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.
