i have a 2000 mxz 700. tried to start my sled for the first time this year and it's a no go. it was fine when i put it away at the and of last year. problem is when i try and pull it over no lights come on, nothing, not the front,rear or dash lights. i have spark fuel and pressure. any ideas what this could be or where i should start looking? any help would be great. thanks

If it's getting spark, it should start regardless of the other electricals don't work. I believe the stator has two outputs, one for the motor and one for everything else.

Did you winterize it last spring? Bad gas? Bad plugs? Mouse nest in the airbox? Compression?

that thing have a battery in it? my 700 formula did wired things this weekend because the battery was flat out dead. my reverse beeper would not come on, the lights were dimmer and other odd annoying crap. put a new battery in, and we were good to go

yes if it is getting spark then it should run. make sure your plugs are good and you have gas in the lines. it needs to be running for the lights to work

I would suggest, get new spark plugs .. and possibly wires if needed.
Drain the tank as much as possible. Fill the tank with Premium Gas.
- Choke on full
- the sled should start even though it has electrical issues ...
- Also, check the Key and kill switch ..

- If your getting spark, it should run !!!!!

nope just put it on and bolt it up. if it won't go on all the way pull the rope out a lil till it will go on.
