When you changed the stator coil the new pick up was not with it? They are usually bundled and wired together. 

An intermittent spark usually is a loose connection, worn ignition contacts or an over heating part.  

Check the secondary ignition coil and the spark plug wire coming from it.  

I’ve seen pick up coils fail after they get hot and work after they cool down.  I would go over all the connections, grounds etc and start there.  Then get into the more invasive stuff.  Wiggle the ignition key while it’s running.

If the bike shuts down after a while be ready to test the pick up coil with an electrical tester to see if it’s getting hot and breaking down.  Check the regulator/rectifier that’s it’s not getting hot or failing.  Look up the spec in the electrical portion of the manual and it will tell you the numbers you should have on the tester.

The pick up coil is in the same area as the stator coil.  It’s the blue and white wires.  You have to test them. 

The regulator is near the battery under the seat or side plastic usually on the left side of the bike. Looks like an aluminum block with fins on it.

check connection- sometimes corrosion can cause loose connections- I go through the whole harness and coat all connections with connecting grease to rule that out for any electrical issues.

?

What are we looking at ? I mean I know what we are looking at but is there a problem ? 

Also that red wire in the background looks like it was pinched.   

The three whites are your stator coil wires.  

The blue and white stripe and red should be your pic up coil wires.

That’s good to know. Did you test from each wire to ground also ?

Did you order a new one ?

From each of the three wires. One at a time to ground you should get nothing.  

From wore to wire yes 300 + is acceptable.

      I have been working on a 2004 arctic cat 400 that will run for a while with a new coil installed then after a few min start sputtering and quit. Checking the coil afterward it it is burned up. There is 350 Plus volts going to the coil and I'm not sure if I need a CDI or its something else? Flywheel magnets have been ruled out!

      I am goin nuts here! I have a 04 400 air cooled 4x4 , I'm a atv,car,truck,mower mechanic for yrs,just sayin. Ok it cranks and kinda fires now and again then after 5 min of cranking and stopping itl start if u touch throttle itl did then u start all over! If u let it warm up sumtimes u can throttle it up other times it just does! Just depends on it? When it stays running it runs awesome,no problems except it just does randomly like u shut key off? Sumtimes itl start right back up others itl do the no start thing! IV put new plug,adjusted valves and hot tanked carb? I'm at a loss here guys! Please any other ideas? I don't think it's anything to do with flywheel? It's not the auto it has a hi low reverse lever on left fender and foot shifter? Help please lol

      Yes I just got a 1998 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. Ran fine after hauling then died. Cleaned carb and put new fuel filter, hose, and new battery in. Starts 3 out of 10 times but will only run for a short time. Any suggestions?
