Thanks, I was afraid of losing power to the spark. At this point I have nothing to lose! Do I need to change the CDI to a yz? Electrex will not answer my email after I purchased their stator. hmmm got my money!
Shouldn't need to change the CDI box, but you may need to be a bit "creative" in connecting it...if I understand it right, the electrolux stator has a pulse coil like the stock stator, and a separate 35W DC lighting coil. Not sure if the ground is floated on that or not...regardless, the pulse coil connection should be the same. What does the Electrolux coil use for a regulator...their own?

What quit on the 400 and 426 ignitions? Pulse? Lighting? How long did they work? That many fails I would look at EVERYTHING to be sure there isn't something on your bike that is causing damage. If the coil wires aren't cut or the insullation damaged, there's really not much that can go wrong with them...I think Baja Designs or Ricky Stator can rewind your coils for you if that's the problem.
They told me all I needed was their stator & everything else is compatable. I am using a regulator/rectifier because I am using a battery. When I told them that the stock WR flywheel did not work with their stator they did not write me back. I guess I will use a YZ flywheel and hope all else will work. This has been a nightmare trying to get my lights to work. I have a wr400 stator that quit & the 426 that quit & bought this other 426 stator off ebay which the ignition works but not the yellow lighting wire. Cant find this part or have it rewound. Very uncool.
Are you using a stock Regulator? Have you floated the ground on the lighting coil?
