Well shit.. Here is the email.

No go.

The amp rating I gave him was just the rule when converting watts to amps..

On 3/16/2011 4:59 PM,
I have a KTM 950 Super Enduro that keeps blowing VR's the stator is
450watts = 37.5 amps.

Will your VRRPM3 handle the above watts @ amps?

KTM located this VR behind the rear cylinder above the rear exhaust and
I think the heat is damaging it. I will be relocating when replaced.

If you would like pictures let me know..

I have done some checking and there are alot of them failing KTM has
changed the part numbers once with an update.
If this works out it will be an optoin for all of the 950/990 KTM's
Please let me know..

I don't have anything that will handle that load. I do agree with you
on relocating the unit up front into the air stream. Heat kills and the
cooler it runs the better.

Thanks for the quick reply. There is a market for them if you can build
What is the one for the goldwing rated at?
I could even send you one of my old ones to take a look at.
3 wires from stator, two outputs and a ground wire.

Does anyone now the actual amps the stator is putting out?
