    stator wire gromet

    hi guys, so here's the deal i put a new stator in and one, i forgot to put in a grommet where the wires come out of the housing. so ill have to make a new one since the old one was trashed. can i just use a bunch of silicone sealant. i feel like that's a bad idea. now on to my real question. after my test drive i noticed that there was coolant leaking on to the exhaust. i didnt have alot of time to investigate and its too late to have be working on the bike. i swear though that the coolant was coming out where the grommet should have been. ill have to check tomorrow, but there isnt supposed to be any coolant in there right. i checked the oil. looks good. no milk shake in there. i didnt see it coming out of the weeping hole either. any thoughts. im hoping its just a small leak in the overflow line or something.

    Most of the time those grommets are pretty used up. They are hard to find OEM if I recall. I do seem to remember someone on here who made up a replacement, but I can't remember who or when that was.
    I've seen a fair number of folks on here use an RTV sealant for the grommet space with no ill effects. Needs to be oil and petroleum resistant, and applied carefully so as not to goop into the stator area. Sure, looks blah, but it will suffice.

    did you replace the mechanical seal as well? It is probably leaking out the weep hole on the bottom side of the impeller.

    i tracked down the Chinese manufacturer of these a few years ago

    and they would only sell me 1200 dollars worth

    so i did not do it
    GET AN OIL FILTER ADAPTER

    Order The Quick Build Exhaust Pipes


    GET A QUICKSET VALVE TOOL

    doesnt look like its leaking from the mechanical seal, that was actually just replaced a few months ago.

    It's a bit more complex than just a simple grommet.

    Murray's correct, fogelsville Joe molded some of them very nicely, but I might have got his last one. I whittled one out of a big rubber stopper from the hardware store, and it works but is not as elegant as Joe's, so it's lying on my workbench. You can have it if you want it, I've got Joe's in my bike.

    Regarding your coolant leak, you might check the rubber bypass hose that comes down from the thermostat to the spigot just ahead of where your grommet would be. That hose can get cracked with age and leak around where it's clamped to the spigot. It happened to me.
