My First Vulcan (2004)

New Rider/New Member here. I'm Bill Phillips from North Augusta, SC. Just bought a 2004 Vulcan with 15K miles. This has been my dream bike ever since I sat on one back in the mid 80's. Back then I rode a Kawasaki 440 LTD from 1983 till 2004. Have always loved the look & feel that both of these bikes had in common.

So I bought my Vulcan on a Friday. Rode it for about an hour on a Saturday only to discover that it was not charging and the battery died. The seller I bought it from offered me a full refund but I decided to keep it & repair it.

Thanks to this forum and quotes of around $800 to replace the stator, I decided to replace the stator myself! I found two procedures on this forum about replacing the stator which were better than the Clymer manual!

Currently, I have the motor pulled, the old stator is out and I'm awaiting my replacement stator.
