I think I knocked it out under two hours.

Here's a side by side comparo with the new part and the old, fried one.

Crispy bits were all inside cover. I'll be doing an oil change tomorrow.

Most of the epoxy coating got hot enough to melt away.

I'm hoping we can eventually find a vendor that can do rewinds that meet the spec of our bikes. It would be nice to have one for a spare since I've had both of my GSs stators fail and they've been replaced with superceeded parts.

Sorry, another question did you get the new flywheel design as shown in post 399 ?
