Re: Raptor Stator Problems
Certainly sounds like you were hit with a different stator assembly related issue. The 'unplug the rec/reg and it works' one, as you know, is related to a short between the charging and the HV windings. Yours was obviously something else, and your theory about the pickup coil certainly holds water. Sorta wish they hadn't combined the pickup as part of the stator... sure makes replacing a simple component much more costly.
