Bobinwi is most correct here. And yes EVERY 2-stroke engine has a stator in one form or another. It is what gives the engine the ignition timing and also houses the lighting coil or generator as it has been called. It is found behind the flywheel which is what has the magnets in it to produce the electrical current needed for the cdi, lights, handwarmers, gauges and any other accessories you may have added such as a heated visor.
