Stator cover WIRES

I recently found some damaged wires that may be the answer (or partly an answer) to my charging problem.

Inside the stator cover there are 4 wires(black/yellow,black/red,black/white,and black) that I can't identify as to where they go (using a wire diagram). They are paired off and connected inside the stator cover to 2 magnetized housings which are bolted to the cover with 2 bolts to each housing.

Now one of the wires has its protective coating broken just at the base of one of these housings...Im not sure if a solder-job would suffice...so I was wondering if anyone had advice as to how to go about replacing these wires without buying a $130 stator cover to fix a few "strategically annoying" wires.

Or, at least what these magnetic housings do??

Thanks for any help

I have never had my stator cover off, but those magnetic housings you call them. They are what makes or produces the AC current as the stator rotates. As for the protective coating on the wire problem I really could not say if that is any problem at all.

The wires you are referring to come off the magnetic pickup coils which is how our bikes ignition system works. If you look in the Clymers manual on page 459 and find the pick up coils at the top of the page, you will see the exact color combination you talk about. These wires go to the IC Ignitor. I doubt damage to these wires would cause a charging problem although it would cause ignition problems.

The wires for the charging system come off the stator to the rear of the stator housing and are all three yellow. These are the 3 phases that the generating system puts out in AC voltage. The 3 yellow wires go directly to the Regulator/Rectifier to be changed to DC voltage that the bike can use. Check the path that the 3 yellow wires take as they can rub against the rotor and short out. THIS can cause charging system problems.

I had asimular split wire...just sniped it witha pair of dikes and resoldered untill I gt a second set of pickup coils. You can find them at http://www.ronayers.com

Hey weh44att it must have been a long day, eh? By definition the stator is stationary, and the rotor rotates to generate the ac current.

Thanksgiving

Gracias mi amigos! I'm debating whether or not I can fix this problem, one of MANY on my project---i mean cycle, or maybe whip out the credit card.

I bought this bike 6months ago and have only ridden a total of about 4hours on it before all hell broke loose and everything went on me all at once ((my fault for buying this one from a very shifty USED AUTO SALESMAN=not good=lesson learned))

So, as some may have noticed, nearly all of my posts are scattered from forum to forum with all kind of wares and curious feathers concerning repair jobs, I have dissected this bike and am determined to get back on two wheels.

Ill get there someday.......

That is a bummer I would suggest not putting more money into the bike above actuall resale value. That being said I realize to some folks it doesn't matter so long as they enjoy the bike and riding it how much money they have to spend.

The way I look at ammount to spend to fix versus scrapping is the cost of a brand new ride. if you can restore your ride for under what a dealer wants for a new ride then restore it...but only if you plan on getting your moneys worth of riding.

If you need pick up's, let me know. I have a set that came with a semi/bumb stator I bought. I'll get them to you for shipping & a bit if you want. I didn't have this availlable when you first posted. =)

I think I have my stator cover from my 96. I'll check to see if I still have it if you need it.
