Harley/Buell Stators

Little heads up to any Harley/Buell owners with an Evo engine. Harley decided to update their stator design and the new stator destroys itself, along with some other important parts if you dont catch it quick. Now I sit and wait while Harley decides if they will warranty my new stator. Got a whole 75 miles out of my rebuild. I'm glad I found where those metal shavings and black goo were coming from. The black goo was the plastic clips grinding down to powder.

Video aint me...Just how it can go horrible horrible bad.

Well arent you special. lol. It's the updated stator, if you check the link there you'll see the difference between the 2. This has nothing to do with overheating/shorting.

Yeah, especially since Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha don't eat stators and regulator rectifiers with a regularity......

I've seen that video, however like many other things posted on the all powerful internet, I personally have seen very few Harley stator failures.
Pulling up invoices I've bought exactly 2 this year from our suppliers.
However I've probably bought 2-3 stators a month for Suzuki's alone.....
Now, ask me about Buell 1125 regulator/rectifiers and charging harness and relay.

There is a good write up on the 1125 stator issue. They came out with a different sprocket/basket with holes to create a oil/air bath or you can drill some holes into the current one. No east fix on that rubbing harness...

If you google "buell stator rivet" there is mention of it on all 3 major XB forums, I just didnt think I needed to post that many links here.

According to ABS this seems to be a real hit or miss issue with the XBs and the clearance, which is really really odd. I'm sure I'll have her running just in time for the rainy season and winter. Yay!

Yep, it definitely seems the issue is much more Buell related. I've seen very few Sportys lose their stator.
The harness deal on the 1125's seems to burn up when the r/r goes out.
I've seen an easy 5-6 of those in the last couple of years, and that's even after the alleged "recall" has been performed.
Good luck on your deal, I hope it all works out for you.

It's a nice feeling when you split your cases to find everything you did was perfect and it was an OEM faulty designed part. Yay...Now just another 300$ and the waiting game to ride again.

Simple piston swap. Everything else remains the same. Can pick up a used pair on ebay for 200$. New wrist pins and clips to be safe. Easy top end job, rotate engine, remove rocker boxes, heads, and jugs. Swap pistons, put it back together. 4 Hours at the most.

Sorry, 12 pistons had a minor raise in the center, 9s have a larger raised center section. Raises compression, must run premium gas and race map. EBR recommended mod besides the ecm, air filter, and exhaust.
