    1996 sl 900 no spark

    It was running fine, took it out today for a ride and it started running crappy so I went to shore to check out the problem and now it won't start at all. Checked connections, reset button, fuses what normally fails on these. Thanks

    There is an CDI+stator update kit for those engines. In fact, the update kit itself has been updated, I think.

    Here is some info on the original update kit.

    sl 900 problems

    It actually still runs but doesn't run good. Looks like weak spark. Any to check condition of coils,cdi, or stator.

    If you have the original CDI+stator+coils, then the diagnostics are in the 1992-1998 Service Manual.

    If you have the updated CDI+stator, then the diagnostics are similar, but the coil ohm numbers are different.

    How's the battery condition and what are your charging volts at the battery?
