OK guys need help diagnosing stator coil check. I disconnected the stator coil harness; there are 3 male wires in the harness, and a separate green wire with a red stripe connected to the same color wire.

The Haynes manual suggests a reading of 0.19-0.23 ohms, and a secondary resistance reading (the secondary which I don't understand).

Anyhow, set the multimeter to 20k ohm's. I probed one of the 3 wires with the positive lead, then attached the negative probe to each of the remaining two. I alternated the positive probe on each of the 3 terminals. I didn't get a reading on any of the connections. Free of any connections the meter read 1_.__.

Has anyone performed a stator coil check?
Does the motor need to be running?

Your trying to get a reading of about 1/4 ohm with your meter set to read 20,000 ohms. Set the meter to it's lowest ohm setting and try again.

Yeah like Walter says unless you have an autoranging meter set the meter to it`s lowest reading probably 200ohms...

The reading "1" means open curcuit,no continuity..

I'll hold off on installing the Tubliss for now cause it does throw off balance of the wheel a bit. I did already remove the stock trailwings but they are so new I suppose I'll just spoon 'em back on and run 'em till they're shot. They seemed fine for road and gravel and as long as it's somewhat dry in the woods they shouldn't be too bad.
The best thing I found to balance my tubliss stuff was dyna beads. They work great and they are easy to install.

I had a Mefo explorers for a while, they wore like iron. It was great on the road and dry pack, but as soon as you hit some mud

I understand the trade off between getting high miles out of a tire or better grip, it was just really surprising how bad that tire was in the mud compared to everywhere else that it performed great.

FWIW, the area I was slipping and sliding all over the damn place was in a forest and the ground was usually covered in leaves so that didn't help much either. Bottom line, if you don't ride a lot of mud or don't mind picking the bike up, I would recommend it because of the mileage I got out of them which was around 5000 miles (3/4 of that was on road) if I remember right.

Yes, I've got a Pirelli Scorpion 140/80-18 on there now.

Thanks Barron! I commute on mine quite a bit and do a good amount of gravel. Do some dirt, and mud pretty rarely. I'm still waiting to see how many miles I get out of my rear IRC TR8 Battle Rally. I have 2k on the set now and the front still looks like new and the rear is probably at 50%. And the price for both TR8's is less than just the rear Mefo... Still might try the Mefo rear (don't like the look of the front Mefo, not aggressive enough).

D-606 rear. Great when new, good when almost worn out. Don't think there is better on the rear for the L? 130/90/18. 120/90/18 for me not as good.

One thing I wish I would have done earlier in it's life was "rotate" the front tire. I got some really bad cupping from stopping or whatever causes it and turning it around would have fixed it.

Righteous. I switched the parameters, performed the check, and it's within spec. Thanks dudes.

Plus had to wait for my buddy to get home from work ,11 . Two trips to town . A big thanks to Ryan for helpin with that Kawi tire ( tough to get off bead ) Now , we just gotta ride . Never tryed Shinko's before , The 705's look ok . All three of us are going to run different psi . My buddy on the Kawi ,Run's almost 40 . My other bud ,likes 35 . I'm goning to run 32 psi ,both front and rear . , I was just reading about some rider getting a 140 x 18 to fit a XR 650 L . The only size i could get was a 120 / 18 in the 705 rear tire . The next size up was a 150 . I just removed a kenda 5.10 /18 , It rubbed the top chain guide , no biggie . but 2500 miles is all i got out of it ! Would really like to use a Kawi rear rim ,laced up to my hub ! Its wider and i could get any size i wanted . Bikes already lowered , front and back . My xr eats tires a little faster then the Kawi . I wonder how many miles i'll get out of the 705 shinko's ?

A bit late to this but my XR650L had new 705s on it when I bought it. I don't think you will get 6K Kilometers out of the rear much less 6K miles. I got less than 3K miles outta my rear 705,,,, matter of fact, I think it was around 2.5K miles. I've run a lot of 705s as I have run quite a few on my DL650 and my wife's Ascot so I do like them in certain applications but I hated them on the XR. I think part of the really crappy wear we see on the rear is due to the lack of a cush drive. And yes, I think your average XR650L rider is prolly a bit rougher on tires than your average GS650 rider. But,,,,, there are always anomalies and outliers.


If running anything other than knobbies, I would much rather run a Kenda 270 rear/Shinko 244 front combo as I got about the same life, roughly the same on tarmac performance and much better off tarmac manners than the 705s.

I prefer the Shinko 244 over the Kenda 270 on the front because the Kenda has real tall side knobs that flex bad when in the twisties and it's not very confidence inspiring when playing tag with sportbikes. The lack of the tall side knobs on the 244 isn't noticeable off tarmac. So the 244 has better manners on the street and it's roughly the same off tarmac.

I prefer the 270 over the 244 on the rear because I've had three 244s literally shed their center knobs {one shed only 3, one shed quite a few more, all in a row!} while I've never had a 270 do that.
