My XT225 has been down since March with a failed ignition charge coil on the stator. I have had three bad replacement parts from Yamaha! The wire to the ignition charge coil which is supposed to have only 20-30 Ohms of resistance to ground has a dead open - on all three!
Has anybody else seen this problem lately, or am I the only one that's needed this part in this time frame? The tech that looked at the last one felt that the stator assembly was "not up to Yamaha's usual standards". We're assuming they went to a different supplier & got a whole batch of duds. Now the stator is unable to even be ordered from Yamaha in their computers, we can only assume that Yamaha is now aware of the problem and has pulled all the parts from the shelf. I talked to the parts guy again yesterday & he said he's in touch with their Yamaha rep but hasn't gotten any firm answers yet.
An attempt to have the original rewound has resulted in finding out that the wire in the ignition charge coil is ultra fine with several thousand windings. The guy who can do it would have to charge as much as the new part would cost. Seems a little steep....
I don't know what I'm really looking for with this post. A little commiseration maybe? A good part for my bike popping up out of the blue would be nice - but a little unexpected
