My 99 ZR500 EFI died on the trail. It is at the dealer now, confirmed that the stator has failed. No prior symptoms, just hard failure. Won't start.

I spoke with Stator Corp today in MA. They have a decent price ($199 vs $500 new) and 2-yr warranty.

However, just wondering if rewound stators are reliable. Anyone have advice (good or bad) for rewound stators?

I plan to add washers and drill holes for air flow, per many posts on this forum. Just want to prevent from breaking down again (NO FUN!).

I'm taking your advice. I bought a NEW stator from Arctic Cat. I located many posts of riders who had theirs rewound and failed within a short amount of miles.

And yes, I'm having the holes drilled into the housing for air flow.

I did save roughly $75 by buying the part at an online AC parts warehouse. They assure me it is NEW and OEM, nothing used or rewound.

But, OUCH, that was expensive.
