a friend has brought me a ratty 75 rally 200 to get running for him. The femsa stator wires are toast, totally disintegrated insulation. He believes the engine is ok otherwise so I'd like to try finding another ignition for him. What do folks favor lately for this... vape?[/img]

If its just the wires and not anything else (coils, pickup), you can rewire the stator and try to get spark.

If his stator is toast you can also throw out a wanted ad on scoot.net for a spare Femsa stator. Someone might have some on the shelf.

If you dont want either/ want to spend money I believe the only replacement ignition system on the market for the Femsa crank is the Pinasco Flytech.

Taper is different on the rally.

I used the vespatronic flywheel, there’s a thread on it here on mv

I really wanted to keep it stock but was fed up with the femsa

Thanks for the input. I tried soldering in all new wires in the stator already but no dice, still no spark. The owner is leaning towards starting off with some new hardware vs paying me to try patching up old parts with different old parts. I think if it was mine, I would keep going and try to get it going as is.

I'll tell him about vespatronic. Nothing else that gets the job done without changing out the crank?
