    Default 1990 Ktm 250

    Hey fellas, I've got a friend who purchased a 1990 KTM 250 (DXC?), which has no spark. He states that the ECI and coil have been replaced. I haven't the bike, but according to him in it's fairly decent shape. The question is whether the stator should be replaced? He has not checked whether there are shorts and I have advised him to do the first. In the event, that is grounded, should he next check the stator, and if indeed the stator is faulty where can a replacement stator be found. I've instructed him check ebay first...Any other thoughts or places where he might be able to locate an aftermarket stator...

    Thanks,

    Skoalman

    Yes the stator is more than likely bad. I had to replace the stator on my 1990 300 when I got it. It could be a DXC model but check the VIN there should be a DX or DXC in there somewhere, which means Desert cross country. It has softer suspension and lighting (130watts) Look on ebay and the for sale section here for a stator.

    Skoalman:

    Look in the Dirt Bike Magazine Showcase section, it's where they have a lot of concentrated small adds. There are a couple of places that specalize in stators for old bikes. I bought one there for an 80 Kawasaki 420 a couple years ago. They are also very good at helping you troubleshoot what your problem is!

    I thought my stator was bad but thanks to there help, I found out it was the CDI unit. They fixed me up very reasonable. The place is in Massachusetts or wherever MA is.

    Good luck,

    Wow, what a blast from the past. Never bought that bike, but still tinkering with other bikes for sure. Currently resurrecting my 73 125 DKW 125 enduro. Also added a pic of my 79 KTM 400 GS that Iíll be putting up for sale soon.

    Regarding ignitions - I go with VAPE (MzB) or HPI Ignitions now. Very easy installs and definitely a big improvement over the old Motoplats (may they Rest In Peace).

    +1 for Vape. I've got four of their systems on my air cooled KTM's, Sachs and a DT400. 12volts DC powering bright lights (even at an idle) is a bonus.
