Does anyone have both? If so, is Crymer (sp?) any more helpful for diagnosing stator and reg/rec problems and stator replacement procedures? I have the Kawasaki manual but to me, it falls short. Looking for opinions before buying the Crymer.
What problem in particular are you trying to fix?
I only have the CLYMER MANUAL, so cannot give a fair comparison with the Kawi one. Some of the Clymer pictures are very good and clear, while others are overexposed and dark and very hard to make out. I finally downloaded the 2200 page Kawi manual off the TOC manufacturing site (I think it is in the verses, or you may find links to it reading the threads in the tech forums)last night. It is much more detailed, and the line drawings are very clear. The photos however leave a lot to be desired. They are quite faint and hard to see IMO.
Before buying another manual, go to the Vulcan Verses and read everything there you can find about the stator, r/r, and electric charging system in general. One problem there though, is that most of the links to pics or other threads do not work anymore. Do the same with the Electrical Tech forum, look back through more than just the first page, skimming for titles relating to the charging system, testing, etc. These are more recent posts, and most of the links do work.One exception being links to ebay auctions that have expired.
We do have a few professional mechanics who frequent these forums. Also a lot of experienced owner/riders who have also learned a lot about testing and wrenching on this sometimes frustrating mechanical marvel we call the Vn750. If you still have questions, someone is bound to be able to help. Good luck.
