Mike - I just looked at a parts fiche. The pegs are square. Measure your square and length. Post it. We can all look around various makes and models! Too bad you donít live in Virginia, USA!

TechTalk / Footpeg rubbers
« Last post by MikeScoot on Today at 05:08:33 AM »
Anyone know what fits?
So far I have learnt that RD30LC ones fit as do XJ650 ones, but there must be more options. Anyone know? Non Yamaha is fine for me - anything that will fit over the front pegs.
Cheers,
Mike

I pulled the cover today. Of course there was blue RTV everywhere.  ::)

After cleaning up the RTV mess I found the gasket was damaged and the thread of the case were stripped in one hole. After disconnecting the harness the was cleaned up and the old stator removed. It was completely toasted on the reverse side. It is a wonder it generated power at all.

After fitting the new stator I made a few measurements. The stator core is about 4mm thicker than the OEM. That puts the screw heads that hold it 4mm closer to the flywheel/rotor. If someone has added longer bolts for the starter clutch this stator will put the screw heads close to the protruding bolts.

Of course the seals on the OEM stator leads were molded on. I am cutting a few layers of 1/8" BUNA-N to make new seals.

I ordered a new 11H-15451-11-00 gasket. In the meantime the seals will be made and the stripped hole repaired.

I made use of the male/female connectors and connected the 3 stator wires to the white plastic connector. My Reg/Rec got the male side of the white connector. I simply snapped them together. If I need to change or remove a component, itís unplug and detach.

General Board / 1983 Wiring Behind Headlight
« Last post by kevin g on January 25, 2020, 12:02:39 PM »
I find the rubber pouch behind the headlight that all of the wiring is stuffed into rather annoying.  Has anyone come up with a good way to clean it up?  I am looking at various black plastic boxes that are intended to be used for electronics enclosures.  I mocked up the one I thought would work but now see it is probably to small to fit all of the connectors and excess cable length.

The added harness to extend the headlight and turn signal wires seems like it is over a foot longer than it needs to be so I may shorten it.

Any ideas?

The ordered stator arrived.

I believe I am going to add something to it. I see that the wire is coated as it should be. I also noticed the complete absence of a conformal coating on the wire at each pole to immobilize the wires. Over time vibration encourages wear at the contact points of the wires. In the olden days stator or rotors were not only wound with coated wire but often had layers of glass or polyester fabric included. This was to prevent the wear and dampen vibration. In later years the conformal coating method became prevalent. Now they don't bother with either.

I will add a conformal coating to the poles on the stator to immobilize the wires. This is especially needed for the wire runs between the poles on the obverse side.

I'll have to go research which class (I think class F is dielectric and good to 325*F) and type to use. In the meantime I can fit it and get the connector ready.

Some of the Chinese sellers ship through a place in the US. Mine shipped from Texas.
The best R/R that i have found, I get from roadstercycle.com.

TechTalk / Re: Shindengen SH775 Regulator/Rectifier install and relocation

I have a stator from an Africa Twin on the way. There is another thread where a ROV'r (MikeScoot) installed one in a bike he is reviving.
It's not me that is using the Africa Twin stator. I ordered one for a Kawasaki but have not yet installed it (too busy sorting other engine issues).

I got mine (STATOR)  through Ebay; "Generator Stator Coil For Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 1995-1997 ZZR600 ZX600 90-05 TZ5". It looks very similar to the pic posted on the 1983 Getting 11.96 volts thread. There were quite a few on Ebay and all very reasonably priced. The ad. seemed a bit deceptive though. It appeared the part was held locally (Western Australia) but in fact it came from Hong Kong. It was, however, delivered quite quickly.

Within a day or two I will advise whether it fits.

If the stator is good and the SH775 is good I should be back in business by lunch time tomorrow.
