I sheared the 6 bolts that hold the flywheel and starter clutch together. The stator was ruined and so was the flywheel due to a bolt head embedding itself in the flywheel. Bike ran very well up to the point of failure.
So I replaced the flywheel with a Trailtech +4 oz.
I replaced the stator with an ElectrexUSA stator bought from Rocky Mountain. The stator actually came with one connector that was not correct, so I spliced and soldered on the old connector.
I put the bike back together and it would not fire. I tested for spark by placing the plug against the cylinder and did not have a spark.
So, I began to troubleshoot the ignition problem as described in the manual as best I could with a multimeter. I replaced the battery, I replaced the killswitch and I replaced the ignition coil, all to no avail. Still no spark.
The light on the on/off switch is working. The two fuses are also still good, at least through visual inspection.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what could be happening? The next thing to replace is the CDI. I don't think I did anything wrong during the install of the flywheel or the stator. I think it'd be difficult for me to mount the pick-up backwards or anything like that.
Thanks for any advice.
