I'm pretty sure that Moose just sells them. If I remember correctly they are Electrex stators. Never heard too many complaints about the Electrex stators.

I installed a moose 200w stator into my '04 XR650R. The only problem I've had is the bullet connector for my dual sport headlight could not deliver the current necessary and started to melt. A quick and easy fix was to just solder the connection.............works fine now! I'd recommend a moose in a heartbeat!!

Baja Designs will rewind your stock stator as well- another popular option not mentioned. Also, if your handy, there are posts here that give you info on rewinding your stator yourself for around $30. Do a search and you should find lots of info on this subject:thumbsup:

This is really easy. Took me about an hour and a half.

the nice thing (piece of mind) about the Baja Designs stators is they do not mess with your ignition. they only rewind the lighting coil. the ignition stays stock! you can never be sure about all the aftermarket stators. I had a Ricky Stator stator crap-out in my 2003 CRF 450r. the lighting coil worked fine but the ignition went out slowly. it became increasingly harder and harder to start.
may be an issue and may not be....

I sure could be wrong, but I thought that the Ricky's were the same. The ignition winding is stock and they only rewind the lighting coil. Same as Baja Designs.

On my Baja Designs rewound stator, the ignition coil failed just like your Ricky stator experience.

I'm pretty sure that the Electrex stators (Moose) are brand new units. As the failure of the XR stators appears to be a time and heat related issue, a new one would be better don't you think?

Kind of a late post, but better late than never. The stators that Moose sells are manufactured by Electrosport. At least they list them as a distributor on their site. I beleive Electrex is a different company located in the UK.

Electrosport is not so highly regarded on ADVrider.com:

BD, RickyStator, or DIY are probably better choices.
