Had to replace my stator on my 03 with around 23k on it.
Me and my boss pulled the motor out and replaced the stator as it was not charging. He was a mechanic for 10~15 years. I'm not a mechanic by any means. I do have some understanding of how things work. After replacing the stator and getting it all back together the bike dont act right.
I wouldnt start while I was at his house. We ran the battery dead and called it a day.
He got it started, but said it had some clanking like it was off time. It had done some clanking as it was trying to turn over when I was trying to start it. It would run at full throttle, but wont idle. Choking it floods the engine. Any idea's what we may have done incorrectly?
All of the hoses and wiring seemed to be correct. The are old and as I say had a memory (bent and curved) as they just fell into place where they should go. We didnt get into anything other than taking the side cover off and replacing the stator. We didnt touch the timing chains.
