Jaime...This is a potential problem. Don't think there are actual statistics, but from being here, VROC and on the Y! group, a fair amount of us have gone thru it.sunnyorlando said:Hi John, and the rest -
After browsing some more, I see several posts regarding stators. Is this an issue on these bikes? How long do these typically last? I also understand that you have to remove the engine to replace it...?
Vulcansunnyorlando said:Well thank you John - I hope I don't have to do this for a very long time as my bike is a brand new 2004 and I hope warrantly will cover it for a long time as I have an extended warranty.
By the way - I see may references to VROC - what is VROC?
Thanks - Jaime
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.Dianna said:..snip.. I also replaced the inner stator cover with the one from TOC Manufacturing so when it come time to do it again.. 20,000-50,000 miles down the road hopefully. I will only have to pull the outer cover
Jeff -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
That's to make sure there is NO chance of the bike coming down off the centerstand.Why did you tie down the forks and center stand?
Can't figure that one out.
