    94 sl 750 - bad stator?

    Hello,
    I'm hoping someone on this forum who has experienced this issue can confirm my problem. I have a 94 SL 750 that was running good up and until yesterday, just died in water. No spark at all 3 plugs. Here's what I checked, following Beerdart's service manual (BTW, many thanks for this!!) :

    battery - new, 11.8V under cranking
    checked kill switch - unplugged metrered ok
    coil pack - check 3 in series (ok) and individually - all reading similar
    grounds -good

    Stator- Trigger coil ~220 ohms - ok
    Pulser Coil(blu/red to red/white) - Open, Nothing
    Exciter coil - (red/white to green/red) - Open, Nothing


    So from this it's safe to assume the stator (or wires to it) are toast? Just want to confirm before I tear motor out to inspect/replace. If anyone has a line on stators be sure to chime in as well

    Thank you!!

    Welcome

    Was the plastic battery cover in place?

    Is the cable bundle to the stator burned, or just the Black wire in that bundle?

    The plastic battery cover is in place. I didn't see any burned wires in the fuse box or nearby but I haven't followed the wires all the way back to the front either.

    Had a similar instance. Was just idleing while talking to a guy, and she just quit.

    It was the stator.

    According to your test results, it sounds as if the stator is bad, or you have a shorted wire.

    Trace the wires back to the stator, and if they're good, get another stator.

    Thanks for the replies. I will follow out the wires today and confirm. Would be nice if it's just a broken wire however I have my doubts. However worse case scenario would be pulling the motor out and finding out it wasn't the stator

    No need to remove the engine for swapping a stator.

    Well it turns out after following the wire it was frayed and chewed through, apparently by the drive shaft. Quite happy to find and fix Remedy was a some solder, shrink pipe and a couple zip ties. I think I had some ties there before, but I think I cut them out when I removed and rebuilt the carbs. Lesson learned.
