Hi there
First time poster!
Anyway I have a 2005 blade with a dead stator. I found a brand new OEM one for $50 (bargain!) with the model number 31120-MEL-D22 (I think the same as 31120-MEL-D21) which is for the 2006-2007 I believe.

Now I searched all over the net and everything indicates that models from 2004-2007 use the same stator so it should be interchangeable, but I wanted to make sure so I called up literally about 9 different Honda spare parts dealers to check and they all said no, only due to the fact that the 04-05 blades use a different stator model (31100-Mel-305/31120-MEL-013), so they assumed that it was not compatible.

Now I turn to the knowledgeable fellows at this forum for a definite answer! Is it compatible or am I wasting my time?

Thanks alot!!

I thought it was something of a standard procedure to replace the crap '04/'05 stator with the better '06/'07 item anyway?
