    94 formula z 583 no spark
    Posted by Thaynes86 on Monday, December 19, 2016 11:29 PM

    I have a 94 formula z 583 that had no spark so I ohm tested the stator which was kind of difficult to find research on how to do that to a ski doo I only found Arctic cat forums so I spliced into the ground from the stator and ground it to the recoil and had spark I hooked up the air box and seat and went to take it for a test ride and no spark again I chrocked the spark and there is none again I inspected all wires the kill switch and key and nothing I'm so stumped please help

    UPDATE: it has spark when cooled all the way down and sitting once u ride it and it warm and stop and shut it off there is no spark

    sure sounds like a stator! This is a common thing they do when failing.

    The last sentence may be the key to your answer – when it cools down it has spark. This typically correlates to a broken or worn wire in the windings of the stator. Testing a stator can be extremely difficult, and getting correct ohm readings can be almost impossible sometimes. The other potential trouble items are easier to test. Be sure to check the key, tether, trigger, and coil. Then move to stator replacement if those all test OK. – Jason Houle, Straightline Performance
