I am having problems with my 2001 polaris 550 fan cooled sport touring. For the past month it has been harder and harder to start. This past weekend I tried to start it and it would not start. Checked and found the unit had on spark. After speaking to several people they tell me it may be a shorted stator. Does anyone on here know how to troubleshoot the stator? I missed out on the best day of snow because I could not get it started. I need to sled more before the end of the season....

Before you start riping appart your sled to get to the stator plate I would do the simple things first.
1 new plugs if that dosent work
2 test your plug caps if they are ok then
3 test your coils if there ok then
4 try a different cdi pack if thats ok then yes check your stator plate. Find another one and install it and see what happens.

After some carefull testing and alot of cursing I have found the stator to be bad. Does anyone have any suggestions where to purchase this part at the best price. I have received quotes from different web sites ranging from $300 to $700. I was kinda hoping to find one a little cheaper. Any suggestions would be greatly apprectiated...

I have found this information to be wrong. Tested it on three different sleds, and W to W/R is an open circuit. Does anybody know what the proper wire colors are for this test?



Also, remember that the brown and yellow wires are the ones that are on the main plug down by the engine, not the wires that go to the CDI box.
