Im guessing you are not getting any spark. check to make surethe wires down inside your stator cover are not rubbed threw. while you are there make sure your woodruf key isnt sheared off , loose flywheel nut etc... Not sure if you have checked these things just trying to help!

If you painted the frame, clean all the places where ignition stuff mounts so it will get good contact.

The frame has not been repainted and I cleaned the ground with shop cloth and gave a light smear of dielectric grease. There is only one spot/wire that is the ground, correct?

Got spark again, my new Dynatek CDI is toast. Put in my stock one and it fired right up. Still haven't checked the quality of the spark, by the time my glasses get done jiggling around it's too late to see anything, lol. Hopefully Dynatek will go good for the CDI as it is less than a year old?

there are many a people on this site that will tell you to ditch the aftermarket ignition and go with the cr set up.

I really like the idea of having a headlight, but if I had known I would have this much of a headache I would have opted for the CR ignition. Why can they make a good one for the bike and not the quad?

Has anyone checked into the lighting ignition Service Honda offers for the CR500.
The CR250 & CR500 have different part numbers for their ignition systems, but if someone would take the time, I bet it would interchange on to the TRX adapter plates.
You look at a CR500 crank, the flywheel side is the same as a CR250 & the 500 stator plate, it has the two bolt mounting just like the 250 stator plate.

Ignition switchings not that big of a deal if you know the basics of things. Just a matter of the flywheel or rotor taper inside matching the cranks taper & the fabing up of a stator mount of some kind.
Shucks, if one wanted to, you could take an ignition system off a chain saw & make it work long as the timming is set at the proper time.
An ignition like that would be a whole heck of a lot simpler than what we are dealing with now, just would take a bit of time to figure it out.

I followed the site link to the stator, is 50 watts really enough? i'd much prefer at LEAST 100 (isnt that stock?) and preferably 150+
