My bikes stator was sort of killed by my muffler about a year ago.

Bike runs 2 into 1 with a straight through harley muffler. This was a bit loud so I made a bundle of tubes baffle and welded that into the end followed by a roll of budgie wire and fibreglass sheet. Well the fibreglass broke up in a couple of days and compacted into the end of the muffler choking the exhaust.

Needless to say the next morning the bike wouldn't start and I wound up flattening the battery. The alternator obviously took exception to being asked to recharge a discharged battery and the charging windings went dead to earth.

Fitted a G8 stator and a Raymodule to power the ignition and it's been good since.
