Flywheel? Stator? Help!
Got a 2002 CBR 954rr..Changed the stator and cover everything fine. Week later, riding with my friend, 1hr into the ride, I hear something pop loose...started rattling but still running..
Immediately pull over. and pull the stator cover because there's something rattling in there. Turns out the 4 hex bolts holding the stator on the cover have come loose but all are still there. It was obvious that the stator had been loose and hitting flywheel..Mmmm..
Upon inspection of the stator cover, I see a perfect ring has popped off the stator cover, about 1/4" thick. I remove the shrapnel piece and replace the stator with locktight (this time) into the 4 bolts and replace the cover. Started the bike back up and it ran the sound sounded a little better...
As I drove back home, i started hearing a clicking sound, every few miles..then 10 miles out..it shuts down and I coast trying to start again. It never starts , even tried to jump it. Called a tow truck and brought it home.
Tried to start it when I got it home..fired up but still that sound. Pulled the cover again and 2 bolts fell out and the other 2 heads were shaved and stator bent. It looks like the flywheel shredded the stator off!
Question is. Did i not tighten the 4 bolts tight enough and they rattled loose?with no liquid tight?
Or is my flywheel bent from a lay down on that side prior to me getting it?
