 Mk1 (08)
Colour coded topbox and panniers
MRA Vario Screen
Knuckle Deflectors
Pyramid rear Hugger
Fender Extender
Oxford Heated Grips
Tom Tom Sat Nav
Scottoiler
Ohlin Front Springs & Rear Shock
Avon Storms
The best mods were : Ohlin front Springs : MRA Screen : Heated Grips.
Right away from new, I had Michelin PR2s, then 3s, then 4s and 5s. Thought I would have a change and find the Avon's very good indeed,
5000 miles on them and still lots of tread left. Bike still going strong (76,800 mls).. :046:

 :182: If I was a gambling man I'd wager no more than one maybe less, the SC58 is better on stators than the myth.

I bet it depends on whether he has had the Honda upgraded one complete with new flywheel ( have seen a report for 60,000 miles for this combination) or just the cheaper stator only option from an independent manufacture/supplier.

Much has been written on stator failure not just the SC58 and not just Honda. Neither the stator manufacturers nor the motorcycle manufacturers are letting on what the real fault is. As you say under warranty Honda replace the stator and the flywheel which leads me to wonder if the fault is with the flywheel and not the stator or, is the fault really with both? Maybe Honda replaced the flywheel and the stator because they wanted to protect their reputation with the customer feel good that comes with having a had a £1,000.00 repair on Honda. Then again maybe Honda just didn't know.

How is it nobody seems to know what the difference is between the original factory fitted parts and the warranty replacements?

My bike mechanic/MOT tester said the stator will be fine so long as it’s been fitted correctly. Maybe something happened when the MK1 SC58 was built in Italy? I think the MK2 SC64 was built in Thailand.

I think the next mod I’m going to put on my Biffer is a volt meter.
