ATV won\'t start

Yesturday my dad, brother-in-law and I were at St. Anthony Sand Dunes yestuday. We were over at Choke Chery when i turned off my warrior to talk to my brother. After that i couldn't get it to start again. My dad had to tow me back to the road that goes around the dunes throught the sage brush. Luckily about 100 ft. later my quad started up again and i was able to ride it back. But i can't get to start anymore. My dad and i swapped spark plugs and his still started but when we tested my plug we couldn't get a spark. It will start up every once in a while and stay going but won't start consistantly. Anybody know what could be up? the only thing i can think of is a short between the spark and the start button. Thanks a ton for any help. [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Re: ATV won\'t start

Check all your battery connections. Could have something lose there.

Re: ATV won\'t start

Check your ignition box. It might need cleaned or maybe a new one. The wiring going to that might be broke or shorting out somewhere.

Re: ATV won\'t start

well it still turns over just won't get started, all the other electrics work. I can get it started pretty much once every morning. I asked a guy at a local shop and he said he thought i tmight be a engine coil. what do you all think?
