Trying to find out why my stator is burning out this is my second stator I put on 2003 r1

Hi, Rudy and the usual suspects are:
1. Excessive electrical "HEAT" aka "AMPERAGE" melts the varnish
insulation causing the coils to short out.
2. Overheating due to a faulty voltage regulator.
3. Voltage regulator not properly grounded.
4. Loose rotor magnets or stator bolts.
5. Faulty starter relay.
6. Old battery dead cell loose or corroded cables.
7. Faulty wiring in the charging circuit.
8. Excessive wattage in a batteryless system.
9. Aftermarket parts are usually substandard.
10. Headlight not designed for a motorcycle system.
Some bikes have charging systems that get the job done but just barely and will have the most failures, you can upgrade the system with quality parts and a higher output. Relocating the voltage regulator to a spot more conducive to air flow will help immensely. Regular wiring system checks for corrosion chaffed wires, rerouting harnesses that run too close to heat sources ie. cylinders-exhaust etc. is great preventive maintenance to avoid those breakdowns in the middle of nowhere at 2 in the morning.

I have a question my stator is busted , are the aftermarket stators good

OEM stators are best, but sometimes depending on the model or price it can be worth a try to go after-market.

Why does the stator burn out after 8 months riding?

Is this a one-time failure? It may be a bad unit.

If your generator/alternator keeps burning out the stator coils, it seems that they are being overloaded. Since it occurs over an 8-month period, the load isn't like a short in the wiring, which would cause a fuse to blow. This sounds like a constant heavier than normal load since it takes 8 months to fail.
The first thing I would suspect would be the battery. If it had a shorted cell, it would draw more current trying to charge. If this was the case, you'd notice slow cranking, etc.
(It's also the easiest to eliminate as a problem)
Next thing I'd look at would be the voltage regulator.
Something is demanding more power than it should to make the alternator to fail so soon.

I have a1987 f-150 acts like its vapor locked changed fuel filter,plugs,wires,distributer cap,ran fine sat for 8 months now wont run right

Sounds like the distributor stator/pickup is defective, this sends an erratic signal to the Ignition control module (called the TFI module) coil and that causes the timing to go wacko. The Ignition control module and the stator are mounted on and inside the distributor change them both, the distributor must come out to replace the stator. here was a recall on may of these trucks, contact a Ford dealer. Another problem is that the ignition switch comes apart, this also was recalled on many models. Below is a diagram of the distributor for your reference.11_30_2011_5_37_47_pm.jpg

Have a 1981 gs1100L keep burning out stators 1 a year for the last 2 years runs like new just keeps burning stators

Make sure the stator is grounded to the motor , the motor is properly grounded to the frame, and the battery negative cable is also properly grounded. Some times an easily overlooked thing like a proper ground can cause major problems.

No charge happening on my 2007 boulevard c90 seems to be a chronic problem on these bikes looking at a stator rectifier online and is the stator actually on the kick stand side under the second large...

the stator is behind the front cover on KS side, must drain oil and will need new gasket, normally when it burns out it takes the rectifier/regulator with it!!

Recommend Ricks Stators on line this is a better replace ment than OEM, mine has lasted 2 1/2 years so far (this was third replacement) Also recommend relocating the regulator to the bottom front of the battery box (requires fab a plate and extending wires and solder connections) this allows it to get more air and stay cooler I also added additional grounds

I have a '98 Honda VT1100 ACE Tourer. She idles and accerlerates good on the kickstand. When I hold the RPM's in there she starts "cutting" out on me. New fuel Shell Premium: carb job complete....

Check your battery with a load tester, make sure you don't have a bad cell. The charging system is showing stress, (the yellow wires are from the stator and will get hot and burn if the battery has a bad cell or the voltage regulator is no longer functioning properly).

Fuel pump is drawing too many amps and relay burns out, could also be affected by a bad ground at fueltank or in harness as high resistance causes heat.

Wire connector between stator & voltage reg/rectifier burnt

your voltage/reg. can be tested in a couple different ways check ground res. check res. then revs. bias on diodes you have ac in dc out it sounds like you may have a diode gone bad allowing ac curent to flow causing the wires to get hot
