New guy here from NJ

Hey all! Just recently picked up an 86 VN750 with 5100 miles on it. All original, and purchased it from the original owner. Ran great for 200 miles, but broke. One reason why I am here now. Looking for someone by the name of Rags. I found the name via a website. I was told he makes Stator covers that you use when doing a Tuxedo7 mod. Mine just went out on Friday.

Welcome to the machine! Looks good for '86.

I think Rags is long gone from the forum. You can try to find gcxtreme, maybe he's still selling the tux plate, but he hasn't posted here in a long time. If not, the TOC plate is about 6 times higher in price. Before I paid that, I'd pull or tilt the engine.

Always a chance you might find a used tux plate on ebay.

Found GC on ebay. Price is a bit higher, but far below TOC.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-Vu...oAAOSwvgdW6eUb

Looks like this is where he's selling them now, shows more than 10 available, 53 sold.

Thanks and much appreciated. The site I found mentioning Rags was from years ago. After searching I did reach out to gcxtreme via PM. He hasnt made a post since 2016. Kinda Stuck right now. That TOC plate is ridiculously expensive!

Thx again for your help Spockster. I am going to test the Stator and Rectifier tonight and see what I come up with.
