Unhappy HELP!!!! Stator Problem.

well my stator went bad again and I just don't know what is causing it. I just relpaced the damn thing this past April or May and the damn wiresburned thru again only a few months later. The rotor has an area where it looks to have been welded/attached. is this supposed to be there? Any idea what keeps causing this to happen? this would be the third time I will have to replace the stator. At around $160 I would hate to have to keep replacing this thing every few moths.

i have never had a stator problem on a bike...but u should contact this guy...

http://www.jetskisolutions.com/c1_st...nufacture.html


he is a goddamn genius and is one of the ONLY people i have EVER heard of that can rebuild them! he makes them better than oem (recoils, better wires, makes it tougher)

i am completely unsure if he can do a bike (he has a special machine he uses to balance them out) but he can sure as fuck do a jetski....call him and ask..

also....if u keep burning this thing out we should probably start to look for another cause cause this doesnt make sense (its not a honda...LOL DAVE)

check your flywheel....and the area where the wire lays...something is getting hella hot or its outputting too much and its asploding the copper

what's the flywheel? The service manuel I have does not have anything about a "flywheel". Are you talking about the rotor, the thing that spins around the stator?

Replace you're stator and check the regulator/rectifier and the wire harness connections for burned or melted wires. Also check your ground connection to the block for corrosion. If it were me, I'd replace the stator and R/R with OEM parts, and put in a new battery, after checking the harness and grounds.

This problem is all too common on Hondas...

Yes the flywheel spins around the stator.

I checked the R/R and it looked fine and tested good according to the specs in the service manuel. Any idea where the ground to the block is usually located?

yup, honda has an issue with burnign stators and extended a warranty for all 04/05 bikes till 2011. i also read on a gixxer site, they are also having the same issues honda is having. iirc, there is a recall/tsb for the gixxer guys about the stator. also, its a good idea to replace the flywheel and stator at the same time. some of the honda guys were only replacing the stator and not the flywheel, only to have it burn out in under 1000 miles.

the gixxer site was either gixxer.com or gsxr.com. if you search my s/n, i made a post in the thread.

hope this helps

I'm not familiar with Gixxers, but try following the negative lead and go from there. Typically with the Hondas (VFR, CBR), if you replace the R/R, stator, and battery (cells can go bad) with OEM replacements the problem gets resolved. Most repeated failures come from not replacing all the parts at the same time and/or using aftermarket replacements.
