And another thing I've done is work on the back shocks. The right side had blown out and was bleeding on the floor. I happened to have an extra pair of shocks and went ahead and tore both down and put new oil seals in them and new ATF. first time for me on that little procedure. Pretty easy actually. That is unless you want to change the springs, which I did not.

That is for the next guy. And there will be a next guy. Soon.

Sure a long way around to changing the stator, hope the new starter is the end of the 'go round' :BigGrin:

On it goes. The starter I ordered doesn't fit. You can see in the picture below that the battery post is in the wrong place and it interferes with the exhaust pipes when I try to install it. Oh well. Trying to get a replacement from the seller. The picture I saw matched my starter, maybe the one they shipped me was from a 1000 or 1200. Don't know, but this is all getting ridiculous.

The picture is a bit misleading, the lengths are about the same.

Just a suggestion here. Try your old one just straight powered from jumper cables. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be an intermittent starter solenoid.

My update includes more waiting. I ordered a starter from a place called Rareelectrical on eBay. When I tried to install it I noticed that the diameter of the crank end seemed to be too large. And the starter interfered with the exhaust downpipes. Turns out that the starter they sent me was wrong. Even the battery posts were in a different place.

I tried to call them and it took them six days to get back with me. I had already sent the starter back and was really wanting them to just give me the right part. The customer service guy told me that he would check the package I sent them the next day. This was last Friday. Well, he didn't do that. I just asked for a refund.

I ordered a new one from Green's Motorcycle Salvage in Kentucky. Hopefully I'll get it today and the bike will start. We'll see. I don't have 100% confidence as I already have a lost riding season. Going up for sale when it does.
