    65U with weak spark

    65U or GP1200 99 engine has new plugs and caps and engine is fresh never been run but winds over and spark is very very weak? Any ideas on this?? It hinted a start but the plugs just wet up instant you wind.

    Cheers for looking

    I agree Battery first, if it is not this then it is the stator these are notorious for going bad

    The battery is new and cranks it over like mad.
    Do the stators go bad for any reason or just loose there grunt over time. The engine is in an exciter which has 130 hours on it but I rebuilt the engine completely as someone in Japan had put car oil in the 2 stroke res.

    How does it run is the weak spark an issue where it wont run on the top end or the low end ?
    The gp spark isnt the brightest spark I ever saw MSD spark was.
