Purchased 3 months ago a Kandi 250fs and we only knew that when we ran VIN check on VIN plate. We did not know much about accept we call it our frankenstein. It had a no spark right off the bat, but we replaced or DC CDI, ignition coil, solenoid, trigger pickup, stator, plug, and a few other things. Pretty sure we have good grounds but for some reason there has to be something wrong somewhere in the wiring since we replaced all the obvious. So hoping someone can put us in the right direction we would greatly appreciate it. We are at our wits end. As we have to even ride this at all. We are not going to give up on it and Kandi has not been 100% for the coming with a whole lot. So what else can we try or test. Please be specific.
Thank you for your time

crazy thing is last night we were messing with it and maybe found d ground issue with relay or something not quite sure how it happened but we got spark and it started and ran, we turned off to button everything back up and low and behold wouldn't start and realized it went right back to a no spark..holy cow.

OK found out why it lost spark after we briefly had it, the new trigger pick up switch we put in, some how some way one of the wires got pinched when and broke in half..geesh, ordered new trigger but in mean time put old one back on and we have no spark again, we have 2 more DC cdi boxes coming also. Our question is with that trigger switch wire broke in half would that have burned up the cdi box some how with us trying to start it?

Yes, only because the company ran the VIN, because we didn't know anything about this buggy til we located VIN and came back to a 2005 Kandi 250fs confirmed by Kandi themselves and they said it is DC.

we have continuity of trigger coil, with the new one that was in and the wire got pinched and broke in half we were wondering if since the wire was cut and touching metal because it was caught inside the cover where trigger switch goes, we thought since broke wire was touching the metal cover that somehow by doing so it burned up cdi since we tried starting not knowing at the time of the trigger coil broke and touching bare metal, but thought might have fried cdi somehow.
But since put old coil in many the signal is too weak, even though it has continuity.
We have new cdi and trigger switch comin but we can fix broke wire on other switch and maybe try that again in mean time. Stumped.
