I thought about fusing the stator on my 750 but there is a thread on here somewhere that Mentions some one that did put fuses in the three wires to the stator and one fuse blew leaving it to run on only two legs of the three and overloaded them and burned up the stator.A more dependable check of your stator is to set it to AC volts at least on a 100 volt scale,charge your battery start your bike with the three stator wires and check to see if you have at least 50 volts AC between any and all combinations of yellow wires,at around 3000 RPM that is a definitive test for a good stator.the resistance method works but is kinda iffy and can give false readings. When I wired mine Back up the connectors looked like they had begun to heat up and I mentioned on here about fusing mine and some one told me about the thread I mentioned earlier and suggested that I solder the stator connections instead of using the bullet connectors,which is the route I went ,because if you have to go to the trouble that it is to replace the stator, how hard would it be to resolder three wires ,If Kaw had meant to make it easier the would have made both sides of the frame bottom removable instead of one and a loose connection or corroded one may have been the cause of your problems rather than an effect.Its your decision but given these charging system's weaknesses I want every advantage I can get ,and solid connections are cheap peace of mind JMO
If you see it on my bike I did it
