    2001 Polaris Virage no spark ..help

    on my 2001 virage 700 I get no spark. in the black and white wire going to the ignition coil im getting .34 volts. I thing that's too low to get spark. already replaced the stator and the lr-505. must I suspect the CDI?

    You have done the diagnostics to confirm the CDI is getting enough voltage while cranking, and lanyard kill wire is not shorted to ground?

    Confirmed good grounding at CDI, LR module and ignition coils, all have zero ohms to the engine itself?

    Put your meter probes on the CDI wires, right where they attach to the terminal board; Red/Purple and Black.

    Crank engine. Voltage should jump up to OVER 10.6 volts. If not over 10.6 volts while cranking, the CDI will not deliver spark.

    As a test, press and hold the Bilge button. CDI voltage should jump up to battery voltage and stay there. While still holding the Bilge button, crank engine and monitor voltage to CDI. Must still be over 10.6 or no spark will occur.
