Ok, so I bought a 1987 warrior that looked like it was put into time capsule. Looks friggin mint. But there was no spark! So I figured out that I could swap out all the electronics to the 1998 model and have replacement part availability. 1987 parts are old stock only. $800 for an 87 cdi...nope!! So that's what I did. All the electronics are new, everything from front to back! From Yamaha wiring harness to Rick's motorsports stator. Yes I upgraded the magneto flywheel also. So I also grounded all safety switch wires and disabled plunger for parking brake. It has a new coil and battery. It has a spark but barely. I tested it with a spark tester with light bulb and it pulses but a low orange glow. Not bright like it should. It has a new battery. I checked and cleaned all grounds. The only old thing is the starter. It shot sparks out the case yesterday and it froze up. I tapped it with a srew driver and it worked again. Fluke says I'm only getting 6 volts on orange wire to coil. The stator reads 347ohms on white/red and 548ohms on blue/green. I think the starter is the only thing left that could be the issue. What's another $40 after all the othe parts...lol Any ideas or words of wisdom? Can a crappy 1987 starter that is going bad, draw so much current that it starves the cdi?
