Is it on all cylinders? If so make sure the ignition is open when the key is engaged and the kill switch is open as well. If those look good, I would go change the CDI first then try the stator. But make sure all the connections are made down by the stator and the CDI first.
the single black wire located near the large connector comming out of the stator is the wire to disconnect to test the switches. do a resistance test on the stator before you replace it. unfortunately, there's no tests that you can perform to check the cdi. here's a good place i've used to get used parts:

Yes, they are right. When the Black single wire that goes from the stator to the CDI is grounded, it will kill the engine. I have CDI's from that engine if you need one. PM me or e-mail to [email protected] or call 815-478-7872.
