RMSTATOR - good/bad...heard of them???

Anyone have any experience with RMStator? I've seen their stators advertised on eBay and was curious about the quality. I asked them what brand they were and they said they were RMstator brand.

Well, I put one in my crf150f bbr bike and have had nothing but problems. Turns out it doesn't put out the rated current (amps). It works, but turn on the headlight and the whole system dies. Ran some tests at the shop to make sure and called them. Mike and the owner said i could pull the stator, send it to them and they would check if it put out any power. If it did, I had to pay $20 plus shipping to get it back. Hmmm. I explained that it did put out power, but that it died when a load was put on it. Well, in typical French Canadian form, they took no responsibility and stood by their policy. I didn't threaten them but reminded them about there 1 year warranty and said I had other electronics companies just send a new one regardless. Mike said he would have a used stator on his shelf that was useless. I took pity on him as i know exactly what he was talking about. Right. So, my guess is these are taiwanese crap stators and they know it, but the almighty Ca dollar talks. Well, I will try again to get a refund as I am not relying on this while i'm out riding. Going US made-if I can.

A DIY rewind will cost you <$30 in parts.

      I just bought a 2012 xr650l and it starts and runs great until about 4000 rpm give or take (I’m guessing) it feels like it spits and pukes. Also when releasing the throttle the exhaust pops and hiccups. I am calling the dealership to ask if they are willing to fix the problem as I just purchased from them yesterday but I am curious as to what the problem could be in case they do not offer to help for my “as is” purchase. I have read a couple other topics on here that talk about the vacuum lines being hooked up to an air cut diaphram but I don’t know what that is. The smog delete has been done on this bike as well as a slip on dg exhaust and the side cover has a bunch of holes drilled in it exposing the air filter. The battery has also been relocated. My question is what jetting should I have at 2000 feet? I am planning on opening up the carb to see what the idle jet and main jet are and if they were even changed from stock. Also if someone knows about the air cut being hooked up to vacuum and can supply pictures that would be very helpful. I know that the smog block off kits just plug the vacuum holes and the air cut usually gets disconnected. Thanks.
