This is a new bike to me, bought a couple of months ago out of storage. Low mileage, about 8K now and runs like a Harley should. Not a scratch or ding, new fluids went in as well as a general going over and bolt tightening, etc. The bad news! I've put about 12 hundred miles on, including the Dragon which is in my back yard. I got stranded in the Ocoee River Gorge today (with my chic) with a dead battery and no luck with multiple roll-off attempts. My suspicions of a bad stator were confirmed after testing per Clymer and the excellent Self Help on the forum, which was actually simpler than some of the procedures in Clymer...with the same result. Stator ohms out fine, but output is low. And only 12 volts from the VR at the battery with the engine running, once I got it home and battery recharged. So I'm looking at pulling the primary cover, rotor and stator :newsmile08:. The primary cover bolts have some very cool covers, that appear to be chrome-plated plastic. How are these removed...and are they reusable???
