Question about 2007 Yamaha Road Star

3 Answers

Starting issues I get a rebuilt stator. The guys that did it didn't do an epoxy coating on the copper wires. Not sure if that would create any problems. I really don't know since the bike isn't starting now. Just hearing clicks Battery is charged I even tried jumping the bike with jumper cables nothing. I get another reset odometer All the lights go out after awhile and some funky shit happens on the dash, but no signs of starter turning!!!! All I get is the occasional grrrr grrr from the starter kinda like the sound you get when your child pushes their battery powered remote control car. That forceable gear sound. What would cause that? When I placed stator cover back on I didn't have a gasket, so my buddy the ducati owner suggested to use 3bond. No issues since ducatis are built with it. Would not having a gasket create clearance issues preventing the starter to turn? I'm fed up with this shit. One problem after another!!!!!

Problem solved, I removed the stator cover and discovered scoring on the stator cover, the damage was from the starter idler gear being compressed against the stator cover, the damage is minimal so i lightly sanded the area back smooth and reassembled the bike with a new yamaha stator cover gasket and that fixed it. come to find out the starter idler gear pin is clearenced to the stator cover, the gasket is required to maintain proper starter idler gear pin to its mating hole clearence, you cannot use rtv or any other sealent the gasket is required

Man, I feel your pain mate. As for the epoxy, the guys should've done it. Probably takes a couple of hours extra to bake it. Too late now. The starting issue really sounds like a bad battery. Have you tried jump starting it with your cage? Even though the battery shows fully charged, it may have taken a beating when the charging system gave up the ghost. Try jumping first just to test.

Duz eneyone now if there is eney uthere stator that will fit my 1996 ktm 250 sx thanks

Does any one know if there is another stator that will fit my 96 KTM 250 sx Thanks, search online stator rewinds, and get a price for one to be re wound.
  • Examine each individual coil head on the stator for black marks, indicating burned wires. Carefully cut the protective rubber coating from each damaged coil with a utility knife.
  • 2 Study the direction the wire is wrapped around the coil head to determine if the top or bottom end of the wire is attached to positive or negative terminal clip. Remove the terminal clips from the base of the damaged coil heads with a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 3 Unwind the damaged wire from the stator head with your fingers. Clean the surface of the head with a piece of fine-grade steel wool and wipe the head clean with a lint-free cloth.
  • 4 Coil new copper wire, of the same gauge as the existing wire, around the cleaned stator heads in the same direction as the wire which was removed. Coil the wire tightly on the heads so there are no spaces or gaps between the wire wrappings, leaving 1-inch lengths of wire at the top and bottom of each head for attaching new terminal leads.
  • 5 Crimp new terminal leads to the ends of the new copper wire with a pair of pliers. Attach the terminal leads to the stator with the Phillips screwdriver.
  • 6 Set a multimeter to the DC "1X" or "ohm" setting. Touch the black meter probe to either of the main leads of the stator and then touch the red meter probe to the remaining main lead of the stator. Any reading on the meter confirms continuity of the wires, indicating the stator is functioning properly. If there is no reading on the meter, recheck the connections.
  • 7 Coat the new wire with liquid rubber and allow the rubber to set according to the product directions.

    Need to replace my stator and it didn't come with a wiring diagram

    Hi Dave, the two wires closest together go to the voltage regulator in any configuration. The wire that seems by itself goes to the main circuit breaker. Good luck

    I've checked with an Ohm meter and have continuity

    If you are checking from one of the stator prongs to engine ground and you get continuity, your stator is bad. It would probably be a good idea to replace the regulator. I think Harley sells a kit that is priced fairly reasonable. But, check the rotor. I've seen one rotor that didn't have any magnetism in it. That's right, It was a genuine Harley part and the rotor had no magnetism in it. It was a friend of mine that put the stator in another guy's bike but it wouldn't charge. I checked everything and found nothing wrong except no output. Pulled it down and that's what we found. We simply put the guy's old rotor on it and it worked fine.

    Good Luck

    I have a 07 YZ 250 F..Was starting to run poorly, like it was lossing power..I just purchased the bike from some one who said it was just rebuilt..Checked compressoin and was a litttle low 60 psi. Removed...

    I would start by making sure you have the stator pluged in all the way sometimes these are hard to get completly plugged in. Then test the stator and coil with an OHMs meter to determine which is bad. No need to buy parts you may not need get them tested or test them so you know for sure what is bad.

    Not charging battery

    The stator is on the left side of the bike while you are sitting on it.

    It is underneath the primary cover, the largest one on that side. It can be reached by removing the primary cover, primary chain, clutch basket and the sprocket on the end of the crankshaft. I myself would not tackle a job like this at home. Gaskets are another issue on reassembly. The stator is a coil like winding of copper wire around which rotates a heavy round metal flywheel type piece that has magnets afixed inside of it, as the flywheel rotates around the stator, it creates the electricity, just like a hydroelectric generator you have seen on TV only on a smaller scale.

    All fuses must test and be good, including the ones not in the fuse box. The stator has AC voltage out to the regulator, so you are looking for the phase wires from stator to rectifier, isolate them(disconnect them) and read AC volts from these wires(not to ground but to each other) there are 3 different combinations so write down what they need three sets of numbers around 50 Volts AC with the rpms aroung 1500. if you dont get about the same on each of these you are probably looking at replacing the stator.the wires in the stator sometimes loose their protective coating and then develope too much resistance to output enough power to keep your battery full.(try disconnect all ubnessesary add ons) The wires from stator to rectifier often get hot and melt if not kept clean inside the connectors.(look fot wires that have been hot) Reconnect any that have damage.

    06 gasgas mc65 stator ohms

    Stator is volts AC ,isolate the wires from system check AC volts from one stator wire to the other until all combinations have been are looking for 40 or 50 volts in the pairs of stator output wires.weak spark could be volt regulator.or weak or dirty connections in the wires or at battery terminals. also running lots or ad-ons can **** the life out of performance.Am thinking of changing my name to check ALL your fuses, because they are not all in the box.

    Stator area

    I'm not familiar with that particular bike, but usually there's no problem with starting it with the cover off. If the repair would require any structural strength JB Weld wouldn't be satisfactory. Epoxy or JB Weld would be ok if you just needed to fill up a crack or hole to keep out moisture.

    Husaberg (FE 501-03)Stator problem

    I have never heard of a stator preventing a motorcycle from starting. You need a professional, local, second opinion before you plunk down any bucks.

    Unless that is, are you calling a magneto a stator? Does your motorcycle have a battery? If it has a battery, you probably do not have a magneto.

    Please help I have a 1980's model susuki dr 250 the ignition spark got steadily worse until it now has none.I have checked the ht coil,pulse pick up coil,earthing wires,cut off switchand had the stator...

    I have a 83 DR 250 and i'm not getting enough voltage to create a spark, all I can suggest is that you check your battery and make sure its at full flavour. Check and see if you are getting any voltage prior to the ignition coil (should be 18-35v). If you suspect battery then try clutching it as the alternator moving faster might give you enough to get her going. Also check all your connections and earths. Earth wires are often overlooked and can cause you just as many problems as the actives. So give that a go and get back to me mate. Cheers
