replacing the stator in 99 Foreman 450ES

How much labour time does it take a Honda dealer to replace the stator in this machine.Can this be repaired yourself or do you need special tools

the only special tool needed is a flywheel puller, the rest is just basic hand tools. it is alittle time consuming, because of where it is located. in the rear of the engine. I have no ideal on time, if I had to guess I would say 2-3 hrs. Have you had the stator tested?

The stator went bad in my bike and a new one is PRICEY!
I found: rickystator.com and they helped me out a lot. Actually, I believe they are the one's that hooked me up with a guy in Alabama at "Custom Rewind" and he fixed me right up and was super nice-- their number is 800-798-7282 - www.customrewind.com. If you find that the stator is bad, check them out.

How about your regulator? It could be dead.It should be on the frame over your rear wheel,brake side. Just a wild guess I am far from a pro.

Yes, my regulator was bad too. You should definitely check that and it's easy to get too. There is a way to check it but you will have to get your manual and see how to do it.

My standard answer is "Invest the $50 in the Honda shop manual." it has all the test procedures for every thing on the machine, and very good trouble shooting in a logical step by step order. In the long run it is a lot cheaper and easier than changing expensive electrical parts.

If you're gonna be stupid, you gotta be tough.
