A co-worker can't get spark on his 250 Yammer enduro, CDI?, stator? can they be bench tested? just wondering if anyone out there has dealt with this. Thanks.

What year is it? The 250 has points. The 400 has the CDI. I would start looking at wiring first.. Like the kill switch if it has one.. Or make sure the points are opening..

I believe it's a 76' model.

Well a 76 should have points. It could be anything. I would have him pull the cover over the magneto and see if it is full of water, or really corroded. I have seen spark plug caps go bad, points worn so they did not open, etc. Standard stuff. Those systems are pretty bulletproof and the main components don't really fail very often. So I would look at the obvious like kill switch, ignition switch, point gap, condenser that may have gone bad, spark plug cap, stuff like that.
