    Well folks, after 4000km, my Skyteam decided to give me his first grin. The two bolts that hold the stator coils assembly got loose and the coils started rubbing against the flywheel:





    I neglected the rattling from the left side of the engine and today it stopped...

    I think it's a "standard" OHC Honda clone engine (has 166FMM code on it):



    Any suggestions where I can get new assembly from, as I can't find anything suitable in ebay (or google in general)?

    I think this is the correct stator for me:
    http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=20657952333

    But its price seems suspiciously low compared to the hundreds of stator coils assemblies I've seen on taobao. Anyone speaking Chinese, can you, please, take a look if there is a catch, as Google translate is not helping much.

    Well, I have to say that I'm more than pleasantly surprised by Skyteam factory customer support. Since there in no distributor in Bulgaria, they are willing to sell me the stator assembly (1 pcs!) and ship it. Now, we're working on getting suitable shipping option (read "cheap option") and I'll most probably rely on one of the taobao agents to handle the transport for me.

    I also asked the UK dealer, but their price is way too high for me - GBP67.45, plus shipping. Still waiting for an answer from one of the German dealers...

    In the meantime, I continue with the (sort of) "reverse engineering" and noticed a logo on the inside of the stator cover:
    Attachment 11292

    Any idea who's that? Google image search can't match it with anything.

    The taobao agent has received the stator from the factory and is now shipping it to me. So, I'm waiting...

    Total cost - USD47.00

    I'm totally amazed by the customer service of Skyteam! I never expected them to go through so much effort about one spare part for a customer from the other side of the world. And since credit must be given where is due,

    Skyteam factory support is top quality! I'm 110% satisfied and highly recommend them.

    Well, one month to the day after the bike stopped running, yesterday the stator arrived in my mail box. Installed it and the bike runs like a charm! Yupee!

    The path about getting parts from the factory using an agent has been made, so next time I need something I think it'll be much faster.

    Did you change leaky oil seal?

    Say, you didn't ask for Skyteam's price list?

    What leaky seal? No leakages on my watch!

    And, no, I didn't ask for a price list. I hope I won't be needing anything special for a long time

    Look at the bottom of the photo, inside magneto. What is that black fluidish stuff?

    Perfectly normal to see a little oil in there.
