Installing the stator correctly
Stators are built to fit a specific bolt pattern, with the wiring led off in a certain place and with the grommet aligned to fit a specific routing pattern. Care must be taken when installing these components to make sure they are aligned correctly. Failure to do so may result in irreparable damage to the stator.
DON’T: Install the stator upside-down. This is the most common installation error. The harness side of the stator must be opposite the flywheel. Installing upside-down and trying to route the harness between the stator and flywheel will result in severe damage to the harness and may also irreparably damage the stator and flywheel.
In this diagram, note the position of the harness relative to the flywheel. Be absolutely certain when you install the stator that the harness and flywheel are positioned so as to not interfere with each other.
DO: Route the wires correctly in the crankcase. There is usually a groove for the harness to fit into, often with a metal retainer to keep it in place. Make sure the wires are not creating any interference points and the grommet is correctly positioned so there are no bunched wires sticking out. Make sure the harness sits properly inside the channel. Install metal guide retainer and any retaining screws (if applicable)
The grommet should fit snugly inside the recessed area for it in the case. Be sure to seal any points
that may not be a tight fit with a high-quality gasket material. The grommet should fit snugly inside the recessed area for it in the case. Be sure to seal any points that may not be a tight fit with a high-quality gasket material.
DO: Make sure the mounting bolts are torqued to the manufacturer’s specifications, and that the threads in the mounting boss are in good condition (if not, repair with a tap and helicoil).
DON’T: Ask us to warranty a stator that was damaged due to installation error.
