That will most likely have a Kawai engine in it?? If so, you can definatly find pics online and see if those plugs are connected to anything. The probably are.

I'm a doo or die guy myself too!!

I'm pretty sure those are for the TPS system. Connect them and see what happens, because they're important.

there will be plugs on the carbs they plug into. they are a saftey thing. But i don't think they matter with the spark. is it a new CDI also?

Try the usual "unplug the 4 wire from the rest of the harness and jumper the black to brown wire" and see what happens.

The Stator would be the LAST thing to swap! No Kawi, Suzuki! The carb wires will have a matching plug in the harness! Find them and wire them together!
But to get spark just unplug the 4 way coming out of the engine! Test for spark! Then jump the brown and black on the engine side of the 4 way, Test for spark! This will bypass those wires and all the other kills as well!

You can bypass the TSS (throttle safety switch which are the wires going to your carbs) and the kill switch. The TPS switch is a throotle position switch and they didn't start using those unitl the 2000 3d ignitions. A bad TSS, kill switch, stator or ends of your spark plug wires can also cause the condition you talking about. More than likely since the sled has probably sat all year the carb is full of gunk but the aforementioned items can also be the cause.
