I was thinking about how much to derate and I figured 1/18th is just over 5%. Since its hot here, I'm not running any heated clothing.
Now I have a new stator and mosfet type Reg/rec. Although I am pretty sure my fix to the stator would last as long as the bike will, I want to switch it out. I don't want this to be what stops my bike in the middle of the outback
