Getting ready to order parts for stator job...

As posted earlier this month, my stator is shot. While pulling the engine, I'll replace the balancer dampers as well.

Best price I could find on a ricks stator is from bike bandit at 126.85 plus 7.95 shipping.
EDIT - 132.99 from DennisKirk.com with free shipping

Other parts appear to be best ordered from Ron Ayers (free shipping). I'll order on tuesday after checking all prices with local dealers.

proposed parts list follows - please lemme know if I've missed something.

Part # Name Qty Each Extended
92075-1748 DAMPER 2 $7.11 $14.22
11060-1089 GASKET GENERATOR COVE 1 $12.37 $12.37
21066-1101 REGULATOR-VOLTAGE 1 $99.25 $99.25
92055-1319 RING-O 1 $8.48 $8.48
11060-1086 GASKET GEAR CASE 1 $8.28 $8.28
92075-1747 DAMPER 4 $5.94 $23.76
92055-109 "O" RING DYNAMO COVER 3 $1.57 $4.71



Grand total - 304.06, shipped

I'm not sure on the dampers which I need (or if I need all 6?) and not positive I have all the O-rings, etc. Any leads on better prices on anything (after shipping) would be appreciated... Also don't remember if anything has been said about ricks regulator/rectifiers v.s. the OEM one...

Thanks!

I would say replace all 6 of the dampers, it is a small price to pay. Even if some of them look OK when you put it back together do you want to find little pieces of rubber in the oil and have to go back in and replace the ones that looked OK?
Prices look good to me.

I don't know what your plan of attack is or anything like that, so for whatever this is worth, the stuff from D. Kirk you'll have in 2 or 3 days, and the stuff from R. Ayers will be 10 to 14 days.

Also, most of the opinions/experiences I've read around here regarding the stator is that the Ricks part is better than the OEM in terms of everything including output.

I'd go with Bullwinkle too; replace them all and reduce the chance of needing to get in there again. If you don't, the ones left over will likely fail soon after. You know, Murphy's Law and all that ****.

Good Luck.

I won't have time for a couple weeks anyways (next week is dead week, then it's finals week...) and I'll have to wait for a stall in my dads garage along with him having time to help (I tend to forget how to put things with a zillion pieces back together....)

Definitely getting a ricks stator... just wondering if there's a comparison by someone who's had both in their hands between the ricks regulator and the kawasaki regulator (I have no idea if the current one is bad... just figure I'll replace it regardless....)

The Electrosport is the "company formerly known as Electrex" and they had some quality and fitment issues with their VN750 stators. They tend to glop them up with that blue epoxy which isn't always a complete coverage and also results in some of the wiring getting rubbed.
As far as other parts..
The three bolts holding the round outer cover tend to be tough getting out so I ordered three new bolts just in case any of the old ones had the heads stripped

and..
since you have the cover off, replace the oil seal on the shifter shaft

You don't usually need to order the circlip, just have to put it back in place or make sure it is place. However if it did dis-locate a "healthier" one might stay in place.

IMHO most problems with Phillips screw heads are caused by cheap screwdrivers with too soft tips that are deformed and blunt. Get a good one with a hardened tip, and make sure all dirt and crud is cleaned out of screw head with a pointy tool like an awl or dental pick, before trying to remove a stuborn screw. Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck with the repairs.
