Wink Stator pull - progress report

SO I'm slowly yanking bits off the bike getting ready for the big push this weekend. Here are some shots of what the bike looks like now:









I've got the bevel gear off, all of the hardware on the left side off, radiator/fan off, almost all of the gear from the right side off. Pretty much all that's left os to pull the motor mounts and the cross bar from the front (and the break-away frame on the right side) and rotate away. Of course, this is assuming that mam Kawi gets me the gaskets and o rings I need today . At the very least, we'll get the old stator out and the new one bolted in place if not on the engine itself. I'd be **extremely** happy to have her back together and fired up before the day is out. Cheap little gaskets and o rings holding up progress.....

Lookin Good so far!! Did you fuse the stator before it went out or just did it?? If you did before then do you know what caused it to go out?

Most, if not all times, the insulation on the magnet wire the stator is wound with shorts to either other windings, or the core (ground).

I believe that the old R/R took a dump. After we broke down last weekend, I convinced my bud to see how hot it was. It was stone cold, relatively speaking. That means either the RR was fried and not working, or the stator is fried and not working. Either way the battery ended up totally flat and the charger at home returned a fault code that it was essentially fried as well. So to cover all the bases, I'm replacing all the parts involved.

OK, so today I swung by the dealer and all my gaskets were in except the one for the bevel gear. THEN, when I got home, the new RR was waiting in the mail, along with my new Kuryakyan Voltmeter for my V-Star and a set of Iridium plugs. AND THEN... I ordered my new Air/Hydraulic MC lift. It's not **exactly** the one I was planning on getting (no rear drop out plate for pulling the rear tire) but it'll more than suffice for any of my bikes, and those of my friends.

Hey AJCruzin, just wanted to say thanks again. The bike ran better than ever before. Curzin up the 14 at 80, hit the throttle & somehow slid me back on the saddle as started flying by traffic. The volt meter stayed above 12 the whole time. Got to say you are the Vulcan Master.

Definitely could not have done it without the folks here on the board. You know what they say, smart people learn from their own mistakes. Really wise people learn form the mistakes of others.
