    you put the bike on the centerstand, or lean it against a wall. No need to drain the oil. Unplug the wire, undo the side cover screws and pull the cover straight off. It will resist a bit because of the strong magnet. Then remove the 3 bolts holding on the old stator. If the gasket is paper, it might have to be replaced, if its metal, most likely, it can be reused. Reverse the order to reinstall, using locktite on the stator bolts, silicon where the wires come out of the case cover and di electric grease on the plug. That's it.

    I replaced the stator twice on a Sprint ST 1050

    That’s what my stator looked like too when it failed.   Pretty clear there’s an issue if one set of coils is blackened.

    I read somewhere it's the result of a poor oil feed causing the top coils to overheat on earlier 1050 models. Sounds about right.

    Correct, the last batch of 1050 engines produced for the Speed3 and my 2020 Tiger Sport have an extra oil gallery for cooling the stator.

    OK everyone, with all of your encouragement I prepared myself to do this job myself.

    Today was my first opportunity to get my hands on on the bike but after employing my new multimeter I am a bit flummoxed.

    Battery charged, removed from battery tender yesterday is still at 12.8 v today with key off.
    Battery with key on but not running is still over 11 v
    Battery with bike running is 14 v

    Rectifier regulator checks out as good

    Stator checks out ~ 0.5 between each contact and OL from each contact to ground
    Between each contact ~ 22 V at idle and ~ 70 v  at 4-5000 rpm

    To visualize the stator I'll need to remove the fuel tank as the wire seems to route up towrd the front of the bike before coming back down to connect to the r/r.  I'll also need to remove an engine guard on that side of the bike.  I am hesitatnt to do that if unnecessary.

    It there another common place to look for a power drain?  I have experienced a failure to start just twice since I have had the bike.  The first occured about 4-weeks after I purchased the bike; the second about 4 weeks after recharging battery and assuming we'd left something turned on. 

    I only turn the key to off.  I don't use the "Lock" possition.

    Thanks for any tips.

    The battery is a Duracell Platinum AGM sport battery.  The previous owner replaced it within the past year.

    The bike gets ridden nearly every day.  It has failed to start only twice since I got it.  Both times, about 4 weeks apart, charging the battery with the battery tender resolved the issue.  I just assummed it was a charging system issue.  It does not routinely get put on the battery tender; only as a rescue from these episodes. 


    Because the charging system appears to be functioning properly and the battery is new, I suspect there is something that only occasionally draws down the battery overnight.   I am only using the bike locally for now so, I keep a watchful eye on the battery charge.  If I get an itch to take a cross country tour however, this bike might not be the one I'd trust for that trip.

    Thanks again everyone.  While I don't know the orgin of my issue I do feel a bit better prepared to handle it once the origin is revealed.

    Do you have a tom-tom docking station fitted & wired to battery? I found that ran mine down without tom-tom fitted. On switched live now.

    Just checked my battery for comparison, battery is oem so 8.25 years old, not been charged since 30th June, last run 5 days ago. MM on battery shows 12.83v, ignition on shows 12.00v, running shows 14.1v.

    The battery you have is only 180cca, most owners with your model have upgraded to a YTZ14S which is 230cca.

    exactly.....might also have been a dirty spot on the clutch safety switch...spray some cleaner on that and get a yuasa or motocross ytz14s
