    my neighbors 1200 has no spark. I have never worked on a yamaha before. I need wiring diagram or someones experience with this problem. was told that it just died.

    Maybe the exhaust temp sensor at the base of the stinger pipe. If it goes bad, spark goes out on all 3 cylinders.

    Hey thanks

    I will look at it tomorrow.

    Is there a low oil or any other cutout sensors, besides the temp sensor, on this model that would prohibit spark as well

    could be the stop switch where the tether hooks up.

    Yea the safty kill switch looks good. I disconnected the temp switch connector and it gave a high temp beep as well as high temp signal on the dash, so not sure if it would be the temp switch. He has two of these skis and they both gave the same warning. anything else?

    if the battery has one or more bone dry cells, likely the cdi box...if battery is good check the ignition trigger coil continuity first. Find a service manual online..or previously posted diagrams clipped from the pdf file of the 1200 ignition system.
