As title says. I'm having issues with my 88 converted to 91 harness. I've been having issues with no spark. Come to realize that if coil is unhooked I get spark through orange wire but once hooked up it doesn't. Coil is new and I have swapped with a known good coil. I also found out tonight that if coil isn't bolted to the chassis the voltage will stay where before, the minute I plugged orange wire in, it would cancel the signal and when I would unhook it I would get nothing. If I plugged it in and then unplugged it without cranking it still would give me voltage. So I'm wondering if I'm having issues with a wire being grounded that isn't supposed to be. I say that since it seems to be normal to get continuity to ground when the coil is hooked up since my other atv does the same. Backstory: every single electrical part on the ATV besides the neutral relay(bypassed to see if it was faulty, it's not), the voltage regulator(some have said unplug it and it will start, it didn't), and the reverse switch (some have said to ground green/white wire out but mine has around 5v going through it so I unhooked it since people say that's bypassing it). Every other electrical component is brand new including harness and cdi. I just have no clue why the spark gets cancelled and won't send again if coil is bolted down and grounded out. It's made me really regret spending all the money I have when I could've got the same result leaving it alone and cob knobbed together from previous owner. Hoping someone can point me in direction of something that labels the grounds of the harness or someone who would have an idea on it. Also the only wires not hooked up which don't have a place to go is a green/black which is coming off ground side of reverse light, and a black ground. Both of which are in the stator plug area of the loom. Tying green/black to the chassis lights up reverse light so it seems to need to go to a switch of some kind. The black ground I'm not sure of or if it's important. If anybody has any suggestions besides going through everything and just trying to hook things up how they should be id appreciate it. I've gone through everything. Made sure all plugs are good. Made sure everything is hooked to right spots and wires match to each side. I just think there's a wire tied in somewhere in the loom that shouldn't be.
