Definitely replace the dampers in the balancer, and you'll need a tool to remove the stator from the shaft. Recent post here by niterider gives dimensions - hard to find, although a few of us have them on hand and are willing to send them around.

Blue locktite for...? The blue I use is permanent - can't think of anything on the bike where you'd want to use that.

Bolt on stator is reverse threaded (righty loosey); use a penny to keep the gears from turning (copper doesn't do damage to the teeth).

I like to use a little gasket sealant just to be on the safe side.

Present readings between alt bullets w/engine on @3k rpms (measuring Vac)

AB=51. AC=50 BC=37
@3K those voltages don't seem alarmingly low to me. I'd retest again @4 to 4.5K RPM . 40 to 70 VAC in this RPM range is acceptable.I would suspect a faulty regulator or a bad connection on the r/r connections,before pulling the stator.I had the same symptoms and it turned out to be a corroded connector on the r/r,if it is in the stock location it is highly susceptible to corrosion underneath the battery.Something else needing checked before tearing it down,JMO

Hi

The stator dosen't bolt on (unless you mean to the side case), that's the rotor. And the rotor bolt is (righty tighty). The righty loosey bolt is in the balance shaft, it holds on the damper gear.

Sorry, I was tihnking of the rotor, you're right. And although the tool extracts the rotor, there is a bolt over the rotor that's reverse threaded.

I agree with denny, those AC voltages don`t seem that low. Retest at higher rpm before tearing down the engine.

IF you do dismantle the engine, definately replace the balancer dampers.

Left side balancer is held on with a left hand thread as mentioned by others. (Righty loosey)

Rotor pulling bolt is M18 X 1.5 by 50 or 60 mm long. Somebody here recently mentioned finding a bolt with those dimensions in a bolt supply store for ~$3-4.

Case International farm dealerships keep them in stock too, if you are near one.

Cindy don`t like to contradict you, but I think your *rememberer* is on the fritz . (apply more caffeine )
My Blue Locktite is medium strength, removable with hand tools.
And my Red Loctite is High strength permanent. Requires heat to remove.

Ooh I knew what you were thinking. But then, I'm smarted than the average bear. I just got done tearing a vn750 apart. I only found one righty loosey bolt in the whole cycle and it was in the left end of the counter balance shaft.

That had to be the dumbest idea ever. Even Dodge gave up on that idea when they quit putting left hand thread wheel studs on their cars and that was long before the vn750.

Medium is Red, Premanent is Blue, Beef steak when I'm hungry and Whisky when I'm dry.
