Welcome to this Great Site!just found out I need a new stator. I have heard of a poor man's fix for this problem but need more information.
Anyone out there go info for me? how much? what is it? where's the best place to purchase? ya, stuff like that.
If it's a 1200 then the external (poorboy) conversion is totally hidden behind the left fairing panel.......steve

Really? I can't remember what model I saw but it had a big GM alternator above the left belt cover, which was cut away to allow the extra belt. And of course the brackets were a visual without equal.
If you like the way rat bikes look. This would have been pure eye candy to you.
Actually Steve, Honda has great faith in thier redesigned stators. They gave me a lifetime warranty on this one. It has actually survived two plug failures, but is hard wired now.See, I knew somebody would have had no trouble with their's. Well done Bike and Dennis. Out of interest, what do you put this down to? Is it regular oil changes? were the mods (to cut out the connectors and solder wires directly) done before problems had a chance to start? is the bike standard with no electrical extras? I ask because many theories abound re early stator demise.
