i have a eton 90 and it is not getting any fire. i replaced the coil and the stator, and still no spark. i am going to replace the CDI box next but i was wanting to know what the rectifier does and will it cause it not to fire? how can i check to see if it is any good?
thank you

To me, the rectifer isn't used to create a spark (re: spark plug).

A rectifier converts AC (produced within the stator assembly) to DC and its built in Regulator allows your battery to charge - but not over charge. For more details, surf:

If you've replaced the Stator assembly, external coil, it might be the CDI. It could also be a bad connection within the electrical system or an improperly set safety switch - like its tether cord NOT plugged in properly. Could be crud in the key switch and even crud within its red kill switch. When the complete wiring / switches have been double tested, then focus on a possible bad CDI.

Note: If you need to purchase a new CDI, you might want to install a 3rd party non-rev restricted CDI. A few more dollars then stock but if you need the extra engine RPMs, you'll have them.

Hope this helps....

We had alot of problems with the factory plug boot on my boys Polaris 90 and switched to a NGK and have not had any problems since. Dont know if thats your problem but worth a try.
