    I know this has probably been answered a million times, but what is the best high output stator for the 650R?

    Are they a pain to wire in?

    thanks

    Busy being a farmer !! Season has been good for us.
    Been doing the odd civil job for Senex out that way - Acrasia, Clifton Hills, Cordillo, Mungerranie They've got a fair spread on their leases now.
    Not much bike time - although plenty on mustering bikes. Got a conference in Adelaide in July and hope to get the time to ride down.

    Quick question: Do you have to pull the radiators off to take the header off?

    They freeze between the crankcase bush and the swing arm pin. Had to cut my swingarm off to get it out and then replace the swingarm. Good luck.
