How do I check to see if my stator is grounded?

by Paul

I'd like to know how I check to see if my stator is grounded. Also, can I add a wire from the cylinder head to my frame? I have no lights, turn signals, anything...

for the drive belt
by: Anonymous

You have to use a impact wrench and hit it with about 130 psi and use a socket bit and wedge it on the back of the flywheel and up against the housing and be sure to do the same when tightening down.

Oh OK, Cool!

Also, where can I get a tool to take off the sproker/flywheel on my engine to make the motor stop turning over, so I can the nut off so I can put a new drive belt on?

Checking the stator
by: George

I called my mechanic and he told me the best way to check a stator is to get a OHM meter. It should read at least 4 OHMs. If not, your stator is bad.

Stator problem
by: George

I'm not to sure how to check the ground on a stator. As far as the lighting problem goes, I would check the fuse located at the battery. I had to replace mine.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
