Question Re: VN750 Stator Question

Hi John, and the rest -
After browsing some more, I see several posts regarding stators. Is this an issue on these bikes? How long do these typically last? I also understand that you have to remove the engine to replace it...?

Thanks
Jaime

Jaime...This is a potential problem. Don't think there are actual statistics, but from being here, VROC and on the Y! group, a fair amount of us have gone thru it.
You don't have to completely remove the engine from the frame, but disconnect a lot of stuff from it.
Go thru the Notes, and either post here or email me w/ any Qs....

Re: VN750 Stator Replacement Notes

Well thank you John - I hope I don't have to do this for a very long time as my bike is a brand new 2004 and I hope warrantly will cover it for a long time as I have an extended warranty.

By the way - I see may references to VROC - what is VROC?

Thanks - Jaime

Re: VN750 Stator Replacement Notes

VROC is a different group. Though many of us belong to it since we are Vulcan Rider and Owners. Some refer to it as the main board since we are sort of an off-spring. VN750 was formed to address the specific issues etc for our bikes. VROC is for ALL Vulcans..
It is found at http://vroc.org/dbva/index.html

Smile Re: VN750 Stator Replacement Notes

Hi Guys & Gals:
Chalk up one more stator replacement. This one in Paris, Kentucky. All the replacement notes here and on the Yahoo Group were great help. In fact I'm not sure I could have done it without you. All went quite well. I used my digital camera when I could to verify cable routing & such. I used my flat bed scanner to make gaskets for the alternator housing & bevel gear housing. She (Leapin' Lena) is full of coolant and oil awaiting the first start. Need to solder in the three 15A fuses....and she's ready to go. I'll run her on a bottle first (tank not on) to get the coolant bubbles out of the system. Some of my pictures can be seen here..... http//photos.yahoo.com/allangordon40/
Thanks a bunch,

Allan (Flash) Gordon

Since mt stator replacement the voltmeter has been reading healthy. I also replaced the inner stator cover with the one from TOC Manufacturing so when it come time to do it again.. 20,000-50,000 miles down the road hopefully. I will only have to pull the outer cover
