    Brand new Stator coil not clean

    I just bought a new stator on line from Ricks for my Intruder 1500LC . The ends of each coil winding are not shiny but many have a black film. Is this normal to prevent rust etc. ? Should they be clean and shine before installation? The old one coming off of course was . Help !

    I would shoot an email to Ricks to be on the safe side but would think the coating is to stop any arcing between the coils. The copper wire will not rust. Also a pic might help.

    good luck

    I don't understand.
    How does the stator connect ?
    I thought that most come with some kind of connector already attached to the winding wires.

    Anyhow, asking the supplier would be best.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
