Default 1996 cr250 electrical issue

     

I just bought a 96 cr250 cheap and I knew it had some issues. This one I can't figure out. It has no spark. So far this is what I have done to check this. Started with the spark plug. got a new one. checked the resistance on the coil. It is good. Checked the kill switch operation and resistance. It is good. Checked the ignition generator. It is good. Checked the excitor coil. The resistance on this is 40 to 45. service manual says it should be 120-220. So... my question is, Am i missing anything?? before i go spend a good chunk of change on a stator, I want to make sure i covered all my bases. I did check all the connections and wires too. Thanks for your help. I love this website. Lots of useful info. Never had this back in the 80's when I used to ride.

Mike

Sounds like a stator issue, probably the pulsar coil. You have narrowed it down to that, and it is not generating enough spark per your manual.

sounds like you found it. almost all the components suffer and fail prematurely if you have not properly cleaned and scraped your grouding spots. Not that it would help your current parts, but make sure they are scraped clean before you run the new or reconditioned ones.

thanks guys. Wanted to make sure that I was on the right track before spending $150 plus for a part that I might not need. Those things new at the dealer is $600. Crazy. More than I paid for the bike.

Got a new(used) stator and cleaned up everything. Installed it and i know have spark. Just waiting on a water pump rebuild kit now cuz I had the milkshake in the case. I'll post a pic when I get it done as for now it is still in pieces.

Thanks
