    Raider Ignition Issue....

    I think I have an ignition issue... It starts and then dies... I pulled the plugs and reconnected them to the spark plug wires. I held the plugs next to the block and hit the start button. I only get a spark when I initially push the button and when I release it. What could this be??? Stator??? CDI??? COIL???

    Try unplugging the blk/wht wires up front and see if it's the kill switch going bad. If this does not cure it...it could be a coil ....stator and or CDI. Get out the trusty OHM meter and check the specs

    Gee, mine is doing the EXACT same thing right now.... Except it only fires when you first hit the starter, and that is it.

    Yes a few years ago I had the ski in storage for over a year and the MSD CDI went bad... This would be the second time I replace the MSD CDI.... Think I'm going back to the factory CDI... These MSD CDI's are garbage...

    So do I.. But it's not something I could "borrow", so I may be screwed for a while.
