Stator install on GL1200
I purchased the Randakk's replacement stator. I'm seeking advice from anybody that has done this install themselves...
I've watched Steve's video on this and he makes it looks so easy. The sealing plug doesn't want to fit in fully, easy enough to fit the "circlip." I'm thinking of using some sort of clamp to assist. Ideas?
Also the stator itself does not just slide onto its hub (as shown in video). It is quite a tight fit. I checked the original one too and it's the same. It came off easy enough but would need some encouragement to go back on. I can get it started on the hub lip, just barely with a little grease. I can use slightly longer bolts than the original screws to pull it into place. Is this standard?
Again, any ideas and helpful suggestions are appreciated!
