You get this thing fixed yet? If so, it was probably the CDI.

Not yet. I've been out of town for a week and a half. Gonna get back after it this week.

Maybe American Airlines can give you some maintenance tips.

Finally got this thing to fire tonight. Long story longer...it was the stator (generator). I decided to roll the dice since it was down to that or the CDI. My rational was that I want to put a better light on it anyway and I would've had to buy a new stator for that eventually so I went with a high output one from Ricky Stator. Mine was making power and read 11 ohms but I learned that only one pole is for the ignition. Stoked I got it going again. It's nice having a dirt bike with a plate but that much electrical crap is semi-irritating.

The stator itself was plug and play but I'm not super stoked with the included voltage regulator/rectifier. It requires some extra wiring and is far from being a clean install. I like everything neat and perfect and the new one is definitely not. It added a run straight to the battery, bypassed the stock regulator/rectifier connector and dead ends a wire in the harness.

The Ricky Stator regulator will handle the extra current that his stator will make. It would have cooked the OEM regulator.
