    1996 Polaris sl780 stator test

    I am having problems with my sl780. It starts and idles really well, just does not want to run over 30mph, carbs cleaned, not in limp mode, so I started checking the ignition. When I checked the resistance on the stator coils everything checked good except the green/red to red/white wires showed no resistance, specs show it should read 490 ohms. This is the exciter coil. Should I replace the stator as the ski runs, just not at full throttle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you're supposed to have 490 ohms, and you have 0, then I would replace the stator. You can use a stator from a 94 or 95 750 as well as any year 780.

    BUT, you do not want a stator from any 650's or a 93 750.

    And welcome to the Hulk.
