There is ZERO spark or current through the plug wire. I've checked the plug, replaced it, and tested it - and both the old and the new work fine in another motor. I hooked up a volt meter and set it to 500 VAC after trying several other things, and there was no voltage going through the plug wire (I connected one end of the meter to the plug wire, and the other to ground on the engine). There is resistance through the plug wire to ground, so the coil seems ok. The kill switch is also fine, but I tried disconnecting it anyway with no result. I'm not really sure how to test the stator or the CDI unit. There are 4 wires coming out of the stator, 2 of which (a green and a red, both separate) are a CLOSED circuit, with no resistance (reads 1ohm). All of them are insulated from ground, so no ohms from them to ground.

As a note, I rode this bike with NO PROBLEMS (or crashes lol) less than 24 hours before this happened. I actually rode it into the back of my truck, took it home, unloaded it, and went to start it the next day. After 30 mins of pushing it down my driveway, I checked for spark - nothing. So somehow, what ever it is completely failed within 24 hours of sitting in a garage.

Any ideas what the problem could be? Need it fixed in 2 weeks!!! How do I really test the stator or CDI? The engine was rebuilt a month ago due to a main rod bearing failure, has new top and bottom end now, about 8 hours on it.

:) :D :worthy: :ride: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Here is the wiring diagram:

Here are some tables of values you can check:

I would also re-seat all the connectors and make sure there is continuity on all of the wires

Thanks guys... after doing some of the tests marzbar67 gave me, it seems to be a bad stator. It's a completely open (none conductive) circuit where it should only have 100-200 ohms resistance. Meter showed no reading whatsoever. I did not check the CDI but everything else showed fine. Time for a new stator...

Hey guys, can anyone tell me how to remove the magneto from the bike??? I pulled the cover and removed the two screws holding the stator, but I can't figure out how to get the "key" out to remove it
Is there a specific tool to pull this out???
Appreciate your help!!!!

You have to get a puller from your local bike shop. They are about $15.00. The threads in the magneto are left handed.

Thanks FPMXer!!! I'll head to the dealership tomorrow!!!
BTW, I got a little carried away with a hammer (my buddy said it should come out by pounding it) and broke a small piece of the top of the case :) oh well, more character for my RM :lol:

Thanks Marzbar, your post just helped me figure out the same problem. I have a bad stator too. Now I can get this beast fixed!
