Template for stator cover

Anyone have the scaned template for the plate the stator bolts to
for download!
I could print off and use as a template for the metal

Stator mod plate scanned on a standard 8.5 x 11 piece of paper for reference.

300dpi Download: [PDF] [JPG]
Note: When printing make sure you set it up to be border-less, or else the dimensions will be off. I made marks on the corners with a pen for reference.

You really need to use clay to transfer the actual locations of YOUR fastener holes, use a pilot hole, and then drill to full size. Doing anything else will lead to an accumulation of errors and your rotor could rub the stator. You only have .030" location tolerance to work with.

As long as the size is kept exact it should be no problem, especially at the dpi used. That's why Rags was able to sell a generic stator kit (that this was scanned from).

I'm not saying it won't work, but there is as error with the original template, with the scan, the print, and the fabrication; printers and scanners always introduce an error. Drilling a hole causes a position error as well, even on a CNC mill. This is why there is so much factory spacing on our pickup coils, to account for position and feature size errors in manufacturing. Just make sure the stator and rotor don't contact each other- centered is even better, as you'll get the most output.

I used the scanned template, but I only drilled the 3 outer holes.
Then bolted it on, and from the other side used a transfer punch to go thru the stator mount to mark my plate holes.

I am working on a blueprint, and CAD drawing of it.
I will be able to have the CAD drawing used at work to whip these out soon.

They will be made from whatever material we have, could be 1/8 aluminum or 1/8 stainless sheet metal, whatever I can find and buy from our scrap bins.

As long as your layout is within .015" of nominal, everything should work out on any bike. If you leave the clearance holes just big enough to pass the fasteners, then people could pick which ones to enlarge for a final fit, to help with centering.

The best way to use the scanned piece, first make sure u print it off with no scaling and no border, u have to select that in the print setup options.
Next, make your round 5 1/4" plate (2 5/8 radius).
Then use the print to mark the three OUTER holes. Drill those.
Now before u cut the engine side cover area out, bolt on your plate. Now from the other side, with the stator off, use a transfer punch thru the tapped holes to mark the 3 stator holes. Unbolt, and now drill ur holes.
Works perfect.

That's how I did it.
