seriously i don't know
reason i'm asking is causse i think it has something to do with generating power for the electrics on a bike and since i wanna race bike i want to shave weight....so its either the battery or the stator?
so yea...which one? and what does a stator do? thanks
i want something good to die for...........to make it beautiful to live

not a fuel injected bike..something has to power the fuel pump, computer, injectors and a whole bunch of other crap while the flywheel is capable of producing power (with a magneto of course..) i don't think it would put out enough voltage to run these neccassary components..
To be honest this is the dumpest question to savign weight. That reminds of me of a guy i met once.. He was bragin how he took out the sound deadner, spare tire, and a bunch of other stuff out of his car. The was saying that he saved so much weight.. I was like that cool, but DAM dude you weight 260lbs, you lose some weight. I'm not saying anyone is fat, shit i'm kinda fat too. But come on, savig the 5lb off not having the batter?? or startor??? what is that going to give you .00002342 faster ET?
Once the bike is started, the battery acts as a capacitor. Whether or not it would run without the battery, I don't know (chances are that it will but possibly not as smoothly). Give it a try and tell us how it goes. Just make sure you keep the terminals insulated. You should also do a dyno before and after just to make sure you're not loosing.
By the way, the stator is the stationary magnetic field in a generator.
