Symptoms of a bad stator
Chasing down issues on my 04 250. Replaced the CDI, Volt reg and magneto(coil), due to shorting out my wire harness. It would start right up, but would not rev up past idle. Got to the point where it just would not run at all, still had spark. Figured it was carb related, cleaned carb and one jet was plugged. Put it back together, would start and idle fine, but as soon as I gave gas it would sputter and die. Just curious, what role the stator plays other charging the battery, running accessories? When running the battery showing 14+ volts, so it seems to be putting out voltage. Any ideas.
