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.

    Top 2" of my concrete wall has eroded. How do I fix it, so it will last, and make sure new concrete bonds to the old?


    There are different kinds of concrete coating. The choice of product varies, depending if the wall is interior or exterior and on the location of the wall (for example the product used in a bedroom's wall will be different from the coating adopted in a garage).

    Epoxy coating are great products that can be used in exterior or interior. Epoxy products however may smell and trigger allergies. Epoxy is one of the strongest coating for exteriors.

    If the space is a living room, then it is probably better to use acrylic cement. Acrylic coatings do not smell and do not release volatile compounds. Acrylics look similar to Portland cement and are generally less strong and adherent than epoxy paste.

    The application method is usually illustrated in the coating product's container. The procedure consists in cleaning the wall (you can use a power washer), applying the product with a trovel, and then checking the results after 24 hours or when prescribed in the coating's instructions.

    After applying the coating you can finish the wall with paint and sealer product.

    What are printed circuit boards made out of?

    Most modern printed circuit boards are made from a laminate material and coated with copper on both sides. They are also typically made out of glass-epoxy because they are easy to work with and don't break or splinter when cut.

    2000 Mercury 75 outboard 3 cylinder with 3 carburetors and 1 coil per cylinder. No spark. Need wiring diagram please.

    No spark can be attributed to two components; The stator or the trigger assembly. Even if you had a diagram (available online @ Mercury), you will still need a test harness,a DVA adapter and a meter to measure the resistance of the CDM's (capacitor discharge module) ,stator and trigger assembly. Best case fix would be the trigger, most expensive would be the stator. If you remove the flywheel, and inspect the stator, you can inspect the the coils that are coated with a white epoxy, and if one or more are bad, they sometimes leak a black resin, indicating the coil(s) have been shorted and no longer provide voltage for spark.

    The stator coil of my 1978 honda XL 125 is not working. I want to rewind it. My problem is I dont kbow the correct resistance in the winding

    its not the resistance that counts its the number of turns that really matters. Its the number turns that determines the the output voltage of your cdi source coil. I have an xls 125 ('90) that had a rewound source coil (when i got it second hand ), it was badly rewound and it only pumps out 60volts out the source coil going to the cdi box when it should be 100 v, as a result i get a very weak spark at the plugs (my plugs usually last just a month). If you have the patience to uncoil the windings and count them then that would be the way to go, and use the same wire size .buy good quality wire, not the cheap ones, remember this thing is bathed in oil inside the crank case so its subjected to a lot of heat and vibration.Once you've wound your coil be sure to dip it in electrical varnish dry it thoroughly and encase the winding in good epoxy to protect it from the engine oil and vibration.Let me know how it goes, cause i've been wanting to rewind my stator but current stator is a rewound so i can not get the proper count and wire size . Another option i've been thinking is to buy a china replacement stator , only problem is they tend to burn out easily. my analysis is that they do due to the fact that the windings are not encased in epoxy so they have no protection from the harsh condition inside the engine. So using that and protecting it from the heat oil and vibration (varnish and epoxy) might work. What ever path you take let me know, am getting tired of buying new plugs every month. you can email at

    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.

    My 95 gmc will not atart i changed the fuel tank

    If you do have fuel pressure, but there is no fuel getting into the cylinders to run the engine, then the engine does not have an injector signal or pulse to open the fuel injectors.

    The ignition module and the pick-up coil/stator located inside of the distributor is what generates the signal that the ECM (Engine Control Module) uses to time and fire the fuel injectors, as well as the signal to run the fuel pump and the dwell signal timing to fire the ignition coil. A faulty ignition module can cause any one of these systems to malfunction.

    That does sound like a malfunction with the ignition module inside of the distributor, and you can remove the ignition module and have it tested for free at most auto part stores. If the ignition module does test out alright then the problem could still be in the pick-up coil/stator, (it can be tested using an ohm meter by dis-connecting the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and the ohm reading between the two wires from the pick-up coil/stator should be between 500 and 1500 ohm's, and both of the wires from the pick-up coil/stator should show an open loop or an infinite reading between each wire and ground) and if the pick-up coil/stator is found to be faulty then replace the entire distributor, or the distributor will have to be dis-assembled to install a new pick-up coil/stator.

    If you do purchase a new ignition module be sure that it does come with a silicone grease or a die-electric compound because it is a heat sink and the ignition module will burn up without it.

    To install the new ignition module first clean out the mounting surface inside of the distributor. Then completely coat the metal contact surface under the ignition module with a thick coat the silicone grease or die-electric compound and do not leave any of the metal contact surface of the ignition module un-coated with the silicone grease or die-electric compound, and be very careful not to over-tighten the ignition module or it will be damaged.

    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.

    Hi Adam. Easy part first! Check locally for an electric motor specialist, who can rebuild (rewind) the stator for you. If no luck there, check out eBay for a complete motor (stator and rotor), they come along fairly often.
