Wanted to share a stator story.

At something north of 25000 miles on a hot day (before I knew of this forum) I lost my stator, probably in traffic at a stop light. I didn't have any mods (r/r reloc, m/f batt, etc.) done and it cost me mucho time to partial/pull the engine to replace the stator. I could not have done it without the information on this site and I STILL didn't do it right. My new stator had the wiring harness clamp situated in such a way as to allow the stator wires to get into the rotor and chaffed the wires. Right now they are repaired and I am hoping that the repair will last until the first snow and I will change the stator AGAIN and be MUCH more careful. So I have another Electrosport stator awaiting a cold weekend. I mainly wanted to say to say thanks for all of the people on this site that provided me with much needed information.

1994 VN750

Bought 1/06/2007 with 12152 miles.
Currently 30000+ and commuting.
Vance and Hines Exhaust
Stator (twice), r/r reloc, MF battery

There have been a few people here who've mentioned the Electrosport quality seeming to be on the decline. Have you contacted Electrosport about the issue?
