K6/K7 GSXR 750 replacement stator and/or R/R

  1. Hi NR,
    As soon as weather is permitting I will be attempting to diagnose a dodgy stator and/or regulator/rectifier and was after first-hand recommendations on new replacements of these items?
    I can see lots of choices out there but would like to hear from anyone who has put new ones of these in and where you bought them - tried and tested in a way.

  2. No stators but I have replaced Reg/Recs from http://www.regulatorrectifier.com on my and a few mates bikes and never had an issue.

    Stators you can get rewound if you can be without the bike for a while at Small Coil Rewinds in Geelong. A couple of the guys here have done that.

  3. +1 for http://www.regulatorrectifier.com

    Replaced the faulty stator on the 10 ( just outside the recall years, so missed out on the warranty replacement ) with one from these guys..no problems since.

  4. Beautiful thanks guys, exactly what I'm after (tried and tested)...good to know their stator/RRs are still working sometime later!
    Too bad the USD->AUD is so abysmal at the moment :S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S
  5. Given the model I would put my money on the R/R unless its got big Ks on it.
    Get the kit with the mosfet R/R and the relocation bracket. The stock spot will keep frying them!
    They were relocated on the K8 model for this reason

  6. Cheers fennel, and yeah I'll definitely be relocating it like everyone else has as it is a silly spot!
  7. Ok well as a sort-of follow-on from GSXR-750 K7 - small oil leak from stator grommet | Netrider - Australia's Best Motorcycle Community , in relation to the stator bolts, I did not apply any threadlock/loctite to the bolts because the Suzuki service manual doesn't say to.

    However I'm wondering if I should have?

    And if I'm going to be playing around and pulling the fairing off to seal the grommet, should I go ahead pull off the casing and threadlock/loctite the stator bolts to be sure? (I don't have a torque wrench, so the bolts were done up approximately to the force required to undo them initially)...
  8. With any rubber grommet that sticks out of a case you should put some sealant on it.

    You won't need any loctite on the bolts for the stator .
  9. Sweet thanks Nick!
    I did put some Permatex gasket stuff on the grommet when I put it all back together, but I'm guessing a combination of the stuff being opened and old, oil breaking it down, heat, it eventually failed.
    Will be buying some proper RTV high-temp oil resistant stuff today and seal the exposed part of the grommet on the top of the casing...hope it works!
