Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Please give me more details on what you have done so far. I see you said you replaced everything but in that case it should run if everything is new. Let me know

Hi DanI got this unit from a guy that ran it in his garage with no water and burned down two pistons. I rebuilt the top end and it started right up and ran for 30 seconds great and then started to misfire and back fire and it stopped. I had no spark in all three cylinders. Replaced the stator, voltage regulator and the cdi ( out of a running machine) two of them.I ran stator checks purple-red 437 olms 26 volts yellow-black 39 holms 2.4 v green- blue 447 holms 54 volts. I have unplugged the white wire connector nothing. I have checked all plugs and no corrosion anywhere.Hope you have some ideas....Jeff

Thanks for the update Jeff. I have the 1200 STX and the 1100 ZXI manuals which will both help with your schematics and test specs I don't seem to have the carbureted manual for the STX unfortunately..... Click on this link for both.
