Am doing the stator change in my 1200 On the front of the engine is the wires from the pulse gen and coming up off the bottom of the engine is another set (I believe that set is the shift sensor, not sure tho) These sets go way up under the dash and I cannot find a connector in them. Would it be advisable to cut them then re solder them when I do reinstall
or is there something that I am missing? Also my Clymer book says to remove timing belts and gears. Is it necessary or can I leave them on till it is out? Am worried about it getting out of time when we pull the motor out of the bike. I have new belts to go on her.
Thank you in advance for your help

The engine will come out easier with the belt covers removed and even easier with the right side cam pulley off.

The Pulse Generators definetley have a plug. Look for it at the spark unit.

Leave the engine in the bike & install the "poor boy" kit! Better power, easier repairing in the future!

If ya cant fix it with a hammer, it's prolly lectrical

Never had any luck with connectors close. Removed the pulse gen's The other set of wires have to be the gear indicator. Traced it up to the plug by the left pocket. Wound up snipping it. Couldn't get it fed back out since it was under an Air or brake line She is on the rebuild now. If this stator gives out on me I will DEFINITELY be doing a poor boy repair like Hatchetman suggested
Thank you all for your help

She is all back together again. Too late when I finished tonight so will be going out for a test ride tomorrow Looks like the new stator starts charging at about 800-900 RPM Wont tackle that project again. If she goes out again it will be a poorboy fix.
