    Need a new stator for my 94XR600R. Had a Ricky, it failed due to the insulation coming off the wires and shorting out.

    Looking at a Baja Designs rewind, but don't want my bike down.
    Prime riding here in Central Oregon right now. :clap
    It's running off the stock stator now and they don't want to rewind the Ricky.

    Any of you have any dealings with Caltric? Found them on ebay, have never heard of them.

    Also waiting for Ricky to return a message I left today regarding the wiring insulation to see if they have had problems and corrected them if they did. No reply yet. Still haven't ruled them out, depends how they handle things.
    Need at least 150w prefer 200+

    hey we had the same thing happen

    I thought about getting a different brand like the caltric, caltrex, etc..stators which are signifcantly cheaper...

    however after talking with mike at ricky stator they offered me a great deal on my second stator from them

    like you my exciter coils looked burned and possibly shorted as I was only getting 30 volts at kickover...

    so I got a new one and noticed the windings are now completely sealed in epoxy were as my old one was only wrapped in tape and glued

    Im hoping this extra protection helps

    works great again!

    cheers

    Hey Christian, what happened when you rewound yours? I'm thinking about tackling it myself if my carb tuning doesn't work.
    Thanks heaps for all advice so far. :freaky

    its pretty damn easy...

    If you have a stock bike and starting is hard...try jetting first...I reccomended the stock 60 pilot at 2.5 turns out and a 158 or 155main

    honda went overboard and jetted too fat, especially after the bike has ran a long time and soots up and loses a bit of compression you will never run clean or crisp with that jetting

    if this does not help your bike

    then the stator is a cinch...remove allen bolts...and plop cover off, stator is in cover with 3 10mm hex screws...undo that and pull the grommet off the cover and you can rewind or replace your stator easily...

    I rewound my stator twice and t worked, what didnt was the epoxy that I could find down here and it eventually cracked and failed however the stator still workd but it would only be a matter of time befire the wires shorted...

    cheers

    I've had very good luck with BD rewound stators, they make a 200w single output rewind now that I think is the best. I've always had good luck with RS stators also but I've only installed a few (I own a shop). I would never recomend an Electro Sport and I have never dealt with Caltric but the fact that no one has heard of them should give you pause.

    I just rewound my own and it works a treat,,,,today. Ordered a Ricky too just incase mine fails. Took 2 days to cut the shit off and rewind. Shoulder gets real tired after a couple hours of winding. I think it tooks about 5-6 hours winding to do it myself. time V money?

    Sorry for the mess of post, having trouble with the image site, as you can see all the steps to rebuilding my own stator
