SEM survey

you lads know that i live in a damp climate and have had a lot of luck with the SEM in my first 3 years of ownership.

as the 'document' says-i drill the bottom of the crankcase and fit a split pin loosely. petroleom jelly the stator. run the wires up through a fresh black tube which i 'shepherds crook' at the top, silicon, and clean all contacts.

no trouble in 3+ years.

does anyone else do the saame end then find that their SEM loves it all! condensation play a part?

let me know?

regards

Taffy, Ive owned a '00 FE501 and have never taken the cover off yet, let alone drill holes in it. But the '96 FE600 I was always taking the cover off after every wash.

SEM 1: 2.5 year The cover of every second wash and some thin oil on it
The stator cracked but it worked well till the magnetic material come loose from the rotor.

SEM 2: 4 months before cracking and lack of functionality. The cover of every wash and usage of thin oil as Husaberg recommends.

The quality seems to play a role too.

Taffy, I think it is bad luck / Friday afternoon production syndrome.
My '96 FE600 stator had more rewinds than a Paris Hilton bootleg porn video yet the '00 FE501 as mentioned before, hasn't even had the cover off.

Cheers

My 2002 case fills with water after rain or washing it. So i remove the cover and spray WD-40 in to displace the water and then put the cover back on.

There is some rust starting to appear on the laminations however.

I lost the o-ring but I think this actually helped the water drain out. The hole in the base thing sounds the best way to let it drain, I spose u could then spray WD-40 up the hole without removing the cover which would help.

Haven't drilled a hole in the cover but I do take the cover off after each ride to inspect for moisture and sometimes give a little spray of WD-40. No problems so far but my bike only has approx. 2,000 miles on it.

Taffy, not sure why my 2002 bike was getting water behind the cover, but after I lost one SEM to apparent corrosion problems, I drilled "the hole" in the cover and have not had a problem since, (with the stator anyway). The stator looks really good since I've done that. BD

another thing. please edit your post if doing things 'your way' cost you an SEM unit. i'm unable to tell from the posts whether you all have experience of the units failing.

cheers BD and mikst-and all for replying.

hi Taffy, glad to hear you made it back O.K.!

I have never had moisture or rust in the stator or armature of my 2000 501, but I have had the epoxy crack around a magnet in 1 of the armatures.

Here is a thread where I posted my data.

cheers,
