96 sl700 electrical
I came across a weird problem working on a 96 sl700. The common no spark issue plagues this ski so went to troubleshooting. stator checks out, went to check voltage while cranking on the brown wire coming from the cdi and it has a steady 12 volts on it all the time. This has the original ignition in it and I've heard the update kits for this ski are no longer available.

First disconnect the battery positive cable (be careful not to short to anything else). Also, with the original ignition system, remove the thin black wire from the battery negative before checking the other ground wiring.
Then make very sure the Black stator wire is zero ohms from engine block to electrical box grounds, and check all electrical box grounds. Especially the CDI grounding.
The Ignition Update Kits were in short supply, but apparently are now back on the shelves.
AND, once you have verified that all grounds are correct, make sure the battery is healthy. Must deliver over 10.6 volts while cranking the engine, or you will not have spark.

I checked the stator ground to engine block 0 ohms. Went through the other grounds and checked out ok. Still constant 12 volt power coming from brown cdi. Guess best to just update it.
