    No Spark Crf250r 05

    hey i found the problem the stator had failed as soon as i changed that she fired straight back up well it worked for another hour or so then stopped again. On further inspection i found a valve shim stuck to the magnet on the flywheel and checked the valves straight away to find a shim missing from one of the exhaust valves i havent got a clue how this has happened but she should be up and running again in no time. Just out of interest has anyone had this before or even heard of it?

    No Spark Crf250r 05

    Riding today bike just stops, at the time i had just come to stop & it stalled, on inspection no spark, checked plug, coil, cdi all ok, no broken wires or loose connections & connect/disconnect kill switch makes a difference, dont know how to check the stator as i feel this is the only place to go, anyone else had a stator go if so does it just stop as mine has or does it play up first, also how do i check the stator? please help! john
