    Help please! 1995 900 zxi ran great last week now sparks once then no more

    Have a 1995 900 ZXI that i restored and has been my baby. This was my first rebuild and I'm proud to say it's been a blast. Had it out last weekend, ran fantastic. No problems. 5 hours worth on the lake. I had been having trouble with the wal mart battery in it & was able to acquire a gel battery for it. Put new battery in, and now no dice. Turns over fine, but the spark tester only flickers every once in a while. Any ideas? I've been told CDI, buit I'm Hoping to find a chaeper solution. Took the electrical box apart & everything looked ok. Nothing changed when I manipulated a bunch of the connections. HELP?!?!?!?

    Ok. It's still doing it. Found several corroded wires in & out of the e box. Guess I just need a replacement

    Ok. That sounds like a good idea. It actually did stick on me the other day. Thank you

    Update:
    Just spent the last 3 hours on the lake with no issues from my 900. Took the stop switch apart & cleaned it. Contacts were corroded slightly. Ordered another switch . My family thanks you.
