TPE still in business?

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows if Tim is still rewinding stators. I was thinking of having one off eBay drop shipped to him for re-winding. His website looks like it's undergoing construction.

Well damn. I wonder if there is any good alternative as I was hoping to have my bike running at the end of the month.

The only way I was ever able to get ahold of him was to call him. Even then it was hit or miss. Not a very good communicator.

I've seen various other stator rewinding places/people mentioned on other forums. I'm sure there are others just none I have personal experience with.

His communication leaves much to be desired. He was very responsive when I contacted him initially, responding back and forth quickly, then I paid him for a new stator, and then radio silence for three weeks (!). I eventually got it, but jeez. Pretty aggravating when we're all used to Amazon Prime and cheerful customer service people. I guess when you're the only game in town you can do that. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work

That means you better use your first two emails wisely. After that, you can send as much email as you want, but you won't get a response.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.

TPE

I tried and tried to make contact with him. No dice. Finally ended up purchasing a new Stator from Rick's Motorsports
