Check your stator bolts!

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share my recent experience.


My bike seized in a corner last weekend. The kickstart was jammed and would make a metal on metal screech. I immediately thought worst case scenarios.


Stripped the engine down to the piston and everything looked fine, but motor was still jammed.


Proceeded to take the left cover off and found one of the stator bolts had unthreaded and rubbed up on the flywheel (about half of the bolt head was gone) and it had finally plugged into one of the holes and jammed the motor. Luckily I was crawling through this corner and seems to be no apparent damage.


Just a heads up to check those bolts out, all 3 stator bolts on my bike (2010) were loose.
