Long time no see.
I managed to get my blown engine out of my road legal bike and attempted to remove my flywheel.
I damaged some of the copper wire in the stator doing so, and the flywheel still didn't come off with a puller.
So I got my 2000 WR400 into an engine specialist (He does hill climb race builds- had an awesome 350hp quad with a CBR900 RR engine and nitrous setup).
He said the stator will be shot, and that it's going to be $980 to replace a welded counterbalance bearing, fix my galled threads on the flywheel (from failed pull attempt). The piston and Nikasil sleeve were fine, but he wants to replace the piston anyway due to the hours on bike. Though I was in sticker shock I'm proceeding with this rebuild.
The problem is, I've hit a brick wall finding a stator. I can't really afford $300 for a new OEMreplacement, and so far I've been turned down on re-wires.
Is there any compatible stator for this bike that is drop in, or a slight mod and will be cheaper? Does anyone have one for sale? This rebuild broke my savings, and is breaking my heart since she's my favorite ride.
