ok, i called the dealer and they told me theres no way to test a CDI box, so i dont know what to do...I guess you have to go through process of elimination with EVERYTHING else, before you can assume it's the CDI box. So the coil is out of te question, but what about the stator? If I just can't figure it out, i will PM you, and figure out when I can have you look at it. Thanks!

Usually if when you pull it over hard enough and the headlight comes on momentarily the stator is good. Try that first. In all my years of wrenching on sleds, I've done dozens of CDI's, and 1 stator.

yea, when i hold the wires coming out of the CDI to one side, it sparks, but when i hold them to the other side, it doesn't. So i think that's the problem. I ordered a new CDI off of ebay for 30 bucks, so hopefully i'm back in business. Thanks for the help. Do you know where I can get the two caps that go over the hinges for the hood, up front? The previous owner lost them, so Id like to find new ones. Thanks.

I think i found it, but im not sure if it is what im looking for because i dont have one, so i dont know what it looks like. Is it two seperate caps? Or is it one long think, covering both hinges and everything in between?

Im looking to buy some ski skins, now. I measured them and they are 5.5x41. When I go to look at them, they only come in 4.5x40.5 and 5.5x40.5. im guessing i want the 5.5x40.5, but its half an inch under what mine measure. Is that alright? Thanks.

eBay has manuals cheap. Look for the Clymer brand first. Or get a service manual on CD. Why do you want to drain all the fluids?

The sled sat in a shed for awhile and I have no clue how long it has been, since the guy changed anything, and I wated to switch the oil to synthetic and just put some new gas in it, if it's easy.
