you might want to start by checking your stator its really common with husabergs thats run sem ignition , if you check the owners doc in the electrical section it will tell you exactly how to test

you won't find a new stator or flywheel anywhere. the company that made them folded in 2008. your stator can be reconditioned by Kris or through myself/Bradford Ignitions.

this sounds like a real SEM stator breakdown. check the red to black from the stator and you'll have well less than 2,700 ohms. the green to black should be 165 and this is normally OK.

You can start by checking for fuel and spark? Pull the spark plug, is it wet? Has spark? Weird engine noises when cranking? Don't check for a bad stator if the plug is dry and it has spark....Need a little more info to give better direction

Re: 1999 fc 501 died at idle won't start again!!!!! HELP

Hi

About everything needs to be good to start a berg but when it good it starts very well

Some times it's a bit of a lot of things, but in my experience, if you have a good spark, the major major thing is the carb.

Start by raising the idle a bit, a lot of times it helps. Also a clean carb is necessary !

Good luck ... believe me I know the feeling !!

you can also verify "good" spark by removing the spark plug cap and holding the bare wire about 10mm from a cylinder head bolt and make sure it jumps that gap when cranking, they have been know to have a weak spark when checked but the spark isnt strong enough to fire under compression.....also dont hold the spark plug wire with your hands when you test it unless you like getting electricuted
