hi bill and welcome.please spend a few minutes to update your signiture and avitar.include your bikes details and where you live in the world.
its quite difficult to advice someone where to purchase things if they havnt a clue where they live.
hi bill,thanks for updating your profile.sometimes members live very close to-gether and are willing to help each other out for the cost of a beer and a burger.I am a working 66 yr old who began riding July 2009, rode about 2,800 miles on a 79CX500 that had 13250 miles when I got it.
I had to have it towed home, replaced the CDI (Cobram's purchase) and then it kept dying on me. Mechanic says I need to replace the stator. I am willing to try to do so myself, but I need help. I am clueless about modifying the almost right part, If I can't get the correct part, I will never get the bike running again.
You do NOT need to change your rotor, in fact if you do your bike won't start.
The CDI rotor has a button [brass I think] that tells the spark pulsers when to fire. The TI rotor does not have this button which is still required by the ignitec unit.
By all means fit the G8 stator instead of the G47.
The G8 will be just fine in your existing rotor so save the dollars on the rotor.
My bike runs a similar set up to this and runs well.
Sorry FADM, didn't mean to sound so abrupt. Had visions of DannyO ordering a stator he didn't need on ebay......
