Hello - searched high and low on the Internet and cannot find any info about this.

My '04 250x with 400 miles on it quit and has no spark.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Check the Coil/exciter/spark plug cap, it is one unit. they have been known to fail. I posted alot about it over at TT. If the bike overheated they crack, some just fail and leak. Otherwise it could be the stator or a shorted out kill button. Someone said the kill button wires are tyraped to tight and they wear thru shorting out the ignition. Check that first. You can unplug the kill switch circuit under the headlamp
