    dont remember but the dealer sayed that the rev limiter was fried so they fixed it then i took it out again and it happened again. so can the rev limiter be replaced or do you have to change the mpem

    If this is a "Stock" machine there is no "Rev Limiter" as you/the dealer calls it. You need to find out exactly what part was replaced.
    The Revs. in this model are "limited" internally by the MPEM which cost over $7oo.oo so if that's the problem and the dealer replaced it w/o getting to the root cause and the same problem recurred then you need to take it back to the dealer.

    If that's *not* the problem then my guess with the limited info. you give would be:

    1) Bad Voltage Rectifier / Regulator Module
    2) Bad DESS Post (Internal Reed Switch)
    3) Damaged Inductive Ignition Sensor (Magneto area)
    4) Metal frags (from Inductive Sensor Bracket) in the Mag. area
    5) Short in the wiring harness (either Main harness or Magneto Harness)
    6) Dealer is giving you a line of BS and doesn't have a clue except how to lighten your wallet
    while shotgunning a difficult/elusive problem

    +1 sounds like a stator or mpem short to me...pull the front covers off the motors and check it out. if thats not it i would find a used mpem. there are a few clean salvage yards out there that may have one. if you do need an mpem contact member "the wayniac' hes got all sorts of pre 99 doo parts for a fair price. also search user "disgruntled cowboy" he posted a link to a salvage yard in MI that has damn near everything.
