Has anyone come up with a fix or been successful with an rmstator?
I purchased a non running 2002 FC 550 earlier this year with a bad SEM stator and purchased the rmstator replacement, chalked the backfiring up to a dead carb (retro fit FCR Production carb, which ended up actually being nearly dead)
Ended up replacing all the bearings and intake valves, even bought a jet kit from Taffy, but still have this backfiring issue
Thanks in advance
Did anyone get this issue sorted?
I picked up one of the rm stators aswell, when I also bought a "beefy" Starter from Taffy, and new battery - Same issue - Backfire through the carb...
Before searching the forum, I also thought, Carb too lean, and/or valve timing issue. Now I have triple checked everything and reground valves, reset clearances, and have completely rebuilt the carb. Compression is good, sprak is good, but timing is a mile out.
I too did the whole "turn the stator without the bolts in", and managed to get it to run for a bit, but as someone already said, it is like 60 degrees out, when the bolts are put in...
Is it wired wrong internally, or have they put the mounting holes in the wrong place>?
