    no spark 2000 polaris slh

    I have a 2000 Polaris SLH. It's turning over but doesn't have spark, anyone have any suggestions? The ground is good and everything in the cdi box is getting power. Do I need a new solenoid? And if so does anyone know a good site to get parts for it? Only place I've really had any luck is eBay. The store where I originally purchased the ski won't even take it in to fix it because the guy said the parts are so hard to find because polaris stopped making them. Any and all suggestions are much appreciated.

    thanks guys

    Your dealer is full of it. Some parts are hard to find. Most are not. First thing to check is the strength of your battery. These ignition systems require a strong battery or they will not fire the plugs. Put a volt meter on the battery and check voltage while cranking. You need at least 10.6 volts while cranking or you will get no spark.

    When starting it I have my battery charge pack on it but I'll try again

    Dont do that. Battery only connected to the ski. You can burn out a CDI using a jump from a running vehicle or a battery charger. Try holdng the bilge button down while cranking and see if you get spark.

    My bilge pump has not worked for 5 years or so will that matter? Should I try and move the trim while I start it to see if it gets spark that way?

    Hold the bilge button down and crank the motor. The bilge button held down will allow you to operate the trim.
