stator mod progress, need opinions to make sure cutout is correct.

i used a scroll saw to cut the center out. kept some oil on the scroll saw blade to keep it from braking only used one blade i think it was a 7 pin end blade. cut at medium speed stop to let blade cool for 5 to 10 seconds. took about 2 minutes to cut. used a kids compass to mark the circle. there is just enough room to fit the cover in the scroll saw so it doesnt hit while cutting. i cut with outside facing down. cleaned the shavings out with air nozzle. then rinsed the rest out with a water house and dried really good. Glenn's mod kit test fit really good i just need to grind the ribs on the stator cover. oh yeah and need a new stator when my wife gives me my allowance lol.

Looks good...should work great....u cut out a tad more than i did on mine..but it should be fine...
As for the stator go with a TPE one..Tim Parrot Enterprises..his are the best.


Oh and i think i might move this to the Electrical section...since all the other stator stuff is there..

since I've done the stator mod and have all new gaskets and dampers would i be able to put the engine back together and on the bike while waiting for a new stator. if so will it be hard to get the wires through the rubber grommet?

If cut properly, Grommet, should not be a big problem.
That's what the mod allows you to do, a quick easy Stator removal/install.

As far as routing goes, you'll want to watch all the wires inside the case to be sure they can't contact the rotor. I used mini zipties to keep them together and made sure they were in the slot below the grommet.

I also re-routed the wires over the trans instead of under the side case and clutch arm.

I sent a spare stator to Tim and when it came back rewound it looked solid, but for some reason he sent it back with a new grommet that is way too big for the case. This seems to be routine, but I would have preferred to have my old grommet back.

I am trying to either get the old grommet from someone or see if I can modify it to fit the existing case.

How are you dealing with this issue??
