    98 stx 750 no spark

    I recently bought a 98 STX 750 knowing it needed engine work. When I first bought I tried to start it. It cranked slow so I took the plugs out. It had spark then. I Ended up pulling motor as it started to seize up. Well now I have rebuilt it and it cranks great. I have no spark. I believe, prior to pulling the motor, when troubleshooting it, at one point I didn't have spark any more.

    Could the extra draw on the electrical system have fried some wires? Stater looked good when I had it apart. Not sure what to check from here and where. When I pulled the motor, I did disconnect the two plugs inside the gray box that go to the stater. Could there be something wrong there?

    Any advice is welcome... thanx.

    Virtually all the electrical problems I've seen on these things is due to dirty/corroded connectors. The original plug-in connectors don't seal out water very well. Pull all connectors apart and clean them.
