Technical Resource Discussion / Re: Sooo sad ... Stator Went Out Help ?

Oh man, sorry to hear about your problem. This is something that has been on my mind ever since reading John's write up;

http://www.ehforums.com/ehwebsite/forums/index.php?topic=856.0

Was planning on riding 1080 to Sturgis this year but I think I'll have to take care of this first. :-/

I'm guessing you are tired of the surprises your X keeps sending your way? Pretty much all of us have experienced what you are going thru, early into owning a low milage X. We've all jumped thru the hoops, and did our research, and then fixed. Many of us disappointed at the worst times or places.

I gotta admit, your black '99 in your pictures looks very nice...    Hang in there...

Yea .. It's a real drag that it did this .. I really like the bike  :/
I did test it .. and ( 1 ) of the legs is dead  :( and grounded ...
I did talk to Jamie about this ..
I do not know if I want to screw around and replace it of sell asis ..
I did get a ( FH020AA ) For cheap. I am still need the other parts  :/
replace it.

Erik,
Jamie/Marty (Atlantic EH, superxparts.com) have a new batch of them in (been in for a while actually), made by the original vendor.

Jamie/Marty (Atlantic EH, superxparts.com) have tried several different stators made for other bikes out there, with no luck. We have also had several members try other stators, with the same results. One of our past Vendors was rewinding our Stators.... thinking this was the direction to go, only get 6000 mile results....

Rich's (blackheart) comments are right on...   test that stator to make sure that is the issue. from the stator it should read on the stator leads 60VAC on each phase. If not, then it is the stator.  if the Stator tests good You then can check at the battery, to see what volts its pushing thru. If less than 13 volts its the voltage regulator. IF you cannot see any volts at the battery,..... the 2 leads going to battery run under the engine (I know, as I had both of mine rot out)...

You are asking at the wrong venue if you should sell or not. I believe everyone here wishes to keep their beautiful machine.

Are you not getting any AC voltage out of the stator when unplugged?  You should at least check it.  Atlantic EH is probably the best source for replacements.  To unload stator trash the original voltage regulator and go to one which regulates the stator current to arrive at 14v output instead of shunting excess power to ground.   Factory configuration the stator is fully loaded at all times so combined with high oil temps it leads to short life

Sooo sad ...
FFS !@ Now I have to fix it be I sell Or keep it !
Stator Went Out Any Help ?
Is there one that works ? a Better one ?
A Cross Reference one ?

On the compufire i didn't have to drill new holes & for mine I actually put new ends on the stator wiring to allow direct plug in to stator so there was no "splice".  I think it was around $150

Since we're talking regulators, I used a Shindengen SH775 on #2016.  3 wire splice and drilled 2 new holes in the stock bracket to mount it.

good to hear from you Rich....
Jim Turek also sent me a voltage regulator that had to splice the 3 leads.... but bolted right up.
He also commented that he never has a slow crank to start any more as it regulates a higher voltage to the battery to charge. 
I'm sure we have all witnessed the slow cool morning starts with 20/50,.... Jim doesn't have that any more.
As I don't know a lot about voltage regulators (for example, yours sounds like its the latest tech, compared to shunting)....  I don't know if Jims works the same way...
Jims is from Ricks Motorsports Electrics. part #10-815

I'll be sure to get yours onto the updated crossreference list...
thanx Rich...

Bruce, while not a bolt on.... ya have to splice three wires,  but the compufire 55402 voltage regulator is a bolt on to existing and will save from burning up stator as it unloads and loads it via circuitry instead of having it run full current in the stator at all times shunting excess power to ground.  Made in USA too
