  • New stator, won’t start

    Hi, I’m new to the site. I own a small shop in utah we just do basic stuff nothing to crazy. I’ve got a customers bike in and he replaced the stator and now the bike won’t start.

    fuel pump primes, spark plugs spark but it won’t start it fires every so often but never catches and most the time it’s a backfire sound and not a normal fire.

    could the new stator be pinned wrong or what am I missing?

    It should run even if hooked up wrong unless the owner messed with something else. Mine ran with a failed stator until it got me home and started every time when testing. What year is the bike? Carbed or FI?

      How long has it been sitting? Bad fuel turned to gel? When did it last run well? Have you load tested the battery?

        Did you pull out the old sparkplugs to check for spark or just check at the plug wire? if you didn't pull the plugs, pull the plugs and see if they are wet with fuel or carbon fouled. It will probably start if you clean them or if you install new ones.

        BTW

          Most importantly..... What brand stator?

          If it's not OEM junk it and replace with OEM.
