How much does it cost to replace a stator on a Harley?
5,000 service ’14 Ultra Limited, $397 with synthetics. ’05 Heritage Classic stator replacement, $115.
How hard is it to replace a stator?
Replacing the stator is not too complicated and requires a socket set and some heat resistant gasket repair silicone only. On 2006-07 Honda Fireblades the stator is located on the left hand side behind the crash protector.
How long does it take to replace a Harley stator?
I bet a good tech can do a stator change in less then 3 hours and a belt change would take 6 or 7 hours. If your belt has been properly maintained it should go over a 100,000 easily.
How long does it take to change a stator?
A good tech can change a stator in 3 hours and a belt in 6 or 7 hours. Your belt should go over 100,000 if it has been properly maintained.
What would cause a stator to go bad?
There are a few things that may cause a stator to fail. Too heavy of a load when operating accessories (winch,heated grips,headlights, etc). If working several of these items at one time (plowing/pulling/possibly stuck at night) you would overload the system. This could cause either the stator or rectifier to fry.
How do you test a stator on a Harley Davidson?
Stator IB test or Ground Check:
- Switch your multi-meter to Ohm x 1 scale.
- Probe each stator wire with your positive lead on multi-meter and the negative to ground.
- There should be no continuity to ground on either wire.
- If there is continuity to ground, your stator is shorted to ground.
What are the signs of a bad stator?
The most obvious symptoms of a bad motorcycle stator include no spark, weak spark, or intermittent spark (also known as misfiring). Hard starts and a poorly running engine can also be clues that your stator needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
How do I know if my stator or rectifier is bad?
Key Signs to Look For You won’t have any trouble diagnosing the faulty regulator rectifier if the battery is the cause. You’ll note signs right away like poor starts, fluctuating meter readings, and dimmed headlights. around 13 volts, the bike will start to drain the battery.
How much does stator replacement cost?
The R/R and stator are indeed about $150 each ($152 and $158, plus tax comes to about $330), plus the gasket for the stator cover.
Will a bad stator drain a battery?
As far as the battery, yes a bad stator/regulator can destroy a new battery. If it’s run at a very low voltage without being recharged then it can be destroyed. It actually happens all the time. In most cases if we replace a stator or regulator the battery has to be changed as well as it won’t hold a charge.
How do I know if my stator is working?
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.
Do you have to drain oil to change stator?
No, you shouldn’t need to even on a side stand. You might get a little oil out, but not a lot.
