I just picked up a 86 A, and spent the day doing a few things. The stator is working just fine, but I found the connector to be very badly burned, so I directly connected and soldered the "Yellow" wires. Next, Iadded a neg and pos (fused) wire directly from the regulator output, to the battery. I took off the fake tank, wind screen and a few more items to give me access, and thencleaned and greased (dielectric) every connecting plug that I could find. The scoot has 59K on it, and seems to run fine. I do NOT have any history on it, so simply don't know what has or has not been done. I've ordered a couple of timing belts..... just because.I sure ain't no expert, butI havebeen amotorcycle rookie for over 40 yrs. Always looking for good advice.

Anyone have any suggestions as to other mods or areas that I ought to look at?

You've already hit some of the most common ones mentioned here, namely the timing belts and the alternator wires.

Beyond that, the drive shaft splines should be serviced if you don't know the bike's history. Be sure to use a 60% or better moly paste on the splines!

I'm sure others will be along soon with more.
