      Or you can buy new ones for about $170 plug and play. (I just changed mine again last week).

        Yeah was thinking that but I was just checking on here if some was or knew a auto spark first.

        Sounds like a good option where abouts did you get it from ?

          I bought a random generic eBay one for about $150 2 years ago which just fried itself a few weeks back.


          This time I've gone for a 'ricks stator'. They seem to have good reviews for options as opposed to genuine. I have an 02 R1 which is known to root stators tho anyway.

          What bike is it for? Are you 100% it's your stator?

            It's a 2000 ZX12R I'm not 100% it is the stator resistances are .5 to .7 it puts out about 100v AC @ 4000rpm between the 3 phases but all 3 phases ground to the case. On the battery @4000rpm it is get 12.6v with headlights off 13.6v. I have replaced the r/r thinking that was it but no change my next step is a current draw test before I take the case off.

              Have you had a look on the kawasakiworld.com forums? There's a fair bit of info there about the ZX12 stator issues

                  Grounding to the case is a bad thing 12.6volts lights on or off are not good things. It may be worth getting the cover off and having a look at the wiring just to make sure the connection leads haven't rubbed through somewhere.

                      We got ours done at Motorcycle Masters, they run an exchange program with a rewind company out of Geelong. If you're lucky they'll have a rewind in stock and just swap it over. Very happy with them.

                        On the internet you can be anyone you want.
                        It's surprising that so many people choose to stick with "moron"

                          2 out of 5 from them were no good and they wouldn't swap. On the first i didn't check and fitted it up... bike ran for 10 minutes before it shat itself. No exchanges policy so ended up getting a 2nd hand unit which worked, no change to anything on bike. On the second, i checked it when i got home before fitting it up. it was out of spec by a lot. went back about an hour later and again no swaps. They're ok i guess but don't make my mistake, check it before you leave the store.

                              I found this thread the other day after my bike left me Free way side for a 'rest'

                              just gone 2yo ZX10r (out of warranty) after a look over confirmed fried Stator and Regulator.
                              Contacting Kawasaki to see if they can help me out (can only ask right)

                              Otherwise have also been advised to contact Ricks Stators.

                              Will update when Sorted. 1 week off the commute and I'm missing her
