93 xlt 580 no spark?

I replaced the stator and it still doesnt have spark. What could be the reason for no spark? What could I test or replace?

What about the coil? Look at all wires and connections

Here's a link to the Polaris website. It shows diagrams of your sled. From your description, it sounds like you are talking about the voltage regulator, which won't have anything to do with spark in the plugs; those two systems are separate.

This might sound dumb but I did the same thing last night when rebuilding my sled, so if you haven't eliminate the kill switch, key switch and throttle positioning sensors as variables.

Just disconnect everything going to that block your throttle and kill switch is on. Id leave your key hooked up so you have something to turn it off just in case. And then disconnect the key switch and leave just the kill switch hooked up to test the key switch.

At this point I would seriously start looking at the cdi box, getting it checked out or swapping it out with another one if possible just to see. You've done everything right so far and still come up empty and ppl say cdi's either work or they dont. I'd my self would de looking into that because you never know and just to be able to say you already did that and move to the next thing.

I agree C.D.I.s tend to work till they warm up and then cause the sled to run like junk. If you've done everything else that's all there's left to do.
