Looking for stator rewind Korea

Hi everyone,

I have a duff yamaha stator. Currently in South Korea. I have removed the old copper coil and am TRYING to wrap a new one on but I keep scratching off the very thin coating of the wire!

So, looking for someone in Seoul or surroundings who might be able to re-wire it for me. (I'm currently a bit north of Seoul).

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Nick

Never been! but did a little research for you- hope some of this might provide an answer:

Some 100 miles south of you in Taejon-
Hankook Motor Trading Co., Ltd.
33-29, MunChang-1dong, Chung-gu
Taejon 301-021
Korea
+82 (42) 252-3131
+82 (42) 226-6748
+82 (42) 253-3132 Fax
is an authorized Yamaha imported/dealership

another site
http://www.yamaha-motor.co.jp/global/link/index.html

Maybe contact a member of the Horizons Communities in Japan (nearest I think)

Korean Motorcycle Forum

South Korea Yellow Pages

Honda wrong brand but might know where

Korea Expats Information -

Found this in a forum: " First, if you're in Seoul, hop on the orange or blue line and head to Chungmuro Station. This area, called 'Tway-gay-ro', is the home of imported bikes in Korea." There may well me mechanics there- Any Taxi driver should also be able to take you there/other place

Travellers Help / information line dial 1330 in Seoul or +1330 if outside Seoul - it's a 24/7 service local call rates - bilingual operators

Korean other Bike Forum here

Maybe consider electronic repair shops? "Yongsan Electronics Market, located in the Yongsan area not far from Itaewon, is the number one place to go for all your computer and electronics needs. Hundreds of shops are located in over 20 buildings in the market
Subway line 1, Yongsan Station. Shuttle bus #3 (starts at the Hyatt Hotel) goes to Yongsan Electronics Market"
Or go have a coffee at the Hyatt and ask for help at the Concierge desk - full of local knowledge!
Good luck

I was in that area yesterday looking for a bike. Just like the Western World, most shops are closed on Sundays. There are mechanics there. I don't know how good any of them are. I'm a couple hours away from Seoul but I need a bike. I'm hoping to find something I can't get in the US.

Used Japanese bikes are more expensive than new Korean bikes, so good luck! Let us know what you find. It could be contacting Japan. Korea didn't start building cars until the 1970s and that's hindered them.

Thanks Dave!

Yeah, I'd looked in the shops, they were all a bit useless - though very willing and friendly, but even though the stator was burnt suggested a host of other things, including, oil (?), battery, spark plug and injector, and probably even tires, even though quite clearly the stator was not the colour and construction it once was!

Anyone who understood told me that they would not rewind it or knew of anyone who could..."only in Seoul" was one answer.

So I re-wound it myself, and that was some job. just tried it and the bike is still frazzled, so now I'm stumped, charging voltage was 16v or more, so perhaps the reg/rec is stuffed, maybe why the stator had burnt out?? I have checked the rectifier's continuity which seems fine.....and as the battery is flat I can't check much else as I can't run the bike just now without the charging circuit connected.

Maybe I did a shoddy job on the stator.....though I'd expect the voltage to be low I suppose....the couple of shops in my town are friendly enough though so perhaps I can try my r/r on their bike and see if it blows up too?!!

Did you find a bike? They aren't cheap, even the crappy daeshins scooters are over $2000.

Yeah, everyone is friendly. I've seen a lot of small Yamahas here but I'm not surprised that you had a problem. Taking a Korean with you to translate would make a world of difference but you have to find a Korean that knows a bit of technical words. Otherwise, like you found, your stator blew up because you need new tires.

I'm sure you post on the Yammie board so hopefully someone can help.

How long are you here for? I went to Busan this weekend to meet Klaus and Tormod who are riding round the world on a pair of 1937 Nimbus with sidecars.

Great guys!

Madness! Those guys really are bonkers!

OK, seems like it might actually be fixed, stator is putting out good AC power....the problem after the refit was (hopefully) just a completely flat battery that was throwing up low voltage readings from the charging circuit!

I am in Munsan, I am teaching in Jeokseong - these are north of Seoul, near the north west border with the North. You're welcome any time! I am here until September when I'll probably - though not decided head out to the Americas. Where abouts are you? Are you teaching?

I've seen a few yammy scooters,and an R6 or two, but no YBRs (

I have a few morer things to do to the bike, but I brought the parts for these over with me! I might even get to ride it in Korea yet!

Take care!
Nick
