I'm glad it's holding up for you. Kudos for a job well done (outside the reach of the common man).
I've got to change my rear tire this week, and now I'm thinking of cutting the axle and brazing it back together. Should save me some time over searching the tool chest for a 27mm socket.

|One1||Time to put it up for the year. This is over a year and a half update. Ricks stator is a beast, totally awesome. Still crankin 14v below 1k rpm. Frame cut method is still the best mod Iíve done. I still donít recommend it for anyone that doesnít weld above a shadetree level, and in such case you donít know which side of the fence youíre on...... if you have to ask how to do it, thereís your answer. definitely a viable solution for certain VN owners. I love it.|

Unseasonably warm weather in the south for the last couple of days has given me the opportunity to get the bike out wash it and ride a little bit. itís been put up since November. It is the one-year anniversary of doing this install and it has been absolutely fabulous. Iíve had no issues whatsoever and today I am pulling back some paint to check the structural integrity of the frame and there is no wear, no cracks, no issues whatsoever. Iím very happy with this mod. 10/10
Also on a sidenote this ricks stator has been absolutely flawless with over 14 V at idle and no degradation whatsoever since I installed it. Iíve put 6500 miles on it.

I've replaced my stator a few times, but used a DIY on here to do so the first time and it was very detailed. Given that you didn't know anything at all about the stator (how it's mounted, what it's mounted with, what it's mounted to.......) I'd gather you didn't read any DIY's on stator replacement. The one's on here are very handy for people working on their bikes. I put up a couple pictures of how I cut my frame, but didn't say a word about a single bolt on the bike relating to the stator because...... it's a thread on how I cut my frame. Not only is it not a DIY, it's not even a how to cut a frame. It's a pic of how I did mine. Make a thread on your project and show folks how it turns out and what you did.

|vulkan||"...is the extra time saved by not taking out your motor worth your life???" Yes,yes it is. So cut my frame today,took like a brief moment.Those (cover) screws are different lenghs,no mention of this either.Finally got that cover off there,needed a little convincing (tapping with hammer)....dropped that cover what to my surprise(!!)the Stator is attatched to the back side of the cover with some "funky" screws!!Also those suckers were tight!!Thought that the Stator would remain in that spot on the engine,had no idea it was screwed into the cover...no-one seemed to mention this here.Also there was a tiny Zip tie holding wires together in there needed cut,no-one mentions this either..|
