New owner checking in....
Picked up an '02 VN750 2 days ago. It has 16,663 miles on the clock, been garaged all of it's life. Paid $800 to a co-worker for it. It needs work, but nothing I can't handle so far.
Bought a new '89 VN750 back in, well... '89 then sold it in '94 when we had our first kid. Sold it with 46,500 miles on the clock. Been chomping at the bit for another one ever since. Stator went out then, with children on the way didn't seem worth it to fix and keep. Other than that, the bike was great to ride.
The '02 I picked up 2 days ago has issues. Like the radiator fan started running all by itself last night and the bike hadn't been riden since it was dropped off here 2 days ago! And it's still pretty much winter here in VA.
After some midnight troubleshooting, I determined it's the Junction Box.
While pulling the battery, I noticed the battery tray is eaten up with battery acid. And the acid has dripped down on the R/R and connector. The connector is shot, and needs to be replaced.
Prior to the electrical malfunction with the Junction Box/Fan relay, I checked the status of the Stator. At idle it's putting out 13.5vdc, at 4000rpm it's putting out 14.5vdc.
I'm going to replace the R/R, Junction box and air filters. What is a good online site to get OEM Kawasaki parts? Also, is there a connector kit available for the R/R? Is this something I can get from a dealer? Been almost 18yrs since I've riden, so I'm out of touch to say the least.
Thanks for you help, sorry so long winded.
