Hello all,

I am new to the ATV world. In fact I am borrowing one and had the worst situation possible develop. A friend sent me to his cabin (lives elsewhere) to get his ATV to borrow for plowing my driveway. Before leaving his place, I jumped the machine with my truck (bad idea???) and plowed his driveway. There was no battery in the ATV so cables went directly to leads.

Then onto the trailer and 10 miles to my place. Upon arrival, it stopped starting. It turns over and has compression. The NEW sparkplug is wet each time, so it's getting fuel but there is NO SPARK.

Where should I start? I am not a mechanic, and there are none nearby. CDI? Voltage regulator? magneto? I realize that jump starting the machine that way was probably a bad idea, so no need to remind me of that :)

Any help would be great!
