    Default '96 Skandic Ignition

    My Skandic died the other night on the trail. I was close to home and just towed it home. It had gas, compression, but apparently no spark (at either plug)..

    When it died, it died instantly, no sputtering or anything...

    Last winter i had the high beam burn out, this year the low beam, then I noticed the handwarmers seemed way too hot...but didnt do anything about it...I hardly ride this machine...cause I own a bravo...

    Anyway, I'm assuming the ignition coil is bad...do these machines have a voltage regulator or something similar that would fry a coil? I hate to put in a new coil and have it burn up again...

    Thanks for any input..

    A burned out regulator will not affect the ignition. Double check the tether is on or disabled and same with the key. No spark could mean coil/module or the stator gave out. The stator can be checked as well as the coil windings in the module. The ignition coil is part of the module on this machine.

    Thanks Mod, I'll feel pretty dumb if the tether popped loose or the ignition switch is off!!

    I'll mess with it tonight hopefully...
