Using an ST2 stator in squarecase.

hi all, has anyone used an ST2 stator in a squarecase? After some searching here found that the round cases accept them but no mention of the square.
Just put a bid on one on ebay but in hindsight it might have been a bit premature.
cheers, phil

Re: stator winding resistance

hi again. I had a similar problem once and if you are using a digital multimeter , go and get it a new 9 volt battery and you will see the numbers from the bike that you should. I did that recently and my static volts of battery went from fully charged at 14.8 vdc to 12.7 vdc. I then measured the li...

Re: stator winding resistance

legend, thanks peter. The resistance wire to wire should be about 1 ohm as it is essentially just a long piece of copper wire, but i just wanted to hear that i should have an open to chassis to confirm my problem, which was the same as yours. how you finding the euromotoelec one so far?

Re: top end noise

hi mate. i had the exact same thing on a 86o gt. sounded like a irregular tapping noise from the rear head. sorry to say, it turned out to be a big end. the easiest way to tell is whip off the front cyl and barrel. if the piston is scored and has shiny bits in the skirt, big end.

Re: MHR alternator

well, after a bit of research and experimentation, i have found some earlier roundcase bevel diagrames with the 3 wire alternator , and they either connect the red with one of the yellows, or the red to the battery cable which also plugs into the reg. i have tried both, and now get minimal charge ou...

Re: GT/SD/SS Special

hi mate, seems you've had over 300 views and no one say thats fucking awesome! did you rotate the engine in the frame to give the tail the jacked up look? and how did you manage to increase the off set of the chain to clear the tyre? nice bike, i love modified bikes.
