Ok, here's the story. I have a 2001 wr426f that ran perfectly an started on the first kick every time. I'm working on making it street legal, and wiring up a battery and lights/ horn... Well I have got a few parts in the mail, one of which is a trail tech regulator/ rectifier. So today I was attempting to "float the ground" so I could run the new ground wire to my new trail tech regulator/ rectifier. Well I pulled the side cover, pulled the flywheel, pulled the stator (with the backing plate) and then cut the negative stator wire. Then I soldered on my new negative wire, routed it out of the back of the stator with the other wires, and put the flywheel back on along with the case. That's as far as I went because I wanted to check to make sure the bike still ran fine. (After going into the stator and messing with the wires). When I tried to kick it, nothing. Kicked it several times through with and without the choke on. Still nothing... So I pulled the spark plug and kicked it with the plug hooked to the wire, and no spark. So I basically have floated the ground, (as I was instructed) and now I have lost spark. I have not hooked up the new regulator rectifier yet because I didn't think that would be a difference on making the bike run or not. Anyone got any ideas as to why I lost spark, or how I can get it back???
