Thanks for that; we're going to put some kind of monitor on the bike so your show and tell will get us started.

When I put that thing on I just did it because I'm an engineer and I like "instrumentation"
... now ... I consider it a necessity...

If you like, I have a paper template for making the little bracket ... PM me your postal address and I'll send you a 100% sized photocopy of the mouting bracket template.
It won't be "exact" but it will save you a lot of time if you want to mount it like I did....

Afraid I have never been a fan of displays like that in either electronics or auto fields. These is more they dont tell you than what they do tell you

Our new stator from RMStator.com.



It's amazing how much it looks like the "High Output" stator sold for more than twice the price for the DR.

is it my imagination or does the bottom unit have more turns of a smaller gauge wire per pole?

Of course they're different, the Suzuki one also has terminals and molded plugs in place. But they might have come from the same original source.

You can get that at any Motorrad parts counter without even having to ask for it.

You do pay for it, though.

Yep!
And if you pay full pop for the alternator at Motorrad prices, you'll feel like a surrogate Octo-Mom!

Yeah.... I was groping for reasons to explain why the two otherwise similar units had a huge price differential ... finer wire of higher quality with more turns taking more machine time and higher materials cost ... oh yeah and the three laminations in the center that were made from dilithium ?

Me know know...

I don't think there's much difference in the coils or wire gauge. No idea why the price is so different except they're being sold by different vendors.

There are a couple of ways you could look at the lack of epoxy on those stators, dont know which is fight

First outlook would be that the stator could dissipate heat faster since there is no epoxy to hold the heat in

The second is that the stator coils are more exposed to the heat of the oil in the crankcase and the oil would burn the insulation faster and the stator fail faster

So to the question :- Is the excessive heat generated within the stator or being induced from external temperatures into the stator
