Nice site. First time here hope you can help. On my 95 puma delux it just quit. No spark. How can I troubleshoot? I did disconnect the kill switch makes no difference. Is it CDI box or Coil or Stator? Thanks

You'll have to eliminate the basics first.......Throttle and kill switches, plugs, coil, plug caps, wiring....But from experience I would have to say it sounds like the stator, or kill switch.

the stator is behind the flywheel which is located behind the pull start housing.

Lead, follow, or get out of the way... my F7 doesn't wait for anybody, and it doesn't follow anyone.

Coils just quit sometimes too. You can get one for $35 on Dennis Kirk, plug it in and see if you have spark. I'd definitely try this before tearing out the stator... that project is a pain in the ass.

Check your ground strap/wire. Went on my 1995 T-cat took AC 6 weeks to figure it out.

Get a voltmeter and start at the begining before throwing parts at it. Go to the main harness coming from the stator and see if you have power there when you pull the rope. Do you have power from lighting coil? Are the plug caps well seated on the wires? Pull the cas off the wires and trim the end and reinstall with dialectric grease. Sometimes it is a simple thing and check the stuff that dosen't cost you anything first.
