Re: Charging nightmare?

Well I removed the main items such as: tank, seat, top engine covers, side engine covers, radiator, shifter, brake pedal,and left side frame, removed the gear box . Dropped the exhaust all in one piece and left on the carbs and throttle cables, left on the engine ground. remove the motor mounts as described in the service manual. using a floor jack move the engine down and out to the right side of the bike once it is out of the bottom engine mounts you can pull the top of the motor towards the left side of the bike while pushing the jack from the left side of the bike to the right. Make sure you do not let the shift spindle hit the frame. Tilt the engine at a 30* angle, an easy shot to the stator. when complete just pull the jack back to the left side of the bike while slowly jacking up the engine so you do not hit the shift spindle. once you get the motor mounts in you are set just install the rest of the main items and you are done. totall time was 5 hours pretty easy to do not hard at all. I have pics of step by step for my records. I then replaced the rectifier and battery. To anyone trying to do this it is very easy no worries. Again thanks to Sgt. Mike for is recomindation of where to find a stator no problems arrived as promised and hassle free. Thanks to everyone for their replyes. Ride on.........

Again thanks for the info Sgt.

Better warranty also. The dealers does not have a warranty once an electrical part is installed. Electrosport has 12 months.
