ElectroSport Stator installed...

My stator failed at 25,700 miles; it was replace with an ElectroSport Stator by Tom Cutter, aka Rubber Chicken Racing. http://www.rubberchickenracinggarage.com

Stator: $199.00
Gasket: $16.02
Labor: $93.75
Output at idle: 14.4v
Result: Priceless!

If you're in the NorthEast, I highly recommend Tom! He's now an OE supplier of ElectroSport Stators http://www.electrosport.com/street-b...800-02-07.html

Cheers, M.

PS: He's also an OE Ohlins supplier. He did my fork & shock upgrade last year. They performed flawlessly on the RMAR this summer http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=820184 & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNVTKPXZ_8U

Question Confused and Curious

Hi All, the new guy here,,,
I was wondering if anybody can explain why the charging system appears to charge stronger at low to med speed, but hit a plateau and then fall at freeway speeds. Just trying to understand all the electronic theory.

that's a known issue with F800 .. voltage output at idle will be higher than at 3k+ rpm. recommended upgrade is MOSFET rectifier/regulator. which still will shunt excess voltage to ground. but will correct voltage output issues.

One thing I have noticed is I don't get near the voltage drop since replacing the stator. I can run heated grips on high, D2 Aux lights and my 90W W&S jacket liner without dropping below 13.5 V. I think I will add the heated pants liner now

Jack THE guy

Well, it seems it is my turn to suffer from stator maladies. 2010 F800gs, 42K miles. After reading most of the threads about it, I decided on following the procedures Jack (www.roadstercycle.com ) explains on his videos. As many have mentioned, he is very helpful if you reach him by email. He, within minutes, guided me into checking the system and help me find the dark true: fried stator. Of course, Joel, JRwooden and ebrabaek were fundamental in getting it sorted out. Let me know you guys if you come to Costa Rica to get you some drinks.

Well now that Reaver is invited you'll need a whole support truck just to take all the spares with you. I volunteer to drive it
