Looks like you got 'er goin in the right direction. My stator is shorted to ground so it looks like I'll have to pull mine also. How difficult is yank'n that badboy? I'm very mechanical but I've never pulled a street bike engine and this engine looks tighter than a....well, it looks tight. I just want an idea so I'll be able to plan this job a little better. I'll probably take care of some other stuff as long as it's out.

No way this could happen in the Winter when I can't ride it anyway....NooOOo!

I would like to give Big Thank You to Chiron for His Used Exhaust System.








Also one to Festus for the Left-hand threaded bolt that got my engine together
and the big box of parts thats on it's way to help finish this project.

Well I guess it won't be ending anytime soon..........I've gotten 3 Pops (Nice Blue flames through the Ears) But can't get it to start. I don't think the plugs are firing all the time.
So I have a MF battery on it's way to see if that makes a differance. I also run across another set of Coils and another R/R.

I knew it wasn't going to be as easy as just Rebuilding the Engine.
