Moose stator for YZ450F

10 posts in this topic

I have acquired a Moose stator that Baja Designs sells. I am planning on running the 08 Baja 500 and wanted it to power a stock WR450F headlight in the event I am unable to finish before the sun sets. I know this is not a very powerful stator but aside from the $500+ ELine stator there doesn't seek to be anything else for the YZ450Fs. I have been told though that the Moose stator is not reliable under Baja conditions. Does anyone have any insight or even other suggestions.

i bought the Moose loighting stator for my 04 YZ450F. It is not the most powerful thing but it will get you out of trouble. It is not that bright on idle but once you are going it seems to be pretty good. I am running a 07 WR headlight and a LCD real taillight/breaklight.

Do some searches for Electrosport stators. They are actually the ones that produce the Moose stuff. The only thing with electrosport stuff is that it is very hit or miss. I sell and install probably 10-12 of them a summer and have had very few problems. And most of the time if I have a problem it's not that it goes bad, it's that it comes from teh factory bad, but they are good for replacement.

I personally run one on my yzf426 supermoto and I love it. It works great!

man thats Good to hear because I just installed one in my YZ400 Supemoto.

I have a cyclope headlight and its pretty dim at idle but works good at speed.

I figured the Electrosport stator was the same as the Moose - just didn't know for sure. I think this thread now though is mute because I just got an ELine 200w stator that is proven in Baja so now I am going to sell the Moose stator.

Thanks for everyone's input but I got an ELine 200w stator so I am not concerned anymore about the Moose stator's reliability.

I reread this thread and hopefully I didn't miss it, but what year YZ450 are you lighting up?

do you need to get a bigger lighting flywheel to go with the more powerful stator? how come trail tech doesn't make a stator for the yz-f?

I have an 03 YZ450F - the ELine stator is a complete case/cover and the stator electronics are external (to the flywheel). Can't answer for Trailtech but besides the Moose (which is made by Electro something or another) the ELine is the only one I found and it is Baja proven. New they are $500+ - I got a create deal from a guy on Thumpertalk.
