This was a GL1200 Standard, I removed the engine and replaced the stator.

When I get back from holidays and have more time, I will upload the how-to article with photos. I will also have a separate video clip of the stator being replaced then, the one in the post above just covers engine removal.It is about 17 minutes long and Imade it as high quality as possible for Youtube uploading and itseemsgood enough for full screen viewing.

There are some shaky parts, due to the fact that I had the camcorder in one hand and tools in the other.

Excellent video and excellent camera work. Never thought to wear rubber gloves when tackling a greasy job like this. I have a whole box of them in the garage and could have used them on numerous occasions if it had occurred to me, duh.


Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

I guess the rubber gloves are for keeping the camera clean.

The video is really good and easy to follow. It makes the job look easy.

Very concise and to the point. Can you demo this on my old goldwing? it needs another transplant..

I love to see more things like this get posted. Never knw when we will actually need the info and photo's and video's ourselves but it is great to know they are here when needed.

Now if anyone would like to make a video for a 1500 I would be happy to let you remove/install my engine for a video.
Guess if it's out anyway I could go ahead and put in the starter gear then LOL
