Loss of spark. I had this problem, took the spark plug out and held onto the end while kicking it over with my other hand, barely gave me a tingle. You check the reading coming out the stator with a multimeter. Unplug the Red, black, and green wires coming up from the stator to the ignition. Test the wire for resistance readings (ohms), by placing the red point from the multimeter on one wire and the black point on the other. You should get arount 1.7 KOhms between the red and red and black wires, 165 Ohms between Black and green (+ or - 20 Ohms), and 1.85 Kohms between Red and green. If your readings are significantly higher or lower, your stator is fried.

    edit to add that should have said "1.7 Kohms betwen the red and black wires".

Duz eneyone now if there is eney uthere stator that will fit my 1996 ktm 250 sx thanks

Does any one know if there is another stator that will fit my 96 KTM 250 sx Thanks, search online stator rewinds, and get a price for one to be re wound.
  • Examine each individual coil head on the stator for black marks, indicating burned wires. Carefully cut the protective rubber coating from each damaged coil with a utility knife.
  • 2 Study the direction the wire is wrapped around the coil head to determine if the top or bottom end of the wire is attached to positive or negative terminal clip. Remove the terminal clips from the base of the damaged coil heads with a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 3 Unwind the damaged wire from the stator head with your fingers. Clean the surface of the head with a piece of fine-grade steel wool and wipe the head clean with a lint-free cloth.
  • 4 Coil new copper wire, of the same gauge as the existing wire, around the cleaned stator heads in the same direction as the wire which was removed. Coil the wire tightly on the heads so there are no spaces or gaps between the wire wrappings, leaving 1-inch lengths of wire at the top and bottom of each head for attaching new terminal leads.
  • 5 Crimp new terminal leads to the ends of the new copper wire with a pair of pliers. Attach the terminal leads to the stator with the Phillips screwdriver.
  • 6 Set a multimeter to the DC "1X" or "ohm" setting. Touch the black meter probe to either of the main leads of the stator and then touch the red meter probe to the remaining main lead of the stator. Any reading on the meter confirms continuity of the wires, indicating the stator is functioning properly. If there is no reading on the meter, recheck the connections.
  • 7 Coat the new wire with liquid rubber and allow the rubber to set according to the product directions.

    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

    Can the stock stator on an 02 ktm 520 sx suport a

    Yes' I almost bought one last year that was street legal complete with turn signals tail light and headlight all running off the battery. The stock stator kept up with it all just fine. The only reason I didn't get the bike was because a Husqvarna SM 450 R was available.

    Weak oil in stator this ok?

    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
