Question

Well another new guy with a question. From reading through the forum I'm thinking I have a bad stator. My sled runs great, but no lights or guages. This is my first Skidoo, and I haven't torn into it yet at all. Is it possible to replace just the lighting part of the stator or am I stuck buying the whole assembly? The microfiche sites don't show a seperate breakdown for this, but I was wondering if it has been done by anyone. I have checked the wiring harness also and there are no bad spots. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

All the sleds I have ever torn into have had replaceable coils on the stator plate check dennis kirk (or parts unlimited through a dealer) they should list seperate internal coils for your sled. what year and model is it? if you can't find out e-mail me and I can check a local salvage yard that usually can find me anything i need.
you can find dennis kirk on the web but I have not had the best of luck with their web site parts finder hoodad.

ride em hard and put em away wet

Well I guess that takes me to another question. Where do I find the code, date, ect. to find out when the motor was manufactured? I'll try and make a long story short. I bought the sled used, it has an 809 from a Crazy Mountain Extreme in a 95 Formula S chassis. The motor has maybe 200 miles on it now, it had just been rebuilt prior to my buying it. As the guy that sold the sled has moved, and stupid me forgot to get the motor year(I was too busy drooling over the power I guess). I'm stumped. I found 809s in parts pages and could never find specific info. So here I am.

Cool

My friend just had his stator replaced on his 2000 MXZ 600.
My 1999 MXZ 600 stator went last year. The dealer were we bought our sleds at said that they replace lots of stators.
My friend called Ski-Doo and they said that they do not have a problem!!!
He asked the lady if she really works for Ski-Doo , She didnt find the humor..
He asked her if anyone there ever read any of the magazines that say the stator is the weekest link.
She said that they have not heard that.
He said again , you do work for Ski-Doo ?, right..
Still not funny.
If the stator gives me trouble on my 02 MXZ X 800 I be goin to polaris.

Isn't there a fuse that may be blown? Most units have curcuits protected by a fuse or fuseable link. Before pulling out the stator, check the resistance of its windings. Easily done at the mag side by unplugging the wiring and using an ohm meter. What about your rectifier? Just some places to look.

I would try a voltage regulator first. I had a 98 fz 583 with the same problem. It was the reg that was bad. Sounds crazy but try it first.

Check your wires and make sure they didn't rub through on *bracket or the frame. *I just went through this on my 440. *I lost my lights and gauges. *My wires rubbed through where they were zip-tied to the oil tank. *Fixed the wires and its been fine.

Almost 100% positive it is the voltage regulator. * If it was the stator it would probably just quit all at once. *I think you can bank on the voltage regulator. * Let us know.

Why Jonny Ringo! You look as though somebody just walked over your grave.
