Has my stator already been uprated?

Recommended Posts

I was doing the valve clearances on my XR650R yesterday and when I took the ignition cover off I noticed that all the poles on the stator were wrapped in wire. The stuff I have read online suggests that only their should be 2 spark coils and 4 generator coils. Im hoping mine is already uprated its an Australian model BTW.

Cheers

Scott

is there any way of loading it up to test without risking damage?

Just add another headlight in parallel with the existing one. That or just try a higher wattage bulb. No worries about damaging anything. Just try it. The regulator works by shorting out the coil. Can't get a larger load than that. If it can't handle it, the bulb will just be dim.
