About a week ago I bought a 2006 Dyna Wide Glide with 7700 miles. When I went to check it out, it was really dirty. The owner was honest and said it would not hold a charge. He said he put a new regulator on but that did not fix the problem. While there looking at the bike, I pulled up hdtalking on my phone. After 20 minutes of reading it seemed like the 2006 Dyna stator and rotor were common problems. I went down to the auto parts store and bought a new battery. Threw it in and she fired right up. Check engine light was on. I rode it about 2 miles down the street and turned around. The battery light came on when i pulled back into the driveway. The bike ran well. I went through all six gears and got it up to about 70 mph. A buddy told me to let the bike run with the headlight on and rev up the motor and see if the light got brighter with higher rpm's. The light stayed the same no matter what rpmthe motor was at. The seller was asking $7500 for the bike. When I say it was dirty I mean filthy. He lived very close to the beach, and there was some corrosion starting to show in several places. No rust except for some rust specks on the top of the rear fender. Front tire will need to be replaced in about 500 miles. The bike has screamin eagle slip ons and lo-jack. Besides that all stock. I offered him $5000 for the bike, thinking he would counter. But he excepted. This immediately made me really cautious about buying the bike. But I could not resist and decided to take my chances. When I got home I ordered the 2006 dyna service manual and the replacement / updated rotor and stator kit along with primary and derby gaskets. I have preformed maintenance on cars before, things like oil changes, alternators, starters headlights and other small jobs. I have rebuilt carbs on my old dirt bikes and atv's. I have read every post on hdtalking related to dyna rotors and stators. I really want to tackle this project by myself without dealer involvement. Getting a neglected bike and fixing her up and making her shine, is something I am really excited about doing. Does all of this seem like a doable project? Or should I just get rid of the bike and look for another? Sorry for the lengthy post. Any suggestions or advice is appreciated. David PS: The attached pic is after hours of cleaning.
