word from the wise !, don't trust ebay after market parts for one ?, and second..never rule out the smallest thing !. before I went tearing parts out and replacing ?, I would have started with the simple stuff, such as dirty kill switch ?, lose grounds ?, ignition switch not working right ?, wrapping on the c.d.i. in most cases shows you if the c.d.i. is bad ?. never start tossing parts at something until you have it narrowed down ! .Yeah what's weird is that it started fine with the original stator, but would not charge. So I'm thinking it's the pulse generator on this new stator. It is a cheaper stator from eBay (not ricks), so I'm thinking there might be a defect. I'm going to try putting the pulse generator from the old stator on the new one. I will do it today more than likely so I will keep you guys posted!
tells me ^^^, your c.d.i. is the part that needs replacing !..lol. ( sorry you had to learn this the hard way ? ), but you did learn !..lol.Gotta def agree on the ebay statement. After ripping this thing apart s few times I feel like I would have been better off getting a part that left me with little to no doubt haha. So after reading what you said, and before ripping it apart again, I hit the CDI box with a screwdriver, and it started lol. I don't even know what to think. I'll see how it goes after a few rides. Thanks for that.
