I Ride: Husaberg 400 FE
stator life

Hello Husa Bergs.
After a whole month of researching "normal" Husaberg problems, it looks like the stators burn out every so often. Back around 1980 Kawasaki went to huge lengths to lessen "flywheel" effect, to allow engines to rev up faster, and lower overall weight. My `81 KZ1000, with a few mods, zinged to red line very rapidly. One of Kawa`s innovations was to make the stator half the size compared to the `70s models, with much denser windings. It worked as long as the connections were perfect. As my SPORT-touring mount, after a fast 25,000 kms, my stator was shot. A factory mechanic / machinist found a good fix. Look at the spaghetti leading out of your stator cover. It ends in a big connector. Try shortening the wires while cutting off the connectors. Then you make real soldered joins in the wires instead. That big plug in can't help ruining the flow of current. Make darn sure the wires are still correctly lined!
After doing this to a few bikes we found the stators lasted the life of the bike easily. The bikes had better top speed also with a little imagination. My replacement stator was still doing fine when my friend sold my old bike at 180,000 kms.
The 400 FE now residing here is getting this mod. Hope this helps! L
