So I posted quite some threads concerning my vn750 89 after I removed the engine and replaced my stator. After that I had some trouble connecting the carburator and vacuum hoses. The problems seem to keep popping up as I go along repairing my bike. I gues maintanance was long overdue since the last owner didnt use it anymore before selling it to me becouse he bought a vn1500. I have no idea howlong it was sitting. I bought it at 17.000 miles and its now at 26.000.
Because I made a few threads that got really confusing I will continue to update this First post as of the progress im making.
The problems im currently having are:
1. The right side of the exhaust is not getting hot when starting the bike and letting it run for a bit. Its cold to the touch. I'm guessing its running on 1 cylinder now. As I rode it a bit and it felt like I had half the power. This problem began before I removed the engine for the stator replacement.
2. There is a leak of coolent fluid coming from somewhere at the front of the bike. It may be that I didnt connect the hoses tight enough, or forgot a hose tightner. I'll be checking those shortly. I've looked at other threads suggesting this can come from the cover thats inside the front cylinder? Im unsure though since I havnt removed that part of the bike. But it looks like its comming from there or something higher up the engine block.
Does anyone have any idea what I need to look at to fix the problems that i've written above?
Things I've done so far:
1. Removed the engine block and replaced the stator + reconecting the tubes and electrical wires that were removed doing so. (as best as I could)
2. Replaced the cover of the stator casing.
3. Refilled the oil and coolent.
4. replaced the spark plugs. (edit)
Replacing the spark plugs seem to have solved the problem so far. Right exhaust is working again. Funny. They were the 29 year old stock spark plugs!
Only the leaks remain comming from the connection ports that connect to both cylinders. probably bad rings.
