just saying hi

hey guys.

haven't posted in months... justice (91 vn750) has been in storage in a shed (with a fried stator, unfortunately) over the winter. plan to order a new stator in the next week or so and attempt the installation. just wanted to check in and say hi. weather was amazing in boston yesterday and i saw a bunch of riders out on the roads... really made me want to get my bike going (although i guess the weather is supposed to turn again in a few days).

hope everyone is doing well.

Stator job's what I'm finally starting myself.
But I'm taking it a step further and making a left side removable frame section, like the right side is.

There was a guy at the Y! site that did this, and managed to do it without having to pull the motor!
That's what I'm hoping for.
Another guy here did it too, but he's doing some other stuff to the bike also, so he pulled the motor.

Got a scrap frame from ebay, so I'll have OEM pieces from the right side section to use on the modded left side

Best of luck to ya with your stator job

Oh yeah, here in Western PA, it's gettin' a good bit colder out now. So it's on it way to ya !!

whoa! didn't know this was possible. i couldn't find that thread over there after a few searches... do you remember the thread subject? very interesting idea. i'd love to avoid the hassle of pulling/tilting the engine. as it is, i'm very seriously considering the toc engine cover.

HERE is a link to the thread.
And HERE is a link to a couple pics he put in the photo album there.

It seems like an easy enough thing to do (with the right equipment).
I don't want to recommend doing this (but it would make things easier!) cause it is quite a drastic mod, but if done properly, and with possibly adding some additional support around the bolt together sections, I think it should be just as good as stock.

Not to dump on the frame mod in any way, but the TOC mod is certainly a good quality way to go.
Welcome back GR, it's good to hear from you again. Good luck on your stator replacement and hope you're riding soon.

Fergy I agree that the TOC mod is a good one. I personally think it is too expensive, but others will not.

That's the biggest reason why I decided to go the way of the frame mod.
Now, if it came with a reliable replacement stator, I might consider spending that many $$$'s, but the money I save doing the cut & paste can get some other stuff done to the bike !

I agree about the expense of the TOC. That's a load to spend. I don't know much about the frame mod, and it's long term effects or cost, and what skill level someone would have to be at to do the frame mod.
