This is the stuff I used a few weeks back when I replaced my stator .............

Good stuff. Degrease surfaces, tiny film on both, let dry for 15 mins, assemble.

Surprise, surprise! Nothing wrong with the CBR stator - looks like it's been replaced recently but not by an electrically competent person, judging by the bodged wiring:-

Needless to say I'll be returning to the garage with my gas-soldering iron and some heat-shrink sleeving as soon as the new gasket arrives  :001:

Cheers should I rename this post to "New Member of a Suspect Stator Club"? lol

The really dumb thing on my part was to jump to the conclusion that the stator 'must be faulty' without FIRST checking the wiring out!  But in a way it's not time or money (on the gasket) wasted cos I now have learnt how to remove a Honda stator and that experience will ge invaluable when my Biffer one decides to give up the ghost  :031:

How about that for a bodge! Fingers crossed the same culprit has not been at work elsewhere on the bike.

Exactly! Can't believe how some idiots think you can achieve permanent and electrically sound connections just by twisting 2 cables together and covering with insulating tape lol.  I'm never happy unless I've either used crimp connectors or a soldering iron but then I am a former electronics wireman & technician.  That's why I'm kicking myself that I assumed that the stator was faulty when I was getting those dodgy resistance / continuity readings... If I'd been methodical in my diagnostics I would have found that the breaks in the cables were actually in the external wiring not within the stator windings  :087:

No idea what caused the meltdown because it was like that already. But that explains the open circuit meter readings between the 3 yellow stator wires. Have removed the molex plug and socket now and redone the cabling using crimp connectors. All 3 coil readings good now (0.2 ohms) and battery charging at 14.4 volts with engine running...
