    650 sx stator

    Hello, I broke the stator mount when I was splitting the case... has anyone else done this? Any solutions besides finding a new one? Can I just try an epoxy fix?
    Extremely new to this, but enjoying process.
    Really appreciate all the valuable info here.

    I didnt remove the screws securing the stator, before I seperated the case. So when I seperated the case I broke the stator

    650 sx stator

    CAVEAT: I don’t do this for a living, and there’s many people vastly more experienced on here, but I’ll give you my 100% UNinformed opinion, since nobody else seems to be responding yet.

    The primary purpose of those screws is to both hold the stator on and allow for timing advance (that’s why it’s slotted instead of just a round hole). It doesn’t have to hold a ton of weight.

    The amount of fastener gripping surface that broke off is, approximately, 1/4 of the total surface available and it will likely hold just fine with the 3/4 of the surface that is still available.

    There is a significant amount of vibration that occurs, such that I would be somewhat concerned that an epoxy weld could fail... and then you could (potentially) have that bit flailing around the inside of your flywheel wreaking havoc.

    If you wanted to return the gripping surface to near-normal, you could think about replacing the round washer with an appropriately-sized rectangular washer that you dremel’d down to fit in the curved slot. The advantage of this would be increased strength of the grip on the stator, the disadvantage would be that (unless you ground it perfectly) that it could be more difficult to adjust your timing, especially if you tried to do it with the flywheel still on. If you consider this option, probably use Loctite on the screw.

    If all of this seems like too much trouble, replacing the stator is always an option (as you mentioned)... albeit an expensive one.

    This is somewhat of a philosophical discussion, in that there’s a “right” way to do things and a “rigged” way to do things... only you know which of those types of people that you are.

    Damn that sux....such a nice clean stator. You could try buying a used/bad stator and swapping the mounting plate.
