So i have this sportsman that I just cannot figure out. It ran when I bought it, then it would only run intermittent. Someone told me it was the CDI box so I bought a new one. Ran the same way. Now it won't run at all. I have checked the coil, plug cap, replaced the spark plug, checked the plug wire. All tested fine. I don't think I have the right multi meter to test the exciter and pulse coils, or I'm doing it wrong. I'm pretty pissed at this point. Anyone have any suggestions for me? Thanks
