Stator Replacement

Just got the stator off the bike, and boy what a pain that was.... Getting ready to reassemble the bike soon and had a few questions regarding the moly 60. Do I pull the shaft out and lube the splines then push it back in and also lube up the part that goes into the bevel case? Does it matter how much you put on? Any other tips or tricks would help!

I take it you didn`t use TuxedoSeven`s engine case mod to avoid pulling the engine for the stator replacement.

Here is fergy`s spline lube procedure:
https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17274

It approaches the spline lube from the rear wheel not the bevel gear, but since the engine is already out, you can pull the driveshaft out of the swingarm to the front. You can clean out the coupler splines and regrease it with 17ml (about 3 tsp) of Moly60.

You will not be able to clean the pinion spline on the final drive or inspect the O-ring on it with this procedure. Make sure you get the coil spring back inside the coupler before pushing it back through the swingarm to engage the final drive.

If the coupler splines are dry, worn or you see any rusty dust in there, I suggest you pull the rear wheel asap and inspect the splines on the final drive too.

Lube the u-joint and bevel gear/driveshaft connection with moly60 or some spray lube. The bevel gear/driveshaft connection is not subject to the same sliding movement that the rear splines are, so requires just a thin coating of lube.

There are instructions in the Clymer manual. Probably in the Online Kaw manuals at TOC or Kanuck69`s new manual thread too.

I think I found the spring everyone talks about under the bike, don't remember seeing it when I took the bevel case off. Where does that go?

Take a look at fergy's spline lube procedure listed in Ol Hoss post above. There are ample pictures there and I believe I took a picture of the final drive spline with the spring still on it. Check page 3 I think. It fits inside the coupler on the end of the driveshaft and over the end of the splines on the final drive

Stator is currently in good hands with Tim, should have it back next week. Then its time for the rebuild.

Here is the picture of the spring I was talking about. It doesn't look like the one on the thrid page of the Spline lube thread.

No, it doesn`t look like the spring from the spline coupler.
I don`t recognize it.
There is a smaller cam follower spring on the front bevel gear assembly, but it doesn`t look like the one you show.

Can you post the spring diameter and length measurements?
Did you pull the driveshaft out of the swingarm to do a rear spline lube?
Did you find a spring inside the coupler?

I can post the size tomorrow. I have no idea where it came from, I found it under the bike, after I pulled the side cover and I was cleaning up. I did pull shaft out of the swing arm but I didn't see any spring on the other end.

Did you Drain your oil? It almost looks like the spring that holds pressure on the oil screen. you would have the oil screen, washer, spring, and the oil drain plug.
