fusing stator

I have seen a few of you have fused the stator on your bike ,do you put the fuses in the three stator wires?If so how many amps ? sounds like extra protection to me and I am thinking about it.




If you see it on my bike I did it

I did mine out of laziness. The connectors were going bad and I had the holders just sitting around. Each one has a 20A fuse in it and they go on on each of the yellow wires coming from the stator to the R/R. It also made it easier to relocate the R/R.

Hmmm, I thought I posted something similar to the post Lance linked to, but I must've just hit 'Preview Post'?!

IMO, fusing the stator is no way to assure you wont have problems

I posted in that thread and still remain convinced that a properly connected voltmeter is your best ally.

I will not be using the fuses when I reinstall my engine. I will be using as high a quality splice as possible to minimize the series resistance which can cause the joint to melt. Most likely twist leads together and then solder, and then black tape wrap.

There are a lot of different opinions on this subject, you will have to form your own. I fused mine also when the wires at the RR started to get to hot and melt the wire. At that time I had a bad RR I think, replaced the RR, but still have it fused, with 20
AMP fuses. The old RR use to get really hot, could not hold on to it no longer than about 4 seconds after a long ride.

When I do stranded wire joints, I usually make two ends on each wire (seperate the strands into two ends), twist each set of two, then twist those two into one. Alot stronger and more surface to surface contact.
