Re: Ticking

I just got my bike back together and it was ticking like crazy,it was an exhaust leak,let everything cool and then tightened all the stud nuts and all is good now. :D

Re: 1200 engine removal

Hi,this is more for a person on here that had this problem,can't remember who it was but any way he was wanting to find an easier way to remove the lower engine mounting bolts,I think this will work for him and anyone else that is needing to remove the engine,what I did was use a closed ended 19 MM ...

Re: 1200 engine removal

Hi,I have a question,again!!!,I am putting the stator back in my spare engine and before I went ahead and stuck it back on I turned the case over and poured some oil inside the case then watched it for a few minutes checking for leaks and it seems to be leaking oil around the rubber that the wires g...

Was getting everything ready to go back on and noticed that the mice have invaded my shop,they had made a nest in the right side pocket of the fairing,so I cleaned it out and checked the wiring because we all know if you live out in the country they are gonna be be there,so I have set traps out,it's...

Re: 1200 engine removal

You may be right about the stator possibly not being the problem but I still wanted to change it out,next I will go through and check all the connections again,especially around the regulator,have also thought there still could be a bad ground somewhere.

Re: 1200 engine removal

Yes indeed it is,my older sister and I talk about having these moments all the time,but I would rather be sure that I did tighten those stator screws so getting a new gasket is cheaper than doing some damage to the engine. :D

Re: 1200 engine removal

Well,I finally got the back cover on but now my brain is messing with me,like the lysol ads,I'm about 99.9% sure I tightened the three bolts on the stator and used the impact driver but it's that 1% of doubt that is bugging me cause before the engine goes back in I need be to sure so I guess I will ...

Re: 1200 engine removal

Well,I have had this bike for a couple of years now and it only started doing it a few months back and I gone through all the electrical wiring and found no shorts in any of it,so even if the old stator is good I still feel better putting in a new one,it rules out that as a problem.

Re: 1200 engine removal

Went and bought a better meter and the readings are good but I checked the old stator as well and both new and old give the same readings,can the old stator still be dying even while still showing a decent read,I was changing it out because a mechanic I know said that it was beginning to go bad and ...

Re: 1200 engine removal

Thanks for that,I had noticed on the videos that I watched the reading on the ohm meters were reading something like a 0.7 to 0.8 so maybe the meters those people were using are more expensive than mine and read differently :D

Re: 1200 engine removal

Hi again,just curious about this,I wanted to check the resistance on both my old stator and the new one but am not sure if it is not reading it right because I am using one those cheap ohm meters from harbor freight,it does not show as I have seen in the videos.???

Re: 1200 engine removal

Hi again,think I have asked about this before but when you pull the stator cover if the output comes out with it can you line it back up and slip it back in with no trouble,did not here anything drop out but just want to make sure.???

Re: 1200 engine removal

Hi,quick question for CrystalPistol,when you pulled your engine did the ujoint spring forward after the output shaft came off,reason I ask is while I was watching the ujoint on my bike has spring tension on it so I am wondering if it makes the driveshaft slide forward and makes the fd seal slide out...

Ha,got a tap and die set just in case of that happening but luckily they came off with hardly any trouble at all,also have anti-seize so no problem there,but I do hate to take the rear wheel off since I just got it back on after putting new wheel bearings in but it is going to save time in the long ...

Re: 1200 engine removal

Thanks,was hoping not to have to take that all apart but it will be easier,had already thought about removing the exhaust studs cause with my luck I would break them off for sure,by the way when you took the rear wheel off did you have to support the rear end or not.???

Re: Pulling carbs but stuck

Having been through this myself,there are orings on all four tubes and you just have to use a thin flat blade screwdriver and gently pry them up,that is what I did.
