    2003 Triumph Speed Triple Stator T1300502 Is OEM worth it?

    I have a 2003 Triumph Speed Triple which I've owned for about a year. Lately I've noticed that when riding and coming to a stop/idle the big would stall. The only way this wouldn't happen is if I revved the throttle. Well, I took it to the Triumph dealer and they told me that I needed a new stator. This is what I had actually diagnosed on my own. However, here is my dilemma. The OEM part T1300502 costs about $500. This seems really high and I don't know if I want to spend that on a 2003 bike. I looked online and aftermarket stators are less than $200. Is it worth it to spend the extra coin and get the OEM part? I've heard horror stories about the aftermarket stators and fitment issues. Thanks in advance.

    Did you measure the voltage across the battery terminals at idle and when revs are increased? If so, what were the voltage readings?

    The symptom you're describing does not sound like a failed stator. Unless there's more details/symptoms you've not stated.

    I only say this as I'm currently on my 5th stator...
    And failed stators are not that common with your model.

    If you remove the stator cover it'll reveal some cooked windings if the stator is indeed f#%ked.

    OEM replacement stator is ridiculous expensive. The aftermarket units are made in china and have been used with mixed success. The middle ground in terms of price, and usually best value for money, is to have your OEM stator rewound. Usually at a auto-electrical places that specialise in rewinding electric motors and alternators. The Rewind item is often better quality than the OEM unit, for about half the price or a little more.

    Thank you for the reply. They measured the voltage and it’s low. Before taking it to the dealer a few people told me it might be the stator. I’m thinking about going with an aftermarket unit as $500 just for the OEM part is ridiculous. I’d love to hear from any 2003 S3 owners who have experienced this issue. This is my first time owning a Triumph why is the OEM part twice the price.

    I agree with Santa. In the 02-04 model, stator failure is very rare. R/R failure is much more common. If inspection reveals that the stator has indeed failed, I also agree that rewinding by a specialist is the way to go.

    When I did my first and only stator (06 model) I had it rewound by a specialist in m/cycle rewinds and he explained what he had done to make his rewind better than the original, and that they refused to rewind the cheap aftermarket stators because they were basically crap.
