Stator is rear left of engine. Look for 3 yellow wires in a black coat going to a plug under your battery cover. Check that plug for melting. Cut the plug out & hard wire together. Testing 3 legs You should see over 50 volts on each one.
hi, is this the cover to take off to turn the engine by hand ? ive been told its behind the stator cover but not sure where the nut to turn it over is, i'm new to hondas so need all the help i can get, im having starter trouble as you can see from my posts, i got the thing to turn over in high gear by turning rear wheel, but still curious where to go to turn it over with a wrench, dont you hate dummies? lol, someone should write a hondas for dummies book lol
There is a nut/cover on the stator cover 17mm I think, you take that off..then inside there is a 12mmm bolt you'll need a wrench with a slight angle to it..like the one in the tool kit..note only turn it clock wise or you'll loosen it!! Not a good thing..take plugs out easier to rotate.
If all you need is a test to see if stator is good see the 4 page post bike..and Dennis, I just did an example of testing without spending money and time, you will need a volt tester and a specific gravity tester that looks like a turkey baster.
