Stator Mod for a Dual Sport Kit
Posted August 08, 2006 - 06:36 AM
To all those dual sporters out there, how hard is it to do the stator modification? I have an 06 WR450 and have the rest of the kit done but am considering taking it in for the stator mod; problem is the nearest dealers have never done one themselves and look at me like I'm crazy when talking about it. The instructions scare you a bit saying you shouldn't progress unless you know what you're doing; any suggestions?

I'll get off my soapbox and answer your question. Is it hard to do? No. As long as you have the detailed instructions from the kit maker and as long as you have all the connectors, epoxy, and wires, it isn't difficult. No shop wants to do it for you because they don't want to take responsibility for messing it up- these things are not part of regular maintenance on these bikes. Usually, if a stator goes out, they just put a new one in.

Do you think it is possible to take the Baja Designs kit and modify it so that you don't have to do the stator mod....
Basically the BD kit uses the same components so yes it is possible. For sure you would have to modify the wiring harness or make your own. Here's a schematic of how my '03 is wired.

The mod is about to make one bigger winding where all Watts are turned into DC.
There for you will have more powerful charging system when you are not using the lights and are able to put in HID lights if you like.
Usually it is recommended to have a bigger rectifier after the mod so that you do not burn the small oem one.

-put stock regulator back in
-unplug headlight from Baja kit and plug into stock connector; this way I lose my hi/low beam however I hate the idea of that Baja regulator failing 50 miles into a trail somewhere and my bike won't start!
-extra load on the DC circuit will be an LED tail light/brake light, and the occasional signal, horn, etc. Should be able to handle that?
Love the forum, just back into riding and now that I'm 40, my dad won't fix my bike anymore; you guys help a ton!
