had to happen eventually
Well it finally happened. After 170,000 miles on 2 Vulcan 750s (92,000 on my current one) the stator finally failed. I am not going to replace it due to the high mileage, and I have been hearing what sounds like cam chain noise for the past few thousand miles. The TOC adjusters don't stop it. It would be just my luck to replace the stator and then have a cam chain break. I put it in the shed out back with a cover on it, until I decide what to do. Probably Craigslist.
Fortunately not very long before this happened, I had just bought a brand new 2013 Royal Enfield. It came with EFI. I am saving up for a carb conversion kit which costs almost $600. But it comes with a genuine Amal concentric MK1 carb.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
