    Unhappy help/1996 Polaris SLT 700 - no spark, broken Tan wire

    i have recently picked up my first pwc no spark. i had pulse from cdi to coil nothing out of coil. so i replaced coil and still nothing. so i think the stator may be bad. i pulled stator waiting for del on new update.

    so pulling wires out of e box i noticed a broken wire. 3 tan wires.
    1 oil sending
    2 buzzer on handlebars
    3 is broken off in grommet on lid don't know where it goes.
    battery?

    or is my problem in the safty shutdown if 96 has one.

    so if any can tell me where that wire comes from maybe i can go for a ride

    Welcome Bartman

    The broken Tan wire would have gone to the overheat sensor, which would be either on the water bar or the exhaust pipe. Do NOT connect it to anything else.

    What year is your SLT 700?

    Did you order the Ignition System Update Kit for your engine, or just a replacement stator same as the old one? You can read more about the Update Kits via my signature links

    There are two different ignition coil types for that two cylinder engine. Gen III (aka Update Kit) and original type. The two coil types are not interchangable. Which part number did you install?

    Did you purchase and install an actual Ignition System Update Kit?

    The ignition update kits come with a new Gen III ignition coil (4010175) and new spark plug wires, along with a new Gen III stator and Gen III CDI. All these Gen III parts work together, and cannot be mixed with old style ignition parts. That is why Polaris packaged them as a kit.

    4060121 I think is the old style ignition coil, which will not work with the Gen III CDI.

    Speaking of which, what is the part number(s) on that new CDI? Hand written part numbers override factory silkscreened labels.

    The temp sensor is not critical to the ignition system, but it is important for the safety of the engine. If there is a water flow problem these engines can overheat in a big hurry. You want that sensor to be installed in order to reduce the risk of expensive engine damage by warning you.
