Hello i've checked the sticky posts and done a search and was not able to find any info pertaining to my problem. I have a 2011 wr 450 with a Baja designs dual sport kit. After installing my DS kit everything worked great for about 6 months then all of the sudden my bike cranks but wont fire. While troubleshooting i find the fuse on the baja designs harness is blown. I replace it and the bike still wont start. I pulled the plug and no spark. I completely scowered the wiring system and have found no damage of any sort that may be causing a short. I removed the BD DS rectifier and pluged in the stock unit and when I crank the bike no spark but as soon as i let off the starter switch i get one good hot spark from the plug. I pluged in the BD rectifier back in and dont get anything at all. What does this mean? At this point i just feel like striping out all of the BD DS parts and returning my bike to stock! Can I run the stock parts and rectifier with the modified stator? Or do i need to replace the stator with a new untampered oem unit? PLEASE HELP!

Check the kill switch. Also, the power switch on the right bar must be on, so confirm (with a meter) it is powering the switched leg on the BD harness.
