good write up... hopefully this makes this a lot easier for those not electrically inclined to understand a little better.

thanks and here is a thread to walk them through the stator replacement...

Get your stator rewound for about 66 plus shipping this came recommended by Vulcan guru Lance... Tim Parrott Enterprises


Personal note .... i personally believe its better to spend the extra 15min and drop the motor completely out of the way would involve a few more steps... This is what i followed for my first sator replacement!

Also recommend a service manual (Clymers or kawasaki's )... Heres one Service Manual (large file may take a min to download)

replacing a STATOR

Just wanted to add where you failed to include:::

That stator has been to hell and came back and went to hell, AGAIN!!!!

Didn't read the whole thing just saw how burnt the stator was. Have spent the last several hours polishing Vulcan89's frikin valve covers getting ready to install the motor. FINALLY!!!

Great job, DUDE!!

Results between stator legs can be around 1.5 ohms but not to exceede 2.0 ohms, as long as they are the same and no leg is shorted to ground.

This is a great write up, and easy to understand. Not to knock you in any way, but:

Where you wrote "If there is resistense the stator is bad", actually we need infinite resistense between the stator and the ground. Meaning a lot of resistense between the ground and the windings. If there is continuity there is a problem.

Now if I am wrong I am willing to look it over.
