Chris, I’ve got a stator here but it’s off a carb’d rubbermounts, 22amp. You’re running the f.i. Stator, 30 or 32 amp?

Did you check output off the connector? Was the issue just the break in the harness?

When she fires up and you head down the road, it is sure to bring a smile to your face!

Good thoughts.

Chris. It's not winter yet. There will still be some dry crisp days which can be so great to ride especially up in Yorkshire.

Depression is the worst thief of all, robbing us of even the smallest of pleasures. Hope you can find some of yours back soon.

Cleaned her up and then it rained so I went for a trip down memory lane reading back over her old build threads...

Added air shocks from an Ultra Classic , which raised the rear height 2", and more with air in them. I like it. I need to address the forks with longer spacers and fresh fluid. I also finished the fab on the Vetter mount, and started install on the pannier mounts. Though they say the fit is perfect, they failed to mention I would lose the rear pegs, so some fab needed to retain them. The racks also came with bolts too short, so I need to go get replacements.
