I'd be looking at the exciter coil on the stator first berg, 90% of electrical problems stem from it going bad. Failing that then test your coil and pickup, then the cdi. Cdi's are normally very good in Hondas.

Agree with xr6, that stator has 2 sets of winding, one for lights, different one for ignition. So headlights working doesn't indicated stator is still good. I do have a spare cdi if you decide that's it though. David

I got mine from Ricky Stator , I had an initial problem with no headlights, apparently I shorted it out installing, no idea how, but he sent me a replacement and works well.

There was an Australian site that detailed a home-brew rewind of the ignition part of the stator. Oh wait, here it is. It even has the resistance specs so you can diagnose if you think yours is at fault. Let us know how it works out.

:cry:
