Off bike stator testing Question

Postby rustymich » Wed Aug 27, 2014 7:04 pm



Have a stator on the bench!Doing the readings each to ground nothing,measuring between the a-b and so on 3 to 4 ohms...
Question would you feel ok putting this back in.....Not load tested prior to engine removal or just replace it to be safe??
I can remove the motor in 2-2 1/2hrs...This was my forth one..What do you guys think???

Wow...fourth stator? I would have had more than enough by now, and would be looking at a Poorboy conversion.

New stator on e-bay for $65.00. If the motor is out I would go ahead and replace?

Rusty, If you want to keep the factory set up and not do a Poorboy, then I suggest that you take a look at the series type R/R sold by roadstercycle.com. It does not shunt power but it actually regulates voltage by modulating stator output (the way it should have been). You might also add up your wattage requirements to be sure you aren't exceeding the stator's designed output. If you are then it would make sense to do a Poorboy.
