    Default Stator Question, 850/1100 fixings

    Has anybody fitted an 850 stator to an 1100, I started to swap them out only to find that the screws are a different size, can I just drill them out to fit anybody done that ? I would simply swap the cases over intact, but the one with the decent stator is cracked and split.

    What year 850??
    If 78-79, those are 12 pole stators, and everything '80 and after are 18pole, so magnets in rotor will not align.

    And anyway, I think the 1100stators are wider than 850s, so another sort of not aligning with the magnets on rotor.

    I have carried a spare stator for my 1100g to rally, and was told was not useable on an 850 that needed one. I dont know specifically why not.

    Had 850G for 14 years. Now have GK since 2005.
    GK at IndyMotoGP Suzuki Display... ... GK on GSResources Page ... ... Euro Trash Ego Machine .. ..3 mo'cykls.

    1100 stators are definitely a greater diameter than 850 ones.

    If you go to one of the many OEM parts sites like Partzilla you can look up the stator for your bike and see what other bikes used the same PN. In this case the 850 does not use the same stator as the 1100
