The stator can be screwed and give good readings...
Try this... disconnect your main wire harness from the stator (2 yellow and brown and black) plug... make a jumper between the brown and black on the stator connector... your motor will run BUT you will not be able to shut it off with any switches!!!! so if your throttle sticks ... take it for a ride and if the problem goes away, its not the stator, some other wire problem... but if it still does it, its the stator... its probably cutting out when it gets hot... mine did the same thing, it tested fine cold....

Sled: 98 t-cat. 96 zrt 1000,
I tried the jumper on my 98 t-cat today It still won't start?Tried another cdi and still nothing?Now i pulled my motor to search for a wire problem in the harness.I'm still leaning toward the stator though.I took ii in to a local shop he pulled the stator bead blasted it put it back together fired right up ran for a while turned it off no spark.It thought it was the cdi but no luck? $86.00 to basically to tell me I have a problem,?Any suggestions if there is nothing wrong w/ the harness.?

Unplug your stator take an ohm meter put red lead to green wire and black to black -ohms should be between 20.6 and 30.8 ... then put red lead to white wire and black to green ohms should read 383-575 .... that should tell you if the stator is good or bad. I got the specs compliments of WFO racing.


If you know the stator is bad, send it out to RM stator to get rebuilt. quality parts and service and they garauntee it. Had mine rebuilt middle of this season.. I dont know why anyone would spend over $500 to buy a new one when we have these guys around! look em up at rmstator.com

when my stator went it still ohmed around 25 and 477... on a cold read... sled run fine until it got hot and started cutting out... couldnt get the revs past 3-5000... thats why its deceiving sometimes when you ohm read them... thats why its easier just to bypass all switches and run the sled (short rip to heat it up) to verify the stator is working...

it would'nt run even when I bypassed the switches.?The local shop tested the stator said it was good it was on a cold read though.If it won't start w/ the switches bypassed it has to be the stator correct?
