Question no spark

Hi I have a 1992 Arctic Cat 580EXT and it has no spark. I,ve un plug'd ignition switch jump'd the switchand still nothing. I think it's the coil but I've been told it could be the CDI box to . Oh I also put new spark plugs in and checked that they have good contact. M y question is what do I do ?

If I remember right, you have to leave the ignition switch open on an Arctic Cat to run it, then you short it out to shut it off.

Also, there are ohm specs for the coil that should help to test that. I let my manual go when I sold my sled, so I'm unsure of the particulars.

I don't usually work on sleds, but I have a buddy that does. He has all kinds of complaints like this & he says most are due the the throttle switch. It's there to kill the engine if the throttle freezes. If you're cable is sticky, fix the cable, If it's O.K, locate & check the throttle switch. Good Luck, Roger
