:) Glad everything worked out for you . Who did you order your parts from ? :) WOW 14.2 on the dash and 14.6 at the battery that's the same thing I came up with after I put two stators in :lol: I'd say it is normal for now , good job :o

That's great. Stator on my trike seems to have been replaced by PO. Wiring and connectors were shot though. getting it back today. Hope it runs better. Need a good carb clean too, however I can't afford it at this time. Soon to be winter here in northern Illinois so ...only a few more riding days then winter storage. BOOOOOO!!!

Hey man, you gotta trike why would you not want to ride that sucker in the winter, I lived in the Chicagoland area for 5 years in Rolling Meadows and the winters aren't that bad up there once you get thru the first six inches of snow :D
