    When you press the Start button with the wiring in factory configuration does the MFI display show LOCKED message?

    Hmmm. I would bypass the LR-505 module as a starting point.

    The LR-505 controls ignition kill signal to the CDI.
    LR-505 also controls the start solenoid via the Black/White which then goes through Purple/White to the MFI display and then to ground. The MFI display removes ground if the security function in the display is 'Locked'.

    Possible problem causes (for no crank when Start button is pressed);
    LR-505 module has gone bad (common with the original 2001 parts)
    The MFI display is no longer allowing the Purple/White wire to reach ground.

    is it possible to use a aftermarket push button to connect the black wire to the solenoid.will it hurt anything else.i still have no spark.no 8 volts from cdi and I put 8 volts to the stator brown wire and still no spark.looks like I am looking at 3 electrical parts bad. stator lr module and cdi

    First disconnect the LR-505 module and bypass it. The LR can suppress ignition.

    With the LR bypassed you will be able to determine if anything else needs changing.

    Be aware that battery voltage while the engine is cranking is critical. If battery voltage sags below 10.6 volts then you will not have good spark. Battery voltage must stay well above 10.6 volts while the engine is cranking.

    with the lr module completely disconnected and I jump across starters terminals I have 11.01 volts with the plugs in place.no spark.i ohmed the red and green wires to the stator to ground and got around 435 ohms each.the halls seem ok to me.then I put 9volts to the brown wire going to the stator and checked it after the plug connector and it was 9 volts there.cranked over and no spark.could the stator have taken out the cdi.?cause that's what appears to me.

    With the LR module bypassed did the CDI have battery power?

    The Bilge button when pressed will force battery voltage onto Orange, which in turn should feed into the CDI Red/Purple wire.

    That is how it is supposed to work.

    If you hold the bilge button and crank the engine do you have spark?
