please oh please don't be the stator
Last Thursday I go to take my NC motorcycle driver's license endorsement test... Also went ahead and took the regular license test (I had not studied for it but thought what the heck). Failed the MC test by one question and passed the regular written test... I haven't failed a test since high school... Was pissed to say the least. On the way back to work I'm at a red light when suddenly my bike shuts off... Went to crank it and it turned over for about 1/8 of a second then the starter solenoid started clicking... Tried jumping it off but nothing. Finally had a few friends meet me and help me haul it back to the house... Pick from the VN750 Yahoo group suggested I put her on the tender and wait till she was fully charged, then crank her up and see if the headlights brighten then dim when I rev her up. Last night I got around to that (have had bronchitis and an upper respiratory infection the past few days) and the headlight didn't brighten at all... Any other checks I can make to count out the stator? I don't think I'm nearly mechanically familiar with the bike to attempt to replace the stator, and have not heard good things about the local Kawasaki repair shop...
All help would be appreciated...
