Thread: RMStator vs Electrosport Stator?

    Default RMStator vs Electrosport Stator?

    OK, payday is tomorrow, I am buying a new stator for my 750E but am having trouble deciding which one to get. Is the Electrosport worth extra $25? Are there any pros or cons to each?

    Lastly, if there's one within 50 miles of Chicago, let me know, I'd probaly pay a premium to go get it faster.

    I'm going to replace the r/r with the honda 6 wire unit I have at the same time.

    Default Never used RMStator...

    But replaced my OEM stator with one from Electro which lasted about a season before the wire insulation split just beyond the rubber gasket where they leave stator cover. Resulted in short.

    Electro warranteed the stator though and replaced at no charge....

    I've used RM Stators on my GS550 and Honda VT750. They've lasted over 3 years with no problems.

    ok, stupid question: is the stator cover gasket the same as the magneto cover gasket?

    I'm looking at part number 1148349210 for my GS750EZ

    And where can I but a set of hex head screws for this cover?

    Yes, most parts fiches call it a magneto cover gasket, "GASKET, MAG COVER", or similar.

    I've used both the RMStator and the Electrosport stator part. I had to RMA the RMStator part but they guaranteed it, no problem. It's now in my parts stash as a spare. I installed the Electrosport part a couple months ago and so far, so good.

    Doesn't Mr.Robert Barr <http://cycleorings.com> sell hex bolts too? There are kits all over the ebay stores, but I've never tried them.

    EDIT: Oops, sorry. Mr. Robert Barr sells hex bolts for the intake boots.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Update: have to applaud RMStator for the customer service thus far. I bought it on Ebay at 9:15am. I called them to confirm the model per their email. Mike from RM called me back five minutes later to verify I had the 16vTSCC and it was shipped by 9:50am. Now that's fast!

    I agree Mr. MikeG. I've talked to RMStator on the phone a few times and they are really nice folks. All the best to you and your bike.

    The Electrosport stator that I received didn't have very long leads coming off of it so it wasn't even close to an exact replacement. Instead of lenghtening the leads I changed the routing of the wires. Stator has been working good so far.....

    Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,the stator gods are smiling down on the stator suppliers like RMStator and Electrosport..................they're selling a few for sure.............
    I just ordered a stator and rectifier from RMStator for my 1984 GS750E myself.
    Had several conversations to ensure they were sending the right stator which took a bit longer than expected. Both Sean and Mike seemed knowledgeable and quite willing to spend some time with the customer.
    Shipped out today via UPS and got an email with a pro (tracking) number.
    So far so good.
    Just waiting for the part to come in.

    You are right Mr. JayH. I forgot to mention this. My Electrosport stator had shorter output wires too. It's a good thing my r/r wires were long enough. The RMStator wires were plenty long.
