stator ?weak spark?

Hi from New Zealand,Iv recently purchased a 2001 550 fc,apparently its had the fe wiring loom put in it and electric start etc,anyhow the stator crapped itself on the old owner,he brought what is apparently a rewired stator from overseas and installed it,(it actually has 470 fe written on it with felt pen)but i am figuring this is the same unit as the 550?So the old owner has installed stator and tryed to get the bike going,(it hasnt been run for 12 months,but was running when stator stuffed out)but no luck,now Im the lucky owner(maybe)so iv had a look over everything,looks like it should,have a very weak spark and the bike wont kick over,decided to jump start it down the hill and it fired up,idoling a little high,but other than that sounded nice,no splutters or coughs,let it warm up a little and went for a short burst,shut it off and still couldnt kick it over,Im a little concerned that the problem may be bigger than I thought,dos anybody have any advice?cant wait to hit the trails on this machine!!cheers

Re: stator ?weak spark?

Hi

You can have one FE or FC (I call it half stator) stator, check the wires that come out of it. And if you have one FC stator check if you have the spacer inside, if not can be the problem.

Apart from everything that can be worn in your bike, the stator is part of the problem since you can jump start it and not start by kick. Its a usual problem since the stator has a very weak spark when you kick it (low revs) and when you can make higher revs (jump start) the stator starts to gain more power.

Go to owners docs and check the resistances of the stator and go from there.

Zaga just had a spacer off me so he can supply dimensions and a photo. thanks for volunteering Zaga!

Re: stator ?weak spark?

Oh,this will sound silly,but i forgot to mention that the stator has no marks on it,so cannot set the timing when at tdc,any ideas?its just set up as close to what i imagine it would be according to where the wires sit.

The flywheel has the marks on it. The stator has none. The marks line up with the upper stator cover bolt hole. There is a lot of info in "the owners doc" . All the stators should be interchangeable from 01-03. Possibly earlier.

Hi Hus,

From looking at the photos the stator you have is not a 1999 / 2003, I can tell this from being able to see the lighting coils at the back of the stator, plus there is no timing mark on the back. Also so the sealing grommet looks to be round not elongated like it should be for the year in question.
This type of stator was designed to be fitted to the engine not the cover.

The resistance figures you will see on this stator is Black/ Red 1750 and Black/Green 23 Ohms.

Regards

Sparks.

Re: stator ?weak spark?

Steve beat me too it.

that is a stator from 1997 or before putting out the wrong ampage and therefore unable to do its job right.

I've dozens of those little grommets. not sure I want to swop a Mk1 for a Mk3 but whether you use Sparks or I to get it done it CAN be converted and upgraded at the same time.

as far as Berger's photo goes well i would say that the standard flywheel marks were superceded about 8 years ago but news travels real slow to Arizona. hopefully you'll see photos of a flywheel with a white line tipp-ex'd on it in the Doc and THAT is what you need.

you do have the deep - FE flywheel BTW.

Re: stator ?weak spark?

Yes your stator is the first one, I'm sure, no good for you !

And your flywheel with very little health !!!

Just maybe, you shoud think of buying a new set, it comes fly and stator together, .. not sheap !

Good luck
