I bought my '02FLHRSEI in 2002, it was manufactured with a 45 amp charging system. It has 62K. After being stranded from a dead battery I discovered quickly no charge in my system. I found continuity across the stator leads at once and opened the primary and got that smell, so I knew the stator was baked. With some luck and history with big twins, I caught this failure very quickly. My AGM battery fully recharged and with the use of some very expensive snap-on testing equipment it test with 100% of it's life and all of it's original CCA. I have only added a rear fender tip light and an air horn to the bike and this CVO bike was not supplied with passing lamps, so it would have the least draw of all the EFI touring models. I did research and with the help of the history on this fine forum it became evident that the '02 &'03 stators were not as reliable as later models. I decided to replace the stator and rectifier/regulator (although it passed all tests) with Cycle Electric goods. I ordered the parts and then the puller from Jim's. I did a bit of further research on the 3 phase gear offered by CE as I waited for the puller to arrive. I do not have any current plans to add any draw to the electrical system, maybe a trailer some day but that should be only 5-8 amps of draw while on the brake. I feel it will still be charging at idle. So the question is this; Will I really gain much to convert now to the 50 amp 3 phase goods from CE? As compared to my current 45 Amp system with the new CE stator and rectifier/regulator (both are NIB and have not been installed). My OEM rotor is perfect, with no runout, concentricity, roundness or physical issues. I get that the upgrade includes a upgrade in compensator. But, I do not thrash my 107TQ/101HP sleeper around and never hammer it from the line. I have already spent the money for the stator and regulator and it appears to be shy of $200 to get the 3 phase upgrade from CE, with the return these parts.
