350 EXC Stator Issue
I have a stator issue, and am curious if anyone else has experienced the stator pickup breaking? My issue has happened twice on my 350EXC. Both times I was riding on pavement, at around 75 mph. I had kept the speed up for about 15 miles, on slight inclines. All of a sudden, it dies because the stator pickup has a meltdown. The bike is geared a lot lower than stock, so I assume I was nearing its top speed. I think the pickup might have overheated to the point where the copper inside caused the plastic case to bulge out and the rotor caught it, but I am not sure. Both of these pictures are different stators with the same breakage. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this issue – going forward, I am planning on not going as fast on my KTM, but if anyone has had this issue and solved it, I would appreciate your info.
