    Did you read the description for the Race Tech. All of 20% over the OE stator. Wooo Hooo. BFD.

    The Rickey Stator is a tried and trusted stator. I built a fellas XR600 last December and the Rickey Stator grommet was in the wrong place. A replacement was sent out with no questions asked. Yeah they hold up and have great customer service to boot.

    has anyone tried the stator of a 640 adv ?

    I am running the stock as well and it's not sufficient for the headlight and heated grips

    another vote for Ricky stator, a good company and stand behind their products.

    I had one fail after owning it for over a year (one year stated warranty), and had some questions about it, and before the conversation went to replacing it, Mark volunteered to send me out one that day so down time would be minimized.Plus they wanted to check mine out and see where the failure was.

    I've heard of other above and beyond stories from them.

    My experience with Ricky Stators has been nothing but good. I like the way you can connect them for dual or single output. I've installed several of these and have never had any trouble with them. Another plus is that you'll still have your stock stator to do with as you please.

    Having said that my favorite stator is the Baja Designs re-wind. They do a Mil-Spec job of it and now you can get them wired for single output. However, you must descide when you order (unlike the Ricky) if you want 125w x 2 or 200w x 1. I think 200w single output is the way to go.

    BD or Ricky, you'll be well served by ether one, but I have a long history with BD and I think the quality of their work sets the bar pretty high, and I've never had one fail. Although, to be fair I've never had a Ricky fail ether but I have 10x more BD stators in the field.

    hello from australia.i am seeking xriders opinion about bd and ricky stators as he seems to be extremely knowledgeful with electrics.i have a 2004 xr650r(australian version) and i am at a loss with the whole situation,as bike electrickery is so not my forte.i have just removed what i believe is the original stator,and it has 7 wires exiting it and all spokes are wound.the wire colours are...black/red,brown as usual, and white,yellow,pink,green and blue with yellow stripe.i am going to purchase a rs or bd stator.i wish to keep it basically standard,running both the ac and dc circuits.i would like to stick to cap as i dont see the need for battery.i will fit led indicators and stop/tail lights and just replace headlight with 60/55 hallogen bulb running of ac circuit,as i have read many of your posts,and i feel it is the way for me to go.i believe you feel the aus version is similar to a dsk anyway? i will have more than enough power to add any desired lighting in the future from either source (most likely ac).i would surely appreciate your thoughts and opinion on this matter,including parts required.i will also run new ac reg and reg/rec and cap,that way i feel the system will be like new with good reliability.the bike is 8 years old and only5500km young and presents very well,so i like to keep it looking original with small customising to my taste and for betterment.sorry about the big ramble,and i patiently wait your advice. cheers,dale.

    Yes, we do produce a stator with 20% output increase over the stock stator. Our stator has dual 100W outputs, you can charge a battery easily for a DC system, or run the entire lighting system.

    Just a heads up, Rickey Stator uses the same winding configuration we do. Their website says 200W...what that means is 2x 100W outputs. You can see in the picture on their website the stator has a 2-pin connector, and then 6 bullet connectors. The 2-pin connector is the pickup/pulser coil, the Red & Black wires are the ignition source coil, and the other 4 wires are 2 separate lighting/charging coils.

    I hope people don't think our parts aren't high quality because we're cost competitive. Give us a shot...you won't disappointed in our warranty, support, and high quality stators.
