Re: Putting Inline Fuses Between Stator and R/R To Prevent Burning Stator?
Well so on Friday I got my stator in the mail, I installed it, replaced the gasket etc, made sure the oil level was topped off and its running like a dream. Voltages across the battery terminals are no higher than 14.45v when charging, and no lower than about 13.2v when running it seems.
I guess here is the golden question, will a malfunctioning R/R cause the windings on a stator to burn through (on 3 different stators!)?
bladeracer you are the first to mention that oil does nothing to cool the stator :S the guys at the local shop mentioned the same thing (oil weight, type of oil etc). i guess i cannot be too quick to jump to conclusions...
well on Monday or Tuesday when the new R/R comes (Electrosport Industries told me the part was updated, beefier design that is much more reliable), I will install it regardless and see how everything goes. For now it seems to be running OK, but I won't go on any long rides until I have the new R/R in there for peace of mind.
