    Rode into town Monday morning, every thing fine, got my business done and got back on the bike and hit the starter button and oh oh, dead battery. I get some dude to give me a push and she starts but the voltmeter shows no charge, so I say a prayer and make it back the 28 miles to the RV park in Salt Springs. When I get back the volt meter is down as far as it will show and the engine is starting to sputter. It looks like I will be changing the stator and rotor and regulator in a few days. Anybody able to recommend a good supplier.

    Ken the closest local supplier would be Ocala Harley. Gainesville Harley isn't much further. I don't know about Ocala but Gainesville is closed on Monday. There is a shop across the street from Cheyenne Saloon in Palatka but I don't remember the name or if they would have the parts you need.

    I ordered aftermarket parts from an indy shop down the road from Ocala HD. Parts cost $400. for a new stator, new rotor and a new regulator and primary gasket and a bottle of oil for the primary. Hope the parts get here before Fri. J&P was going to be almost a week for shipping and HD was 4 - 5 days. The stator was burnt where theleads are soldered into a stator coil.
