I'm trying to help you and you are not following the instructions.
No - a faulty reg/reg will not cause a stator to fail unless all the diodes in the rectifier short out - in that case the stator will produce maximum current constantly and with 20 minutes of running it may overheat and burn out - if the stator fails from overheating, the enamel on the copper wire will be very dark and blistered, but the Chinese stators have a high rate of defective out of the box incidents - I use Rick's rec/reg's and stators (even though they are made in China) - they have a warranty and to date, I have only had one bad out of the box and it was replaced under warranty.I'm going to return stator and get another. I did a bench test on both regs and both fail as far as I can tell. Could the bad stator ruin the reg? Or give me a bad load test on stator? Trying to find a new reg. Dont want to spend another $250 on OEM and dont want to buy the $50 on Ebay. Trying to find a used one just haven't found one that fits yet
Why can’t you find one? Right here. I’ve had one on each bike for over 1 1/2 years. Thought I had an issue earlier this year but it wasn’t VR problem. Is it a RicksMotorSportElectrics VR you have or that other brand “Ricky’s”? I know Rick from RMSE and he’s a stand up guy that would warranty it. Hers the link:After Market Motorsport Parts from Rick's Motorsport ElectricsThis stator is a Ricks stator. I am going to get a better connection and do load test on stator again before I tear it out and return it.
CycleWorx wants $300 for VR and cant find 1 from Ricks. I see on ebay used ones for $80 but want to be done with this issue. Or OEM for $250. Anyone find a better price for a quality VR?
