new rider 9984 if you are using new oem gaskets you dont have to use any goo but it wouldnt hurt anything if you used a thin layer of the goo on the mating surfaces of the gaskets just as added protection from leaks

gasket question

Hi, again, before I assemble the parts back to the engine, bevel gear and stator part, do you recommended pasting the joints with permatex hi-temp stuff along with stock gaskets.

VN 1985 stator burned

Hi, just an update on my summer riding season that was going so well and then my battery started acting up. Thanks to the forum, I checked my stator wires output and got less than 10V charge. Well I did remove the engine enough to get access to the stator I found the thing severely damaged, blackened sections from shorting out I guess. I have a spare one and will put it back together when I receive my new gasket.
Fortunately, considering the age of the bike, I did not break or stripped any existing bolts, including muffler-manifold studs.
I do not foresee major issues putting it back together.

Funny, I was reading about unfortunate stator stories and I did not have a clue this would happen to me. Well I guess we all get there at some point.

thank you forum for the info.
