    Default no spark still 98 skidoo formula3

    i have a 98 skidoo formula 3 700 ran fine then shut it off it wont start ive tested the following pulsar coil it has 231 ohms stator has 500+? not real sure exact cant remember ohms kill switch got continuity key switch have power going through it and tested dess switch it tested ok i ordered a new cdi box thinking it was it but still no spark does the new cdi box need to be matched with the dess before it will allow spark ? please any help will be apprecatied or am i missing something

    Dess does not need to be programed for spark. It will not allow the motor to run higher than an idle (no clutch engagement). I apologize but I do not have specs but I am fimiliar with these. This year has issues with the wiring harness. The harness tends to short out under the motor. I don't know if they affect one another but I have never made a harness repair with out replacing the the stator at the same time or shortly there after. The last one I did tested fine. You would start the sled up and it may run 5 minutes or 5 seconds and then loose spark. You could open the circuit (magneto side of the stator) and test right away and 1/2 of the time it would test fine. I have never replaced a CDI on a tripple. A few 670 twins but no tripples. I don't know what to tell you but make darn sure you have done the complete wiggle test on the stator before you buy anything else. Remeber that you are testing three component with in the stator (magneto side (spark), lighting side, and the trigger (tells when to spark)). Good Luck!!! I hate these problems.
