Stator failure AGAIN!

Okay I did the stator mod I transfer a little bit volts came in at 13. 26. I let the bikes sit for a few days then I tested it again running the bike, and the stator stopped charging. I tested for ground with the stator and the stator is now grounded what the f###! With the bike off my alms are at. [email protected] the ohlm meter is on 200 ohms settin... Some insight as to why my stator failed again would be helpful for the record it is also a brand new regulator rectifier

Garage
What brand stator did you use, and what brand/type of rectifier?

Low oil can cause premature stator failure as well.

just to double check, oil level normal with bike on center stand?

if its on the side stand, window should be fully covered with oil

if you had one of the yellow wires smoke it means that it was getting to hot due to a bad connection and that will lead to a stator grounding out and becoming faulty

on a side note the cheapest stator I found is the electrosport stator at close to 100 bucks and its a piece of crap however the tim parrot rewound stators are 86 bucks and seem to do fine in our bikes

I hope that's all it was... I think the stator was an electrosport... The rr is also
