WHile wrenching on 7shortmags 2010 outlander 800 XTP today, I found this plug. It is for the stator wiring. The stator side of this plug has already been replaced due to the plug melting. Now, the chassis side of the plug has melted...including all of the wire covering. The wires are extremely brittle...who knows if it could catch fire. I haven't started the machine since I noticed this, I think I'll wait for the owner to come pick it up before I do. He is contacting his dealer to see what they want to do. Here' some pics...This plug is directly under the heat shield under the seat, you can see the fuel pump in the lower section of the first picture. Please check this, as it seems it is a problem...maybe they need to do a recall on this issue. This is the second time the wiring for the stator has gotten hot on this machine.

Thanks for the heads-up, I will be checking mine. How many miles/hours on that machine?

Mine looks OK @ 67 hours.

The mileage is off due to the speedo assembly being replaced. The hours are around 398 or so. I don't think he uses the winch that much...but I'm sure it has been used.

Do you think it was because of winching and or long winching or some thing else?
Isn't it ironic? The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.

No I don't think it has anything to do with the winch. I think 1 of 2 things is wrong. 1. The wire is too small a guage to handle the extra watts from the stator. 2. There is an issue with the stator/regulator that need to be addressed.

where do you check to see the date ???
when riding a renegade, you never look at other brands and wish you had it, when riding something else, you look at a renegade and WISH you had one

oh wow, this is not a "small" issue. it could lead to serious problems, including burning the bike to the ground. the fuel vent line is the one to worry about, since gas in gaseous form is far more combustible than liquid form. not to mention it could short out, fry the magneto, the VR, other electronics, or even the ECU.
do not send me PM's on clutching stockish bikes. there are a TON of threads and information on the forums regarding the basic clutch kits and mildly modified bikes. if you don't find what you are looking for, post a thread in the open forum, as there are others on here who know what they are doing and also know what works for stockish bikes.

What does the other side of the plug look like. The other side is where shortmag noticed it first, the dealer replaced the wiring to the stator, along with the stator under warranty. Now, the other side of the plug is jacked up.

Okay...so....If anyone has read my post....is this what they were talking about when they said there was a problem with the "connectors"? And she said they would replace the entire "harness"? Sorry...this mechanical stuff is all Greek to me! And the BRP rep was just as lost as I was...she knew nothing about mechanical stuff, either.

I certainly consider the above as "part of the harness".

seems to be in good shape...going to keep a real close eye on it though.
scary thing is..they stuffed the tank vent line underneath that plug.
