VIN# help to know what model I have
Hello all...I have an '06 Arctic Cat 400 4x4...but in going to order parts I'm in need of knowing exactly what model this machine is. I have to Owner's Manual, which is essentially useless as it has no model information on the cover or in the manual.
The VIN# is as follows: 4UF06ATV86T203228
This machine lost spark, which was due to the flywheel magnets. I replaced the flywheel & stator assemblies with NEW parts, and there is still no spark. I'm fully capable of diagnosing this IF I knew what model I have as I've come across (2) 400 cc engine possibilities in Factory Service manuals... Judging by what I've read, the CDI can possibly be knocked out when the flywheel magnets break free & damage the stator. I'll have to assume that a voltage spike occurs and takes the CID out as I need to know which manual to go off of to further diagnose this issue.
I'm seeking out prices on the CDI as that is likely the issue, and again, without knowing which model ATV this is, I'm sort of stuck.
In all of my years as a professional auto technician I've NEVER encountered an issue alike this where model information is no readily apparent. I've serviced/repaired everything from the M1A1 Abrams tank (ARMY, 11/89 - 11/05), every possible vehicle (car/truck/motorcycle/heavy truck), outboards & all sorts of power equipment... this is frustrating me as this should never be an issue....and chasing the model # is driving me crazy!
Thanks for any and all help!
