I didnt have any problems with mine. If you have a line crimper crimp the clutch line though just not to tight. to save fluid from going every where. I learned some tricks from doing mine now it takes me about a full day to do one. If they havnt been done this is a great time to do timing belts!

You just take the clutch slave off the motor and hang it out of the way. No need to break the banjo.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Screw, I see you left the carbs on. The 1200 FSM says to remove them. The 1100 FSM says to leave them in place and hang them with a bungee. Did you have a problem leaving them in place? It looks like it is easy to get the out with the crashbars removed.

Dennis, the FSM says to pull the clutch lever in once and tie it to the handlebar. This will prevent the piston from being pushed out.

The UPS guy left a package today. We received Rick's stator, MOSFET rectifier/ regulator, the wiring kit and the rear cover gasket. The stator is epoxy coated. This should help protect the coils. The core plates appear to be very thin. This is know to help the strength of the magnetic field. When I get the stock one out of the bike I will count the plates. The Reg-Rec has a voltage set point of 14.5 to 14.8 volts. The wiring kit is the eight wire male connector for the reg-rec plug. It included replacement wire for the yellow wires to the stator, the two ground and +12v wires. The supplied wires are 16GA. I have some quality 14GA, I will use this atleast on the yellow wires.

I replace the 3 Philips screws with 10mm head bolts, a better way to go.



Here's a great deal on a "lifetime honda stator" for the ltd/se-i and 87 which is denoted by the white tape near the plug.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/STATOR-COIL...53.m1438.l2649


On my 84 red standard after the head gaskets blew, I removed the header pipe nuts with the 2 muffler bracket bolts loose and the header pipes just pivoted right off the studs, something I don't recall happening on prior muffler removal ?


I ran a extra ground from the reg bracket to the battery box upper bolt or I could use the battery terminal.

Of course, as you document this, people will be chiming in with advise that's TOO LATE to help you. So let me be the first....(rim shot). For future reference, both head pipes for the exhaust do not need to be removed. You can remove one side or the other, it doesn't matter. With one head pipe removed, you turn the entire assy 45 or so degrees and it comes out without any stress. You only have to loosen one pipe joint and replace one gasket. Not two. And installation is a little easier, since you haven't disturbed the orientation on one side. Hope this helps someone else......

SEi and ltd stators are physically larger and will not fit into the case. It is, however , possible to install an SEi stator if you you use the rear cover off an '86SEi engine. Same for the LTD, if you you use the rear cover off an '85ltd engine. Remember, all rear cases are different year to year.

I finally finished editing the video from last Sunday. There was only about half a day to work on it. My boss is a big time classic BMW guy and he let me have Friday off to go work the 1200. The bike is ready to pull the engine. Here is last Friday's video.

Nice video, one of the best investments I made was in a impact drill combo by dewalt. Perfect for working on stuff in the garage. Saves the knuckles as well.
