Hi all, I'm trying to help a buddy out with his 03 (I believe) predator 500. He brought it to me not running after sitting for a couple years saying it died when he parked it. I rebuilt the carb and set timing, figuring it was just a tight valve issue after I checked them. After I got it back together it still doesn't run.
It will fire up and idle as long as you hold the starter button. As soon as I let off the button the spark stops. I have an in line spark tool an can watch it. I'm not much on these polaris's I have all Honda in my stable.
Any suggestions?
Thanks, Sam

check the etc gap on the throttle, check the circuit breakers in the black bags, that's where I would start!

I would bet it's the starter/light switch. Common problem with these. Try disassembling and cleaning the switch.

Thanks! That was my next venture...
I replaced the "bags" with inline fuses and unplugged the connection at the throttle and still the same results. I see the coil specs is .3-.5 and mine is .6ohms so that should be ok... I would think.

Thanks again for the reply.

Cleaned the switch...no go

Anybody have a link to test the stator or secondary on the coil?

Thanks
