aftermarket stator replacement

Postby free to ride » Sun Apr 13, 2014 1:13 pm



Good day to all. The nice weather is finally here, and hence my question/dilemma.
I was attempting to install a poorboy alt. conversion kit with all of the required parts that was recommended by many folks who have already done the job. I have come to the point where I don't feel that this conversion is what I really want, having to make too many modifications to make it work as it should. So I have decided to do what I should have done from the beginning and just remove the engine and replace the stator. I have searched on e-bay motors and have found many different aftermarket stators and would really like to get the skinny on which one is the best to purchase. I have heard some folks have stator issues with some replacement parts, so therefore I want to eliminate that possibility by getting the best one out there. Any help on this stator issue would be greatly appreciated. I miss my wing ! Thanks

It was recommended to me by a gentleman that had put a few in to use, Ricks Motorsport Electrics Stator - 21-102, I got it at Dennis Kirks... It puts out good voltage at idle and I have had it in there for 2 years now. I am by far no expert on them though....

I just installed a ricks stator this week bike will be running soon, ive been told to stay away from smaller diameter wire stators to gain more amperage they just heat up and fail

I might add... that even with a new stator it is still best to solder the three yellow wires!!

Thanks for the info on one of the choices for aftermarket stators. I went onto Dennis Kirks site and found the item and read the reviews, it appears to be a good choice. I will solder the new connection as all have suggested. Thanks so much for the good info, much appreciated. Hope to get it up and running soon.
