Customer Question

I gave a Suzuki king quad 2001 and it is not firing. I changed out the coil but it was a used one. It has a new battery so it's turning over just fine. How can I tell if it is the CDI or something else. I also bought 2 new plugs and tried them both. Any help would be great. Thanks,Clay

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with how many and what are the wire colors to/from the CDI.

Still, proposed preliminary check for (if have not been done):

  • • pulsating low voltage from the pulser coil to the CDI when attempting to start;
  • • pulsating high voltage from the CDI to the ignition coil also when attempting to start.

The above checks would be with the use of a multi-meter.
