Glad you got it figured out.

Back on the road doing 88 in no time!

Mine isn't all that bad from what I've seen. Others had the bearings seize up and all the parts fuse together, there is gearing on the rotor that doesn't come with a new one. All my stuff came out super easy thankfully. Also looks like I didn't loose too much of the magnets and plastic housing, others were covered inside the engine.


I would suggest testing the voltage on yours if it ever seems to take a tiny bit more to start. At one point I remember thinking I needed new spark plugs because it was slightly slower to turn over, may have been not having as much juice.

When it went, for me, it sounded a bit like a super charger whirring. I thought it was a new sprocket I just put in. I probably did 50 freeway miles on it. It whirred louder as it went on.
The thing I find pretty amazing is that whenever I put mine on the battery tender it always to "storage" within a few seconds. I heard Cougar's in Kamiah and it sounded pretty bad. Thankfully mine doesn't have anything going on.... yet.

A month, that's how damn long this took to get fixed.

Would have been faster if I had all the parts I needed and could work on it for several days in a row, but you know how that goes.

Anyone planning to do it get the bolts for the stator to the cover, they over tighten the crap out of them from the factory and they're not reusable because of that. Not knowing this added a week waiting for 3 bolts. Also, criss-cross pattern for the oil pan, no one seems to say that.

Here's a shop manual for the bike, came in real handy. One in print would have been worth the money but as it was this problem cost almost as much as my first bike.

Though I now have an electrical gremline, probably when I ran the new stator line or something. Rear blinkers work but don't stay on as running lights now.

Sit back, have a few drinks or go out for pizza & beer. Tomorrows another day and you'll probably get it sorted out pretty quick after a good nights sleep.

Yeah.... sorta discovered they aren't on from the factory and I had just been looking for the first time lol.

The result of all of this though is knowing I need a second bike...
