Hey all,

Working on a 1988 px125e. The bike wouldn't start due to loss of spark. Narrowed it down to the stator plate being fried.

Purchased a new stator plate for replacement.

Plugged it in. Fired the bike up. Success!!

Wait! No lights. At all. Headlight signals brake. All gone. Horn works however.

Any suggestions to why?

I purchased from scooter mercato and they clarified that the stator I ordered was appropriate for the bike.

Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

Your PX should have a battery; if it does, then the correct stator plate is this:

The North American-spec PX models should have all been battery-equipped, and the signals, horn, and brake light are fed by the battery. The headlight would be fed by the stator, via the electronic regulator. And, of course, if you have e-start, that is also battery-dependent.

But if your scooter is a grey market model, then all I stated above is moot.

Crisis averted everyone.

After significant diagnostics and how to lessons with a voltmeter, forum guru MJRally helped me realize that the faults were do to installer error.

The guys at Scooter Mercato nailed the recommendation of the stator.

Thanks everyone.

If anyone can learn from this: make sure things aree plugged in. Properly.

Much love.
Thanks again.
