The 1200 stator is putting out the maximum current after about 1300 RPM. What is not used is shunted to ground.The 2nd major cause of failure is making your wing look like a UFO any electtrical circuit that has been constantly over loaded will fail.
I just want to see more GoldWings keep their collector statussounds like nither brianinmaine nor cody in mn have replaced their stator. the engine is commimg out to do the job. right now i am getting an extra set of timing belt covers to cut for the conversion and any fuse or relay plus wireing. i don't have the means to make brackets so i'll just buy a kit and an alternator
It certainly isnt, it takes me about 4 hrs to take the motor out, but it's sure a PITA when I am in Arizona when it goes and I live in Ontario Canada.i've changed several stators in different wings. not that hard a job.
stator 117.00 oil and filter, rear gaskets, coolant
The OP asked for time/money spent on doing a stator replacement or an alt conversion, not an opinion on whetherhe should do it or not.Please let me know which work you did and how much time and money you spent. Thanks.
