Trying to fit my 3 wires of a new 3 phase stator I bought for my bitsa I realized it does not fit original studs - stator holes for them are simply too small. Not a lot, but I would have to use force to install it. Did anybody had this problem? I wonder if its possible to drill these holes at all? Or perhaps somebody has an idea ho. w to enlarge them without drilling? Honing them with a hone used for valve guides?

Another problem is my very nice unmolested clutch basket. Very many of it's teeth lost their tops, it looks like somebody used it without a shim under engine sprocket and outer row of teeth shows it. However what caused many teeth to loose their tops I have no idea. Is it safe to use such a basket, what do you think?

Hi Adam, I recall my new stator being PFT to go over the studs, a quick waz with a split dowel and 100 grit paper in a pistol drill should help clean up the holes, it is meant to be tight, it definitely shouldnt be loose, there are EMFs acting on it.. I wouldnt use the clutch basket in the pics, maybe if it was one or two damaged teeth, i count at least 30 in the pic. it looks like it ate something that disagreed with it.

Tops of the teeth ripped off is likely from running a loose stretched chain.

One time when I opened up my primary chaincase, I found this:

These were the tips from every tooth on my chainwheel. The cause? My primary chain was so stretched, and the adjuster set so high, that the chain no longer meshed with the teeth on the chainwheel, and so proceeded to shear the tips off the teeth.
