hi thanks for the reply. how can it still run without a stator?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
have you seen this before with this model?
Expert:  john replied 6 months ago.

loss of power voltage is not correct

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
wouldn't that be a regulator
Expert:  john replied 6 months ago.

its very possible... its generally the regulator or the stator,, does it run but barely?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
feels like a fouled plug nothing is showing up on the gauge
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
what models do you have experience with? do you have diagrams available?
Expert:  john replied 6 months ago.

have experience with cats ....a faulty voltage regulator on these things plays havoc with everything. its easier then the stator which requires pulling the motor

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
any diagrams available or troubleshooting i could perform
Expert:  john replied 6 months ago.

the voltage regulator is on the left side of the sled [if your sitting on the sled] - right inside the footwell where you rest your left foot. Inside the engine compartment
