How do I test a CBR stator?

How do I test a CBR stator?

Take your electric meter set to DC volts and measure across the terminals on the battery. With the bike running it should be somewhere between 12 and 13 volts at idle. 3) Rev the engine, and measure the voltage at 4000 – 5000 RPM. It should climb to 13.9-15 V.

Can a stator overcharge?

It’s impossible for a stator output more voltage then it was designed to do. It would have to magically create more windings. A bad stator can in fact still charge but not very well so the actual answer to your question is that a stator is only capable of outputting less charge if it’s failing.

What causes a stator to burn up?

A bad diode in a rectifier will dump AC current into a system. The AC current heats up the stator and the heat destroys the insulation and ultimately carbonizes it turning it into a low resistance brick.

Why does my stator keep burning out?

The burned areas at a failed stator are the result of the failure, not the cause of the failure–the short between windings happens first and causes the heat that chars the wire. They just aren’t made very well, and aftermarket ones are made worse.

Will a bike run with a bad stator?

Without a stator, your motorcycle will not get any spark at all as your battery is not capable of supplying the appropriate power levels to generate a spark. As a result, if your stator is going bad your motorcycle will run very poorly. Eventually, your stator can prevent your motorcycle from starting at all.

How long should a motorcycle stator last?

Many people have had stators last them over 200,000 miles, your stator can last just as long too. The main reason that stators get burned is from high amperage. If you need higher amps, it will shorten the life of your stator.

How do you test a motorcycle stator?

Insert each probe into a stator socket. You should read around 0.2 to 0.5 ohms. If you show an open circuit with the “Open” or infinity reading or have higher resistance, then the stator is bad and you must replace it. If these tests all produce positive results, then the stator itself is good.
