75 rd125 b stator question
« on: February 12, 2018, 12:16:20 PM »
Hello im new to the rd scene, im noticing a lot of resistance to engine rotation. when i removed the left cover and stator the resistance went away. Is it normal that the stator causes resistance to the engine turning over...like i feel the magnets holding the crank a lot..seems like that would make it hard to start..

Well its an inductive resistance that will be required to generate power to ruun the engine, although i'm surprised that you notice it Id be more concerned about low resistance when you are turning over without it fitted, unless you have the heads off?

Heads are off...it still feels like there is compression until i take the stator off..i think it was hitting the flywheel...or maybe the magnets are just that strong.
