    First let me start off thanks to everybody this place is amazing for beginners like me to get an idea of how to troubleshoot and understand My new to me blaster!!! I pressure washed it with the plastic off but really only did the tires and the foot rest which I think is called Nerf bars? Also this is my first ATV recently bought about five days ago when I got it it would start every time with the first kick until now I don't really know how to work on them but I've been learning I know my airbox or air filter didn't get wet and where the air hose connected to what I'm assuming is the carburetor I covered it with a glove and rubber band so did best or water wouldn't get in there! I was reading on here that maybe I got water in the exhaust ? Which is possible what should I do??? please help!!!THANKS

    Check ignition at plug tip properly grounded- good blue spark (20kv) not pink, not orange! Blue! Check for water shorted coil, kill switch, and last, check for disconnected wiring harness connectors due to high pressure washing. (See pdf. Files illustration of electrical harness. You will find one has come apart. Totally determine whether its fire or fuel one of these is missing.✌️Peace

    Use compressed air to blow out kill switch and other connectors going to coil and cdi unit, and coil wire plug cap

    I don't have an air compressor but I will go to the store and buy dust off or something similar do you think that would help in the same way ?
