Yes, my regulator was bad too. You should definitely check that and it's easy to get too. There is a way to check it but you will have to get your manual and see how to do it.How about your regulator? It could be dead.It should be on the frame over your rear wheel,brake side. Just a wild guess I am far from a pro.
My standard answer is "Invest the $50 in the Honda shop manual." it has all the test procedures for every thing on the machine, and very good trouble shooting in a logical step by step order. In the long run it is a lot cheaper and easier than changing expensive electrical parts.interesting how do you test the stator ? my sons recon stoped running and no fire is coming from the plug .. bought a new cdi box wasnt it , checked the selenoid wasnt it , checked the one fuse in the back wasnt it , what could the problem be ?? this one has really stumped me !!! i need help on how test and find out why this recon is getting no fire !!! i know this is a foreman 450 forum but i posted it in the recon section and no replies .... help help and more help PLEASE >.... THANKS GUYS //..
