Using a full Stator(rather than total loss)

Postby Ells » Wed Apr 20, 2016 2:15 pm

OK,
so my stator decided it needed to commit hari kari and proceeded to unbolt itslef. Obviously the stator is no longer functional, the rotor looks servicable, pickup appears ok. The other damage is to the thread (9 oclock position) in the cases. It is no longer possible to get a 6mm bolt in there. Can the thread in the case be repaired? It does not look too bad!
I am preparing to swap over to my spare engine. NOw this was my last 'race' stator. Can I use a normal one without rectifier or do I need to put all of the charging loom back. From memory thats not too difficult to do?

Cheers
Mark.

No you can use a full one without the electris Mark, just make sure you blank off the ends of the white stator wires. Bit of a waste though, yo might as well put a rectifier and small battery on. PV motor gets a healthy 13v then :-)


Can you not drill and helicoil the damaged thread in the motor? I'd try running a 6mm no3 tap down the thread first, it will probably come back

I reckon the thread may be retrievable so the bike will be going to see the doctor tomorrow and I am sure he will do his magic. However it was my last known good total loss stator, hence the question on using a normal stator.

I use a full stator on total loss mate, no problem at all.

Cheers Guys,
I had a lucky moment today and turned up at the bike shop just as the right man popped into the shop. Cut a long story short he got his tools out of the van and sorted the damaged thread. It turned out it was not the first time the thread has been repaired.
Just need to get the spare stator and pick up on and we should be good to go.

Thanks
Mark
