If you have the airbox bottom off check the engine breather, it just slots in about 2 inches from the rear & the little foam filter that's in the end can clog with oil & drip onto the engine. Just take the foam bit out & clean it. It's worth doing anyway even if it isn't that.
Hope you get it sorted.


Cheers for the tip. I'll take a look when I get a mo. Sidetracked looking after a mate who's ran out of road on his KTM at the moment. If anyone needs any blackberries I've got a fair few in amongst plastics and handlebars of a KTM lOl

Stator slapped backed on the bike, only 1 or 2 AC volts showing across all of the phases. Multimeter tested against another running bike stator just to rule that out as an issue. Looks as if stator is toast. My guess is that it was down to just one phase when I bought it and that's why the clock backlights flickered and now the last phase has burnt out. I've not looked at the back of my stator as I didn't pry it off the sealant holding it in the engine case. Pic attached shows it installed in case and rotor, what you reckon? It's a bit crusty in one part for sure.

My smoke issue seems to be the breather. I think that may have blown off the bottom of the air box. Certainly blows a bit.

West country rewinds have quoted me £141 for a rewind and they sell the rmstat series r/r for £126. Sounds like the way to go. WCR were very helpful btw, certainly well versed on the 1125. Is it worth doing the hildstrom rotor mod?

Is it worth doing the hildstrom mod or getting the updated oil spraying rotor while in there? Has anyone just run a new stator with series rectifier and had lasting success?

Anyone willing to rent out a locking tool or perhaps let me borrow one?

You MUST have the oil jet drilled into the rotor or the stator will fail again.

What about the Hildstrom rotor mod? Any suggestions for places where either can be done in the UK? Twin motorcycles is an expensive option. £70 just to get the locking tool here let alone reworking my existing rotor.
