'88 TRX starts, runs for just a second, then loses spark and dies. I can restart it immediately, but this happens for 10 to 20 or more times. Finally it will run, but usually only for a few minutes or so then dies - but will restart again.

The local shop cannot identify the problem.

Anyone here have a similar experience? If so, how did you fix it?

Thanks, Jimbolog

That's what I went through - the Cat would start and pretty much run fine - drop down to idle and it would die - spark check indicated spark was disappearing - only other indication was it didn't charge the battery properly

I first thought it was the stator, but the stator passed all tests other than output - pulled the cover off and found magnets stuck to the stator

Only thing, this TRX can be running wide open but die with no warning whatsoever. However, it usually restarts with just a push of the starter button. The battery seems to be charging also. Won't be able to get it to the shop for a while, but will post results.
