Stator Compatablity?

Hey there. Recently picked up a project 2002 kx250. rebuilt the motor and had it ready to run until we found out the stators shot. Cant seem to find any 250 ones on ebay,does any one know if a 125 will work? How about other years? Seems to have the same backing plate which leads me to think it should work but I'd like to know for sure if anyone's tried it. Mainly concerned about flywheel clearance. Thanks

99-02 250s will all work, I think the 99-02 125s are the same stator but think the wires too short.


I have the same question.  I do know that the part numbers are different with the stator and CDI/Igniter, 99 vs. 02.  I have this question because there is no condenser on the 2002 and the 02 has Dual Stage ignition.  I want to drop my 02 motor in my 99 roller and was hoping to save time by using the 99 CDI and ignition without having to swap the wiring too.

In 01 the igniter box was a single-ply model and much smaller than the 99-2000. The plug ends are way different as well. If you've got the ignitor from the 02 I'd just hook it up while you're at it.

Single plug I meant. The 99 and 2000 were dual plug ignitor and the wiring harness was different as well.

I was hoping to save time, I also dont see a condensor on the 2002 but there is one on the 99.

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 Kawasaki kx250 that died suddenly on me the other day. all i can get it to do is backfire every once in awhile. Tested the resistance and everything of the magneto and stator with a multi-meter and all is good.  Coil is new oem Kawasaki the reeds are brand new vforce and the top end and carb have been completely rebuilt.  key on crank is intact and all the timing marks are lined up. I hooked a timing light to it and spun the motor over really fast and found that it is sparking way to late.  The service manual says that it is supposed to fire 14 degrees before TDC but it is sparking way after TDC.  Im thinking its a fried CDI box since its the only thing i wasnt able to check.  Any help would be appreciated

      Hi all,
      I have a 2004 kx 250 2 stroke and it wont start.  it only backfires.  I was out riding it one day and came up to a stop so the bike was just idling and it started to try and die so i revved it up a few times then let it die and now it wont start back up.  It only pops or backfires when you kick it.  Its getting good spark and i just put a brand new plug and coil in it. I took the reeds apart and they look like they're brand new.  It was running great before so i dont know what happened.  Im thinking it could be a fuel problem even tho the plug is a little wet if you take it out after a bunch of kicking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
