    ok guys I have a question about stators on CR500s.
    seems mine died
    its an 89 and original everything as far as ignition is concerned except I built a heavy flywheel for it.
    its in a 98 Cr250 chassis and its a woods bike slash dirt bike.
    so without breaking the bank what should I use to bring it in to the 20th century?
    I have a 2001 cR250 motor with all electronics I can swap to 500 motor it or would buying a new stator setup for lights be a better setup?
    Bikes been stone cold reliable until it started loosing some top end and acting like no power if I revved it.
    found some chipped reeds so bought new ones and before I changed them bike was idling and just died.
    never done that before so now after reeds install I have no spark.
    and here I am.
    thanks and give me ideals as im wanting to go kick some 450 4 stroke ass at dirt bike track soon.

    Now, he just needs to finish my project.

    haha thanks man. i still was the one that called, but seriously i was just sitting at my desk during lunch and decided randomly what the hell, its been like 2 months since i tried, lemme pick up the phone. i was expecting to leave another voicemail that would go unanswered, and when he picked up it caught me off guard haha like... "hello? is this a real person? Jerry?" well now i got 2 projects to contend with it seems... i'll have to figure this out now. it did brighten my day yesterday though.

    What he's doing for me would take him 3-4 hours. He's had the bike for 2 months. I stop by once a week to see if the bike has moved. I usually end up staying 20-30 minutes bullshitting about 2-strokes.

    I wish Lester Harris would just make me an entire chassis.

    that thing is so good man. damn. Lester said they weren't really in the business of making whole arms any more. Attack isn't even doing quick change. I was kinda willing to pony up for a full one-off arm, but this will do with the RSW250 cover and all i guess. i love looking at swingarm fab though.

    Your arm is lovely, and parts like these are becoming a lost art. They are harder to find, and even harder to convince them to sell to you...lol

    yea maybe next time around now that i have a basis, i can tug on his heartstrings more, instead of just being "some guy." i imagine dudes like that get tired of the whole game of, "how much for a YZR chassis?" only to never hear from them again once they say $20k.
