I have a friend that has a 01 400 big bear thats not getting any spark. He thought it might be the control module but the dealer told him they "hardly ever" go bad. So aside from that he is wanting troubleshooting tips. Any ideas where to start??
Thanks

Goggle it for a service manual. They have troubleshooting.

I have replaced a stator on a Yamaha Warrior with no spark and that fixed it. It's known to go out. Not sure if the big bear is the same or not. I also had one I never did figure out and sold it. I think you can find the Ohm readings on the net for checking the stator. Also, Dryer will check it out for free or did for me.

Like Kevin my first thought was the stator but I would start with the stuff mushroom hunter listed because all of that can be checked for free and it's easy.

Thanks for the tips. That's pretty much what I told the guy but he says he doesnt have time to mess with it. I think he is looking for someone to help him with it. I really don't have time so I was hoping Scott267 would jump on this. The owner of the Big Bear is willing to pay for help.
