WTB Stator - good or bad

I am need of a new stator for my bike. When I pulled mine, it was damaged & unable to be used for a core. So I am looking for either a good used stator that I can bolt in or a bad stator that has a good core & can be rewound. Please email Dean at [email protected] & let me know what you have & a price. Thanks

Try emailing Tim Parrot, see if he has one. Not sure if he needs a core or not. He has been rewinding electrical motors/stators ect... for quite a few years. Last email I used was [email protected] Also here is a link to his website

Tim likes to get an OEM stator core to rewind. He considers aftermarket stator cores to be lower quality, and will not use them or give credit for them.
He buys extra cores when he can get them, and started a thread here a couple of years ago soliciting OEM cores from any members who had one. Because of this, he sometimes has a few stators already made and in stock so he does not necessarily need one from you to rewind, and will sell to you just charging an extra core charge.

[QUOTE=OlHossCanada;180948].......aftermarket stator cores to be lower quality........

Tim Parrott or Kawasaki oem is the way to go. Pte's rebuilds are better than the new stock by far. I would suggest you leave Ricks Stators with Rick. My Ricks heavy duty stator lasted 490 miles before it melted the wiring at the stator. The stator body itself is smaller than the stock and the wire used is really cheap grade and small diameter.

I did contact TPE about a stator w/o a core. He wants $80 for the stator, $50 core charge, & $17 shipping. That's $147, a big difference than the $66 to rebuild a stator plus shipping. Hence I am looking for a good core. Surely someone has one??

I read a thread where he was wanting old stators. Quote" I will pay $20 for stator wth lead rubber or $10 for either plus shipping to me."

My friend, you'll pay near that for a cheaply made new one. If you had the PTE and the another brand laying beside each other you would choose the PTE stator. The TPE stators are wound that much fuller, you'd notice it. That the grade of wire he uses is hands down better.

if you killed a stator in 490 miles, it was an installation error. I have 10,000 miles on my Rick's Stator. Never had a prob.

I could be wrong, but believe the Rick's stators of yesterday are not the same quality as those selling today. More than one member has reported short life in a Rick's stator.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
