A charging system malfunction can sneak up on without notice. A night after a nice ride, you head out to the bike to head to work, thumb the starter and … nothing. While you were whizzing about, something in the charging system failed, the stator, regulator/rectifier – or both. And when that happens, your bike’s electrical system drains the battery to keep everything up and running. And like the example here, you don’t find out until you go out for another ride.

Fortunately, Riders Discount has exactly what you need to service your machine’s changing system from Rick’s Motorsport Electrics. For most bikes, stators come with OEM-type connectors, making installation a snap, literally. And where required, a grommet that fits between the stator cover and the engine case is fitted as standard. All your need is a gasket, we have those, too.

Each stator is tested in-house by the Rick’s team before they’re boxed up and sent to us to be sure you get a stator that works right out of the box. Which brings us to the next point, the voltage regulator function of the charging system …

Usually, when the stator fails on your machine, the regulator/rectifier (R/R) steps in to take up the lack of power output from the stator, which then overheats the R/R and, over a short time, damages the circuitry within. So, you’ll replace the stator, only to continue having charging issues. For this reason, we always recommend replacing both items at the same time to be sure of a completely up-to-spec charging system.

To order yours, call us on 866.931.6644 ext 817, send a note to TJ via email; [email protected] with RICKS CHARGING SYSTEM in the subject line or just send a PM right here along with the exact model and year of your machine and we’ll get back to you right away!
