    1981 JS440 has a bad igniter

    Help! I am new to this forum, and so glad to find you! My name is Stuart and I am in Miami.
    My 1981 stand up has been in storage for many years. But now the grandkids want to ride!
    The unit would not start - no spark at all. We tested the CDI igniter per the service manual, and it tests bad.
    Is there anyone who knows where I might find a replacement? Or anyone who repairs these units? Or if there is a substitute igniter I could use?
    My part is marked Kokusan Denki 1U22 061H. I was told it is Kawaski part number 21119-3016.

    I'd be most appreciative of any help or suggestions!

    so you did the ohm test between the spark plug leads? You should try cutting back the leads and make sure it's really bad, no spark is usually caused by a bad stator or stop switch
