maybe check your battery and connections to make sure that it can handle that load.

    FINALLY i got it running. I had a friend come over, and the first thing he did was ask if i used the pull start. I hacent every thought of it. I put the spark plug back in and pulled the pull chord and boom she fired right up. so im a happy camper! BUT im wondering if you know what i can do to fix that electric start? Itll crank all day long but wont fire. I checked the fuse and followed every wire i could with no luck.
