    Did You test your stator to see if that's the actual problem with the ski or are you. Just trying to throw parts at it and hope it fixes itself . There are other elements to the charging system other then the stator. Rectifier, stator, battery, cables, all play a role in the charging system. You really should have tested it before Removing, it takes a volt meter and 2 minuets.
    There are three yellow wires,check the voltage Between 1-2, 2-3, 3-1. I don't know the numbers your stator should be producing, but it should say so in your manual. Good luck.

    I bet its rectifier.

    usually its 5-8 recitifers to one stator.? Clean your terminals and make sure the wires are 100% if not, replace them with new cables and new connectors. Many hardware stores will have a crimper tool and will crimp terminals for free or a small charger. Make sure the ground cables are fresh and clean, sand the terminals and make sure they tight. What voltage is it reading when its above idle?

    I don't have a manual for it but have been trying to find one to download online and no luck yet. I'll have to check the stator voltage and the voltage above idle.
