I've managed to source some magnets as well. What do I use to stick the magnets on before putting JB weld between them?
Also, anyone have any issues with blocking the holes up between the magnets?

I know which parts I need, but was sent this one. I need to know if anyone recognises what it is off. Getting a lot of different info on what does and does not work on a SV K3. The numbers, according to a dealer, don't refer to part numbers. Just hoping someone recognises it, and can confirm what bike/model it is off and if it has been used on a SV K3 etc.

Send it back, give them the part number and tell them to send you the right one.
I've had my SV from the day dot and been on several forums the whole time, I have never heard of anyone finding an alternative for the genuine one.

Well after a lot of grief I have finally fixed my bike.
I bought the other rotor (the smaller one in the previous post) from a breakers and it looked like it had not been touched. After a lot of asking, someone in the SV Facebook group confirmed it was off a later SV, and even though the outer diameter is 10mm smaller, it will work in my K3. So I thought if that is the case, then when my magnets smashed up they must have damaged the stator, even though the bike was running fine before I removed the cover.
So speaking to a company that rewinds stators, she had just been talking with someone else with the same issue on a SV1000. The stator and reg/rec passes all of the resistance tests, but the stator is only outputting 9v AC at tick-over and 24v AC at >5k rpm and therefore not charging the battery. They fixed it because they found one of their magnets in reverse to the others. So I decided to check mine, and sure enough found 2 magnets opposite to the other 4. Looking at them you could not tell they had been re-glued back on.
So after getting some spare magnets for my original rotor, I have glued them on (using Loctite 638) and then Epoxy Metal Weld between the magnets. Even though speaking to an Auto-Electrician and someone else who rewinds the stators, the holes in the rotor being blocked is irrelevant as the stator is designed to run in oil, I created some oil paths and holes to help drain some of the oil when the bike is off.
And all is now working as it should!

Magnets spun so all touching and one large gap.
Fried Stator where gap was.
Left me dead on a road trip
Synthetic Oil
Various motorcyle specific oils
Bugger.....its a DL, but i suppose its the same set-up as our SV's......mine looked the same on opening her up....
My guess is that one is still sitting in place and the others are loose....if so, dont break it free, its your starting point
As long as they aren'r broken, you have a good rebuild point ....
Scuff and wash the rotor surface clean and the backs of the magnets.. A fine even smear of JB Weld on the magnets, and clamp them all in making sure the gaps
are exact all round....i used 6mm pine rod to space them. OH, and make sure of the north/south orientation of the magnets.....
Once they have been clamped for at the least 6 hours, preferably overnight, then 1/3rd fill the gaps with JB.....file / grind them all
after 24-36 hours so they are exactly the same... (balance is inportant).....then, bolt her back in......

(if you don't have enough clamps, just make sure they are spaced properly, and glue /clamp one or two at a time until you are done.....just takes longer....)

Just repair, dont dispair....... (...bad i know...)

Please post ONLY the information requested. There are a ton of threads talking about this topic, let's keep this nice and clean and down to the facts only.

Randy Singer has been generous enough to offer his services of representing us and bringing our case to Suzuki. All we have to do is get our act together and get the information in one place in an organised fashion.

Please post in the following format:

This is only an example ;

Year of Motorcycle : 2003

Mileage before magnet failure : 10,372 Miles (or Kilometers if that is appropriate)

Was Synthetic , Semi-Synthetic or Conventional oil used ? : Conventional

What brand of oil was used ? : Barnaby's Classic 10W-40

Did the magnet failure cause any injury or further mechanical damage to you or others, or property ? : Ruined stator.

Post pictures if you have any.

Please refrain from any other information unless you think it is an important fact that lead to the failure.

I've contacted the admins over at SV Rider and Stromtroopers ( a DL forum) , and made posts over there describing what we're trying to do and linking to this thread. Also asked them to let me know of other SV or DL forums or to contact the other forums admins about this. Hopefully we can all get together and make something happen ! Cross your fingers guys/gals ! ! !

Thanks......................Blake
YOM. 2003
KMs. 30,000 plus
Oil type. Unknown.
Need to replace three magnets if any available please

I replied to you on the other thread......
i will repeat...ha ha

If you need to be back on the road quick, buy a new rotor and JB Weld it .....and sell your remaing magnets individually to make some coin back....

Single magnets are like Unicorn horns.......and people do pay good money to get them.....

I'm planning to check my magnets soon and was wondering if anyone knew the gator cover torque settings?

Many thanks,

You mean the rotor cover ? Or the rotor bolt ?

The cover bolts are just good and firm.....and you can clean the gasket as long as you are careful removing it and coat it in gasket cement (non hardening)
I have used the same gasket 4 times now that way....
