Hi ridge,

good move will be have the recoil replaced and have the seals around the stator cleaned / investigated / repaired.

here is a good section from Supermoto Junkies on SX525

2001 ktm 300 mxc not getting a spark what would cause not to get a spark

A few things,start simple disconnect the kill switch,remove the spark plug cap from the wire,check all your coneections from the stator to the cdi box to the coil.Still no spark your going to need a multi meter to check the stator and coil.If all this checks out to be good then it is your cdi box.A word of caution test these parts before replacing as they are not returnable and could get costly.A good shop could diagnose your problem in hour time.It may be money well spent if you do not understand your bikes ignition system.

Weak spark wont start

Sounds like stator pick up or stator its self is rusty causing a weak spark, (Just sand off) , or the coil is bad or spark plug wire is corroded

2002 520SX Igintion specs I have a 02 520SX The problem I'm having is that after riding the bike for an hr or so it just cuts out... turns off.. then will start 20mins. later, though it seems...

Hi, Anonymous nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

1996 KTM Duke quit running while riding

ok, your problem could be simple or could be quite involved. First thing to do would be to make sure its not a safety cut out i.e. kill switch on handle bar is set to off or is malfunctioning, side stand down while in gear, no neutral light. Also is the battery good?? A poor battery can cause the bike to have no spark as it can act as a resistor and not allow 12v to flow through the system thus preventing enough current for a spark. If its not that, hears where it can get tricky. It could be a number of other things i.e. If it has an immobilizer factory fitted or via an alarm system, Coil (which is usually not the case), Generator stator and pick ups or worse case a faulty CDI/ECU. You may want to get someone who knows about bikes to take a look. Good Luck

Hello, I have a problem with an intermittent &

sounds like you have a poor earth connection, possibly between the coil and the frame, try quickly rigging up a cable from the mounting point on the coil, to a bare metal part of the bike (or nagative battery terminal if available), and try again.
Hope this helps

New stator new pick up new coil but still have very weak spark

You have replaced all the ignition components,
How do you determine weak spark?
If you can see or hear a spark, with the plug in the cap and it earthed against the head, its probably ok.
It can be hard to see in daylight
other problems could include a faulty kill switch or water or a short in the ignition switch

Cannot start engine, poor spark. ignition coils ok.

hello, if you have weak fire probably, source coil or pickup in stator, or stator itself, if its not a real blue fire, bike will not run, if its sorta orange looking probably, stator, check for shorts in wires also..
