    Last week I thought i could smell something burning and thought might just be the car in front  ( wishful thinking )
    Noticed on the voltage indicator / USB charger it was fluctuating around 12-13 V where usually it is about 14.9 
    Got the multimeter out to check the stator and battery and found this



    Probing with the meter set to AC im not getting any better than 10-11v AC while reving :-)
    My question is are all the stators on fleabay and that for about the 100 mark a just the aliexpress versions with a big mark up they all look the same
    Cheers

    Installed a new stator problem solved

    Paid  48 from a uk ebay seller
    Irish post office charged 14.50 vat and administration 6.50 for posting
    that's half the price of the item in tax and charges  ( cheers Brexit  ) :-)  but at least im back on the road so to speak

    Remember to keep the oil level at the top mark on the sight glass as it has to cool the stator to stop it from failing.

    Cheers man :-)
    Brought a small bottle of Oil with me today and stopped off a few times to let it cool down and let the oil drain down so I could try to get an accurate  reading on the sight glass as our garden is so skewed it can be very hard to get it right
    So sometimes you  have to go to a carpark on the flat stop the bike and just sit there for 5 mins and check the sight glass :-)

    Well here we go again
    5 months after replacing the stator I go to get on the bike and notice smoke coming from the stator plug :-(
    the plug has melted again
    I reckon the bike side of the plug ( female side ) was not great after the last meltdown prob causing a poor connection
    So I have cut off both plugs and soldered on some hefty bullet connectors instead

    I cant believe you have to stop the oil dropping below the top level to stop the stator from melting.

    Is it realy that critical?

    I  think in this case it may have been more that the connector was already damaged and prob causing a bit of resistance which causes heat ( hopefully )
    and not that the stator is overheating
    Just came back from a 80km scoot round the mountains and the new junction is not even warm never mind at melting point
