Voltage at coil

2008 Teryx
Anyone know what the voltage input at the coil should be? With the key on mine is right around 14.7 - 15 volts. I am pretty sure I am getting pretty weak spark.

Not sure of what voltage you should have at coil, but if you have an aftermarket cdi in it I would throw the stocker back in to see how she runs (assuming you are having a performance issue) if coil resistance is good, and I forgot what it's supposed to be but you can Google it, then chances are good you've got cdi that's toast (pretty common) and if you're running a stock one then now you've got an excuse to get some more power! Hope this helps, good luck.

Thanks

Thanks Brayla. It am not even able to get her to run. The spark is weak enough that I can let is shock me while I turn it over and it doesn't give much of a zing. I know...

I am getting fuel but it won't fire I am assuming because of the poor spark. Any idea's?????? Needing a little help!

Hey Brett, If your problem is in fact an ignition related one the two most common are coil and cdi, a bad stator is possible but ruling out the first two is where I would start. I don't know what you've already checked so forgive me if I insult your intelligence, the fact that it won't start steers me away from a coil problem both would have to fail at the same time or you would have a miss rather than a no start. Did you recently change plugs? Gap? Are the spark plug boots on correctly? Are the coils and cdi free of loose connections? There are ways of bench testing a cdi box with a meter but I've never done it, I have replaced 2 in the past just because my troubleshooting led to it (once on a kids quad and another on a motorcycle). Also keep in mind these carbs are deceiving! You may see fuel coming from the needles but if any vacuum lines are plugged or disconnected, or a pinhole in one of the diagrams they will be very fiesty! Bit again you would have to have issues with both carbs. The spark you see when you pull the plug and ground it against the head your not gonna see a huge spark doesn't take much so keep an open mind that you could have a fuel delivery problem instead/as well.
