    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    The 200 Ohm range will give you a more accurate reading since you're only attempting to read up to 76 Ohms as opposed to the 2k Ohm range which will give a much smaller reading since it's on a larger scale and will read such as in tenths of an Ohm and might confuse you unless you convert the reading in the 2k range.

    You want whole numbers which is easier...

    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    OK Correction to my readings. 54.6 B\BR and 0.05 for the yellow side. So it looks like the stator is good? Does it matter that I have the flywheel off? Why would my acv be off so far?

    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    Yep! You're golden!

    The 54.6 reading is almost dead center of the range(40-76 ohms) and the 0.05 ohms is in the minimum range. So that all looks good!

    I would move onto the spark plug caps and wires(high tension lines) and then move to the generating coil...

    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    I am not getting power to the coil. And my AC volts are low during cranking

    So if there's no power to the coil. Do the test for that component. If the component tests good. Then the problem is BEFORE the coil.

    Ok. I just put the flywheel back on and a ohms readings are good but I am still between 6 and 7 ac volts at the black wires and the manual is calling for 18 to 24 while cranking.

    Just caught up on the thread, need a little time to digest. Are the flywheel magnets in good shape.

    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    Thank you. They seep pretty clean to me. I am at a loss here because of the low Vac. If I look at the manual it is the charging coil.

    Re: 2001 GTI, no spark?

    Ok let's go through the steps that apply to where you are at in the testing process.

    Generating Coil verification for 717cc motors under Dynamic Test procedures:

    Step #7 states: "Crank the motor and note the result. The values should be between 18VAC-26VAC."

    Step #8 states: "If the generating coil is out of spec(which it appears to be at 6VAC-7VAC while cranking). Replace the coil.

    I think at this point you've determined that the coil is weak & defective and not providing the necessary output needed to start the engine.

    So I would order a new coil or re-test the coil using the test procedure.

    Ok. Cool. That is what I was thinking. The Charging coil is part of the stator assembly. Correct? Like here http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-SeaDoo-7...hZARFz&vxp=mtr
