I took the faulty stator out the other day bit couldn't get the pulse coil pick up bolt undone and stripped them out to which I grinned slot in them for a scew driver so I could get some pressure on them while giving them a tap to no avail, then hit it with a bit of heat.... The stator is out as I cut the wires but the pickup is still in the case.... I only had heat on the pick up for a fraction and slightly, very slightly disfigured the unit but it looks ok... I was thinking of getting the stator rewound local ( as it would be cheaper than new ) and putting it back in the bike yet need to know if the pulse coil pick up is good before I do it other wise I'll just have to buy a whole new set up ( go genuine or Trail Tech). I was thinking the beat way to do this is to place the cover back on the bike with a few bolts just to hold it I place and give it a quick boot to see if it kicks and starts then shut it off... If it's starts then the coil pick up is still good and it's off to get the stator rewound.... What are your thoughts???
