Need one pickup coil for my 2002 vn750. Just need the pickup coil , the piece that attaches to the inner stator cover with two (2) Phillips bolts. Only need a short lead out of the pu coil as I will splice it into the existing wires.
Thanks

Thanks,T. Enjoyed our visit. Still considering ur PU coils. Had a setback. Got my motor back in and all buttoned up...put in a qt of oil and noticed an oil drip from the head of the bottom most bolt of the inner cover. The cover itself is not leaking but the oil is dripping right at the head of the bolt between the bolt head and the cover. I have drained the oil, cleaned with degreaser, then carb cleaner then lacquer thinner. Left my droplight on near the culprit bolt for 3 hours til it hot to the touch. It appears clean and dry. (I was able to get an 8 mm spanner on the bolt and loosen it til I have about 5/16 in thread showing.)

I am now trying to decide what thread sealant to use. I have an old tube of Permatex form a gasket, fast drying, hard setting (part 1A). Do. U have recommendation
Thanks, Wayne wicker , San Antonio

I've done what your proposing to do. Worked great.
Be sure to use some shrink wrap to cover your connections.
K, got my stator inner cover installed and motor back in and all buttoned up. Put in qt of oil and discovered oil drip from the bottom most bolt head. The cover is not leaking. I was able to get a small spanner on the bolt and now have about 5/16" thread showing. Cleaned the threads with spray on degreaser, then carb clnr and then lacquer thinner. Left drop light on the area 3 hrs til good and dry. Appears good and clean and dry.
Now my question : what type thread sealant would u use? I have an old tube of Permatex form a gasket, fast drying , hard setting, Part no 1A . I am betting there is something just for this application.
Loctite thread sealant PSt 592 and permatex thread sealant 56521 info seems good possibilities.

Appreciate your thoughts.

So, yer sayin the bolt aint goin all the way in ?...if so, thread a nut onto it, then grind off a 1/8" to 1/4" from the end, remove nut to clean the threads....OR....just get a rubber O ring that fits snug over the bolt itself...about $0.15 at the hardware store..these aint the "right" way to do it...likely something is stuck in the female end....try poking in there with a piece of baling wire to loosen, then blow out with compressed air...also, the cover itself could be warped....if so, loosen the top ones slightly, snug the bottom a lil more, then slightly retighten the tops.

No, the bolt goes all the way in. I was careful to identify which bolts went where on disassembly.

Pretty sure the cover is not warped. There is no leakage between cover and the engine. The drip clearly forms where the bolt head contacts the cover, so the oil,is traveling down the bolt hole to the head.
The bolt cannot be removed without moving the engine again......
