Yamaha snowmobile stator common failures
Yamaha Bravo 250 snowmobile stator failure
The popular Yamaha Bravo 250 series has had a long life from 1995 to 2011. Most of these Yamaha snowmobiles are abused beyond belief and still run day in day out. They have a weakness though! Their stators are prone to failure from neglect. Most of these snowmobiles end up stored in a shed or barn most of the year. Humidity is the enemy here, causing corrosion and increased resistance in the connectors and wiring harness, resulting in stator failures from an overworked charging system.
Yamaha 500 cc snowmobile stator failure
Another Yamaha snowmobile that has a tendency to burn up stators is the Yamaha Vector, Venture, RS Rage and Nytro 1000 from 2005 – 2007.
In the 500cc range from 2005 – 2015 Phazer 500 and Venture Lite 500cc are prime candidates for stator failure.
