Last night I tried starting my sled but it wouldn't start. From the sounds of it, it's either not getting fuel or it's not getting a spark. I looked at the plugs and they looked like they were getting fuel. Put new plugs in still not starting.

Last week Sunday I had the sled out, we stopped for lunch (20 mins or so) after 25-30 mile ride, went to start her back up and no luck. Put a new set up plugs in and she started on the first pull. Rode a bit again no problems, stopped for another break (another 20 mins or so). When to start and again, no luck. Pulled the plugs out, blew them off, heatedthem with a lighter to burn off any gas and put them back in. Evenutally she started back up after about 10 pulls.

The sled has been sitting for one week, with 3/4 tank of premium gas. Would the gas go bad in a week?

Has there been any issues with the 99ZREFI's?

Tonight when I get home I'm going to check for sparks from the plugs. Could the plugs wires just need replacing?

If there are no sparks, I think I'll have to take it in to the dealer because I'm out of ideas.

I have about 3400 miles on the sled.

I had my fingers crossed it wasn't the stator, but it was :(

Dealer wanted $666.95 for parts and labor.

Order one from a buddy, who knows a buddy, who can get me a new one for $425.

Going to put it in myself and save myself $241.95 :)

For what it's worth, make sure you do not put a re-wound stator in your sled. I have tried 3 different rebuilders and 6 different stators on 3 different sleds and only one lasted more than 400 miles - 3 never worked at all.
It sucks, but I would only put a factory part in that sled or you are asking for trouble.
The cheapest I have found factory replacements for is $510.00

I had 2 stators rewound without any problems....I think the key is to drill 6 or 7 holes in the flywheel housing to keep air circlulating around the stator :rolleyes:
