Lets face it Ricks and Electrosport make what I would call an emergency back up stator.
The quaity is not acceptable for long term satisfaction for our BMW F800s.
If the stator does not have a high temp epoxy dip it will not last.
The main reason we need an epoxy is to control the vibrating stresses induced into the stator from the magnetic field which leads to premature wire breaks. But the epoxy also needs to be able to with stand the 220 degrees that the BMW stator gets up to due to poor cooling from the engine oil in this engine compartment.
