Caltric ST139 Stator for CX500/GL500/CX650/GL650 review


If you're looking for a cheap G8 charging-only stator for your Honda CX500/GL500/CX650/GL650 you will likely come across a generic Caltric stator.

This is a charging-only stator, as said above - so if you have a CDI CX500 that is running the stock CDI box this won't run your bike. If you have a CDI bike and run an Ignitech module, this stator will work. The CDI stators are often called G47, and the TI charging-only stators are often called G8. All eighteen windings on the G8 stators like this Caltric are for charging.

This Caltric stator is quite cheap - under $90AUD delivered, not on sale - so it's quite appealing to those who are trying to save a few bucks on their triple or quadruple bypass.
