magneto busted!

Recommended Posts

iv managed to inflict some fatal damage to the magneto/stator (the copper windings) on my 2002 wr250 while pulling off the rotor. (i screwed in the puller bolts in a little too far 🙂 ).

is there an afternmarket magneto available? the genuine yamaha one will cost me $400AUS 🙂 which is a small fortune considering all i was doing was replacing a $50 cam chain. im hoping there is a cheaper alterntative out there. iv done some searching on the net but havnt found anything yet.

yeh point taken. but the puller i was using worked fine, it was its operator that didnt really pay attention to detail.

It is only enameled wire.Try finding an electric motor repair shop-they might be able to rewind the stator for you.I have done it a few times and it is rather easy to do.

Also there are a few stator repair shops in California but shipping for you might be prohivitively expensive.
