    On 99 models the rectifier is in the MPEM. I'd pull the front cover of the engine to make sure the stator is ok, as your other option is buying another MPEM. Someone probably tried to jump-start the ski with a car, and fried it.

    Can anyone help with this. Seems odd that it is getting no voltage at all. Doesnt the stator control spark as well as charging? Anyone have a better way of chacking the stator?

    charging fixed

    i found that the stator had a dead short in it. really a pain to check without the 6 pin harness adapter. had the dealership change it out once i found the problem. i did not have the tools to take out the flywheel etc, they only charged 250 for labor,stator was around 280. i think the previous owner tried to jumpstart it with a truck or something i found a 20amp fuse in the elect box,and it had a dead batt. thats probably what fried it. the strange thing is that it ran great! i thought the stator was for the ignition as well? anyway thanks for the ideas,
