    Pro 1200 Electrical Help

    I was riding my 2000 pro 1200 for about 30 minutes on the bay when all of a sudden it died. Towed it back and checked for spark and nothing. I am getting 12 volts to the cdi. I checked the brown wire from cdi and ground and didnt get any voltage so I hooked up a 9volt to the brown stator and ground. Still no spark. What are the ohm specs for the stator and is there anywhere else I should look?

    I have went through the electrical test for the stator and it seems to check out ok. The one thing that has me baffled is I am not getting any voltage from the brown wire from the cdi. I hooked up the 9 volt battery and no spark. Other than the cdi being bad is there another componet that would stop voltage from the brown wire cdi?

    Confirm that you have over 10.6 volts on the Red/Purple wire that goes directly into the CDI module. The Black meter probe should be on the Black CDI wire for this test.

    Also make sure the Black/Yellow wire is not grounded. Black/Yellow is the wire used to shut down the engine using the lanyard or Stop switch.

    I have 11.5 volts going to the red purple cdi wire while cranking. I confirmed the black yellow is also not grounded. I also unplugged it.

    Well, if the stator checks out, and the CDI has solid power and is well grounded, then the CDI is the prime suspect.

    I have a spare cdi from a 98 slhx 1050. Can I use that just to see if I get any spark and verify the cdi is bad?

    Is that SLHX or SLXH?

    Only if it is an update ignition on the 1998 engine.

    The original ignitions in the pre-2000 engines are a different generation.

    Your 1200 motor will have a Gen III ignition.

    If your 1050 has the Update kit installed, then you can use it to test on your 1200. Just don't go riding around at speed, as the ignition advance curve is different.

    You can check the part number on the 1050 CDI to figure out if it is original or updated.

    I am so confused. I put a known good cdi in it and still can't get any voltage to leave the brown cdi wire. The cdi is properly powered and grounded. The battery is good and the black yellow wire is not grounded. The only thing that could actually stop power to the trigger coils is the black yellow grounding right? What am I missing?
