Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
I also have a Yamaha 2001 XT 225N(C) that has the same motor and most parts interchangeable. '04 will turn over with start, but no spark at plug. I have tried: 1. checked fuses and traced out wiring to be sure there were no faults. Everything looks OK. 2. different spark plug that works in the '01. 3. installed new coil. 4. swapped CDI with the '01 ('01 ran fine with the CDI from the '04 model). 5. swapped Stators (complete crankcase covers swapped) between the '01 and '04. ('01 ran fine with the '04 stator. What am I missing here?
Double check that the motor ground is good,
that the kill switch is working proper.
neutral safety switch,
i have seen the magnets get damaged from rough play and not do there job also

It sounds to me like the repair shop has connected the ignition wire ( the wire going to the + side of the coil ) to the wrong switch terminal. Take a volt ohm meter and connect the ground wire to the negitive ( - ) side of the battery and expose the ignition switch terminals. With the switch in the OFF position check for volatge on all the terminals. Make note of any terminals showing a 12 volt reading. That is probably the feed line from your battery. Turn the switch to the ON or RUN position and check for a terminal other than the one which gave you a reading before. note and mark this terminal. Locate the coil. There are 2 thin ( 18 guage ) wires attached to the coil. One goes to the distributer and the other goes to the ignition switch. Isolate that wire and reattach it to the connection on the ignition switch you marked earlier...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, test for the presence / absence of below described voltages using an analog / needle type voltmeter when starting the bike:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have never heard of a stator preventing a motorcycle from starting. You need a professional, local, second opinion before you plunk down any bucks.
Unless that is, are you calling a magneto a stator? Does your motorcycle have a battery? If it has a battery, you probably do not have a magneto.

I would follow the fuel line all the way check the filter it should be inline and check the pump as well i would say its one of them two.
