I have a friend with a 98 zr 600 efi. We were riding last year and his sled quit and we looked it over and there was no fuel but had good spark. And somebody mentioned that it could had been the stator. So he bought a new stator from dennis kirk and we put it in and now we have fuel and no spark. If someone could help me out it will be well appreciated.
I don't mean to rip on you, but if you had good spark, why did you replace the stator? You should have fixed the fuel system problem first. You should still look into why you weren't getting fuel the first time so you don't have a problem with that once you've got the ignition fixed. I'd say that right now you just need to check and double check the wiring and installation of the new stator you put in. IBS had that one right. Maybe even try for spark with the old one in? If you've got the new part installed right, it's time to start the process of elimination and look for other things in the ignition system.
Thanks guys for the replies. The reason why replaced the stator is we thought the fuel pump got its power from it. And all the connections are right there is different plugs on each end and they only go one way. Like I said before with the old stator we had spark and no fuel. And now the new stator that we put in has fuel and no spark. Do any of you guys no if the fuel pump runs off of the stator? I just dont understand when I switched stators I end up with different results. PLease reply back! p.s. this sled does not have a battery.
