Stator and degoating...what to do?

degoated my bike and put on glass packs. I am not happy with the sound as I think it is now too loud. Thinking of returning to the stock muffler system but now need to decide what to do about the stator and the heat. Most folks have moved it to the outside of the bike and I can do that but it sounds like an ordeal just to get at it. Wouldn't it make sense to just disconnect the original equipment, buy a new stator, mount it outside and hook it up again?? Is that possible???

You mean the R&R not stator. No reason why you couldn't buy a new one, unplug the old one and just leave it. I saw some on e-bay for a reasonable cost if you don't mind used.

Thanks, I did mean the R/R...sorry. I think that is what i will do. I just makes no sense to remove the engine if you don't have to.

You don't have to remove the engine to remove the R&R, it's under the battery box under the seat. The procedure is really quite simple, there are threads on how to do it in the Verses.

have you thought about just putting the stock mufflers back on in place of the glass pack mufflers? i bought the crossover eliminator kit and reused my stock mufflers and it is not very loud at all,and your stock heat shields will bolt on too .Just a thought,Denny

If you look at the procedure in my sig, you'll see a pretty quick way to remove the R/R. Just drill out the nuts and let it drop loose. You're going to move it anyway, and if for some reason you decided to put it back, you can always put new nuts and bolts on it. No reason to buy one unless you just have to, but save your money!
