My 98 XR600 is an absolute pig to start when cold, I am lucky if it starts with 15 - 20 mins continuous kicking so always opt for a bump start, when warm it's pretty good but I think could be better. I have tried all of the various starting techniques and none are really effective, I think I have got the jetting about right, once it's going it runs very well and I have played with the fuel screw and don't want to upset it unnecessarily. I lot of people say the stator can play havoc on starting and my plug does have a pretty piss weak spark so I have just removed the stator from the bike. My question is - If I am to get the stator rewound, which coil/s do they rewind? Do they rewind all 11 or just the exciter coil (which one is the exciter coil? there are 2 slightly bigger coils than the rest) My knowledge in this department does not extend past actually pulling the stator from the bike. Any advice/info is appreciated.
