RE: Older Bike Parts Interchange

Sorry Bruce no go there, prior to 2000 the stators were mounted to the case, not the cover. However I would suggest getting your stator rewound by Sparks. If you need a flywheel send me a PM I think I have a spare one. If you don't want to wait to get your stator rewound check with Dan at Motoxotica he was stocking some he'll want yours for a core. Also be very careful on that case welding. It is immperative that the case be ABSOLUTELY clean of all oil and contaminants. The cases should also be bolted together before welding from the outside (warpage problem otherwise) and weld on the inside too, just can't get that case hot! Good luck
Later

*UPDATE* I may be picking up an '05 FE550E. I won't know for sure for a few weeks. Until then, all work has ceased on the 470.

Well, the 550 deal didn't work out so back to the 470. I'm gonna go ahead and send Sparks my stator for the rewind. He looked at the pic of my flywheel and said as long as the magnets aren't coming loose (they aren't) it's probably ok. So, once I get the stator back, I'm going to at least see if I can here it run, and then pull it apart for the renewal process.

I hope going thru this 470 isn't gonna cost you more than it's worth. It sounds like you're a smart fella and have an idea of what you might be getting into. It may very well end up being a fantastic bike for you.

OK. I bought a used Sparks rewound stator from a member here that came off an '02 FE400. Installed it and still no spark.
Is there any way to check the CDI/coil assembly? I did a quick check of the doc but didn't see any info regarding any pass/fail tests. Do all the wires have to be connected to the kill switch and the Hi/Low ignition curve switch in order for it to spark? I didn't have them connected because I wasn't sure exactly where they went since the color coding seems to be off. Thanks guys.
Man, I really wanna here this thing run.

you really need to swop parts on and off the bike. i now do a coil (ignition module) exchange but proving that it's the coil is a bastard.

Thanks Taffy, that's kinda what I figured. I work at an auto and marine repair shop and when chasing ignition woes on later model outboards, they seem to give specs on everything except the cdi unit.

Logjump, thanks for the vote of confidence.

Brucifer,

Out of curiosity, when you were checking the spark and all, did you do that w/ the plug cap on and grounding out a plug, or w/ the cap off? Reason I ask is, the caps can go bad. If you haven't tried already, pull the cap off and see if you can get a spark to jump to the motor etc...

ck what kzoo says, but also connect the wires from the hi/lo start switch. switch blue/yel to harness blue/ white. orange to red/ white. blue to gray. black to brown.
and doublecheck the rest of the wiring
