    Welcome to the Hulk

    I am not clear on what exact models you have there. There is no such thing as a Virage SLT, nor is there a 2002 SLT model.

    What model year are the SLT? Do you have one or two?

    You also have a 2002 Virage with 700c engine - correct?

    The Virage (all years) has a Gen III ignition system, and there is no upgrade ignition for it. They do not fail very often, but if either the CDI or stator has failed then you just replace with another of the same type.

    The SLT is a different story. Tell us what model year(s) you have and we will go from there. OK?

    2002 Polaris Virage 700 Ignition upgrade

    Sorry Sir, My bad. it is a 2002 700 Virage. I have two of them. I have order a CDI and a Stator for both from Polaris. I didn't know if there was a latest a greatest on CDI and Stators or just what Polaris has updated. sorry for the bad info. I saw in one of your threads where you can go and get a service manual for a 2002 Polaris. unfortunately, went to file it and you guessed it. I hit the wrong key. now I can't remember how I got there or how I stumbled across it. thanks for your info.

    You ordered two new replacement CDI and two new replacement stators - is that correct?

    Somehow I have trouble believing that all four components failed.

    Did you do some diagnostics before ordering the parts?

    02 700 virage

    yes sir, I followed your diagnostic guide lines. even using the 9 volt battery for stator. please understand that I inherited these things. wish someone else had them at this point, but anyway, they have been jumped started, battery charged on high started, hope you get the picture. so i just want to start fresh with all knew electrical components in and knew batteries. wondering if you can help out on how to remove the flywheel, or how to keep it from spinning while i take the nut loose. I got front cylinder at top dead center or the 20 degree markings in sight hole.

    2002 700 virage

    Thanks for your advise, you sure are a big help and I personally want to thank you. Sometimes people with knowledge like you have don't want to share. THANKS

    The rope trick works. now I got puller on flywheel with pressure, going to let sit overnight. Don't like the idea of heating shaft. may have too, hope not. this ski electrical box was half full of water. well be honest the other ski electrical box had water in to. the CDI BOX was swollen where the wires came out of it.
