not a bad idea.....^
stators are difficult to diagnose....... most of the symptoms (other than no spark at all) relate to fuel issues... such as cutting out, hard starting, etc.... or, they work great when cold, but as they warm up the bike dies... then starts up again when bike is cold....
bottom line...if your suffering from an electrical misfire of any type... weak spark, no spark, mistimed spark, it is the STATOR 99% of the time....
for me it has been 100% of the time....and I have replaced stators in both of my trx250r's and my 450r..... and two of my boyz cr80's....my CR250R is about the only machine that is still working on the stock stator.....
they fail quite often....
