Hello good people , i have a 2002 660 raptor that i am trying to run just a toggle (as the key switch ) , and a push button for start , eliminated run/stop switch , i am starting from toggle switch and working my way back to CDI I read on here if I wanted to use the toggle switch as a key switch and run stop switch I could connect the red and white and black and red wires together where do I join them do I join them coming out of the CDI since I do not have a to ignition anymore any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

All you need is your toggle switch between red (from the fuse) to red/black (12V to CDI).

The reason there's both the key and run/stop switch is so you can stop the engine without turning lights off... If you want, you can take a second toggle from red to the brown wire where the key switch was. This will allow you to control other functions separately from engine running.

Have you downloaded the manual from this forum? Wiring diagram is last page.

Welcome to the forum!

You're going to need the stator to CDI wires, the CDI to solenoid wires, the start button and wire, in addition to the fan circuit - breaker, thermo switch and fan... and orange from CDI to coil (for spark) and whites from stator to rectifier/regulator (if you want the battery to charge). THis should let you get spark, but not necessarily let the start button make the quad start - you can short across the solenoid's large lugs to test, if necessary.

If you don't have the neutral switch connected you'll at least need to ground the black/yellow wire (from the clutch switch) so the CDI will let you start the quad).

Measure voltage at the yellow/black at the solenoid (once you get the black/yellow grounded and 12V on the red/black). It should be 12V BOTH before and while the start button is pressed. If it drops to near 0V when the button is pressed, the CDI is damaged and I'll have to tell you how to work around that problem.

I will be able to complete everything that is needed to atleast crank her up other then having the push button with wire from factory , i do have a push button ( no wires included ) that i picked up from auto zone type place .only other issue will be locating the fan motor circuit breaker and how do i know if the blk/yellow neutral wire is grounded ?

You connect it to the battery negative terminal and it is the clutch switch wire - neutral is light blue.

the fan breaker is a self resetting module and you just follow the wires - colors as defined in the wiring diagram ... it's inline.

That black CDI wire needs to be grounded... then something might work!

You MUST download the manual (free at top of 660 maintenance section)
and learn the wiring diagram on its last page! We can't do all your homework for you.

Im sorry. By all means i am doing my homework to the best of my knowledge , its really to follow a diagram when i dont have the key switch , run/stop switch , any lights. I have a toggle as the key/run/stop switch and a push button start that i bought . I am having trouble on where to run the wires that i dont have , i need to know how to wire what i do have . And trust me i do appreciate all your help, i havent been able to ride in moths now and i am just frustrated that i cant get her running

So, have you grounded the black CDI wire?

Well after looking again it seems someone had jacked with the wiring before me because the closest thing i have to a black wire coming from CDI (SO I CAN GROUND IT ) is black with green circles around it

Is it coming from the correct location on the correct CDI connector? I doubt it's been messed with - YOU said it was black in #12...
