Hi from Southern Illinois

Hey everybody. Names Curt, CB Handle is Violator. I'm in South IL, diesel mechanic by trade but I work on a little of everything. I have my own repair business "Hall Breakdown Services" I'm a long time rider however for years I was stuck in the world of Honda.. Go team RED right?? WRONG LOL. I just bought a 96 KAW Vulcan 750 that needed a stator changed. I have already found a TON of useful info in the electrical forum section on this bike & many thanks to those whom post there! I've got the motor sitting on the floor & stator out waiting on parts to arrive! I intend to keep this bike for years to come so hopefully I can be a good contribution to this forum. Thanks again & ride safe! Whoop Whoop!!!

If the motor is in the floor, then you're 90% of the way there! Nice work.

If you have any specific questions, let us know. Lube those splines.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. With the above stated, I would advise applying the stator Mod while the engine is out. A few on this forum have wished they had...when they were where you are at now. I will be pulling my engine soon for a blown Head Gasket, thus intend to add the Stator Mod while engine is out, as well as performing a Spline Lube.
Hope this is helpful.

Got some MOLY on those splines!
I went with the Ricks Motorsports Aftermarket Stator. From the looks of things I wasn't real impressed, the 3 wires are cut beside each other instead of staggered like the OEM stator. Also instead of having a heavy duty wire keeper screwed into the side the wires are literally held on by what appears to be a glorified bread tie LOL... a little spooky right?? Most things you truly get what you pay for! $350 KAW OEM.. $115 Ricks MS.. BUT you can't judge a book by it's cover either, I've read a TON of reviews on their reman stators & havn't really found any haters.

I hope it's no omen that the thing came wrapped in a newspaper "The Brimingham Times" in the Obiturarys section!!!

$70 rewind of your old stator from TPE will outlast and outperform both of those! Rick's stators are now just Chinese junk, sadly. Many have had them bad or under-perform out of the box.

Welcome SI from NI. I have to agree with the stator assessment above. The TPE stator will be a better choice if there is still time to get one instead of the Ricks. Since it's a lot of work to pull that engine, it may be worth the added cost to get the TPE which stands for Tim Parrott Enterprises.
Anyway, the vulcans are lots of fun and the folks on the forum are usually a source of knowledge and a brotherhood.

Not quite yet.. still waiting on gaskets & O Rings to arrive ARRRGGGHHH LOL
Don't ever order from cheapcycleparts.com
I paid $35 for expedited shipping, it took them 5 business days to ship my order THEN they shipped it Fed Ex 2 Day Select instead of Overnight... Not very Expedited in my opinion! Anyway should FINALLY have the package tomorrow & get the motor back in the beast!

Most of the parts sites have to order from Kawa anyways, so there is usually a 3-5 day wait prior to shipping.

That being said, I don't like to order from them. I prefer RonAyers, but am trying PowersportsPlus this time around.
