It's angle iron. The thickness was correct. What you use is on you. The frame is chromoly so pick a steel you have access to and go for it.

I would never do that because I'm no welder! For me every time is like the first time. I probably only do 2 or 3 welds a year at most, so I'm very inconsistent. I need a neighbor with your skills.

Caltric sells a stator by itself for $30 and a stator and RR together for $55ish. Don't use the connectors they come with. Too cheap to handle the amperage. Direct solder all wires. Replace at least the brake light with led and if possible the headlight and it should give no issues. The brake light causes brown outs at low rpm sitting at lights. The caltric stator doesn't put out under 1100 rpm

The Rick's puts out 14.8v at 1100 rpm, 14.1 at 950 rpm. It's oem quality IMO and I'm very happy with it.

The box the stator comes in just barely fits around it. No room inside for anything. If you permatex the gasket, no need to buy one.

Don't usually get a gasket with them.

I traced the last one I bought, put it on card paper in case I need to make one. They're about $10 on ebay.

There's one on there for $5.50, looks like the right one: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...t=6000&_sop=15

There is also a Caltric with a gasket on that list... $61

Look into the electrical mods to help your stator last longer.

Wow you cut all the way back to that rear mount....no way to cut a smidgen IN FRONT of the kickstand??I would really think those welds gotta be Superman strong cause the way you cut that frame the kickstand HAS to hold the weight of the bike,know what I mean? Also I am really confused...asked on this forum if I do the "frame cut" method and pull off that larger cover,was told NO NEED to take the smaller three screw cover off.But I see in pic yours is off(??)
