Well I just put my bike up for winter or the next three months whichever is shorter...;-). I have 15,100 miles on my electrex stator using the TOC cover, so it is working just fine. FYI the OEM stator went at 10,700 miles.

I'm new to the site and to riding. I have just purchased a '99 750 with 1,900 miles on it. Since on the site I'v read alot of comments about failed
STATORS. What is this part? What does it do and why does it fail? Is there anything to do prior to it failing to prevent it? Should it be replaced at a certain milage? What's up with this thing. PLease give me the scoop. I have a Clymer repair manual and I'm having trouble finding it in the book. Please help with some info . Thanks

The Stator is like a altornator for a car, There is no real way to prevent one from going and no set milage for a fail. You can help by not overloading the electrical system, moving the R/R to a cooler spot and replacing the BAtt with a MAint free one.
Good Idea to check and keep clean all the electrical connections

Jeff -

Clymer's refers to it as the alternator.

Get a AGM, maintenance free battery ASAP if you don't already have one.

Get a voltmeter connected to the battery terminals. Should read about 13Vdc at idle, and go up to at least 14 Vdc by 3 - 4K rpm. If not, there is a charging system probelm somewhere.

But battery first and voltmeter first.

It's hiding under the left engine side cover, which you can't remove without unbolting the engine and tilting it to the right.

Aside from what Chad said about prolong it's life, keep your oil clean and full, as your oil is all it gets to cool with, maintain your cooling system, don't let your bike overheat and try to avoid a lot of hot weather bumper to bumper slow traffic. Heat kills the stator.

Allan, great post.
Pictures very helpful.
Why did you tie down the forks and center stand?
Can't figure that one out.
Thanks again.

That's to make sure there is NO chance of the bike coming down off the centerstand.
The rope is through the front wheel, then around the centerstand, basically locking it in the down position.

Lots of good info here. I need to replace the stator on my 93 VN750. I have Clymer's book and data from here, but no garage :-( so i'm a little weary of taking my bike apart outside. But I can't afford to pay the $900 estimate I got for Parts & Labor.

I hear you there, that is a pretty steep price to pay for a repair that can be done by yourself easily enough as long as you take your time and DON'T rush it. What I would suggest for the "no garage" problem is go online to a site like craigslist.com for your area and look for one of those Costco garages thingy's. They are cheap enough at costco already but a used one would be even cheaper I am guessing. keep it covered and closed to deter any unwanted critters. Just my 2 cents worth.
