hi im new to all this so please bear with me. i have a kx125 1987 model. i bought it off a friend last week with no spark. he has told me its the stator and to be honest he doesnt know his head from his A**E so is there a way of testing the stator? and work my way from there? and if not are there any common problems? i have a few 2nd hand parts but i cant guarantee they work so?? any ideas, tips on where to go? advice will be very much appreciated cheers john

Seeing as no one else has piped up, I will throw in a couple of thoughts. Others here are MUCH better at diagnosis...

What does the bike do? Does it turn over? Stator being a charging item, I assume the battery is dead? The first thing would be to put a Battery Tender on it and get it charged up. A car type battery charger can be too much for a MC battery. If (or when) it is turning over, pull the spark plug boot, insert a screw driver, rest the other end of the blade a small distance from a ground and see if you are getting a spark.

A service manual is a big help also. They will list steps to follow to track things down.

Someone more better will pop up soon!

Found the problem!!! the coil has fused together! tested it with my mate the electrician and he even said very little resistance? i had a 2nd hand one at the ready! yet another problem as there always is, it was the wrong 1. this spare 1 i had had a little black box on the stator? and the 1 on the bike already had a primary and secondary coil? so need to get searching for parts :) MORE MONEY!!!
