    Engine cranks - but no spark

    Hi Guys,
    Looking for a little advise before I start diagnosing. I was @ the lake with my 2000 GP1200R running good, turned it off after about a 45 minute run. The engine cranks over but there is not any dash display nor spark. Fuses are good and I have power to the fuses. Does this sound like a CDI Issue? I have the Advent CDI in it.

    Probably CDI or gauges (both commonly fail).

    If you have a stock CDI try it first.

    With electrical problems the easiest way to disgnose things is to simply start swapping out components. Ideally start swapping components between 2 skis. Though there are some tests you can do that are listed in the shop manual.

    I have all of the electrical components available for sale. (all used but in good working order) Troubleshotting electrical problems can be a real pain in the but and it can be expensive if you have to buy new components to do the testing with. I would sell any of these components on the basis that whatever you didn't need to keep could be returned.

    Well it was the Aftermarket Advent CDI! put the stock unit back in and it runs.

    Should I just keep running the stock unit?

    what do you have done to the ski?

    I would still send it in to Advent for repair...
