Hello all, I'm looking for recommendations for replacement a stator, and clutch plates for my 1986 1200 interstate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try to find someone who will rebuild your stator. The aftermarket stuff doesn't seem to last very long. And use OEM parts wherever possible.

Why are you replacing the clutch? Or the stator for that matter?

I have a Honda shop manual already. The engine is out of the bike and before I put it back together I want to change out what I can so I don't have to pull out back out later. The bike was sitting for quite a while, at least 5 years, before I got it so I'm going through everything I can. Cleaning and replacing hoses, miscellaneous rubber bits and such. I've rebuilt the carbs, and the forks and brakes are on my to do list as well. I am looking for suggestions for the best replacement parts for the clutch and stator, and what to stay away from

If the stator tests good, it is good and replacing it may increase the probability of failure if you mess with it. Clutch plates last hundreds of thousands of miles normally, but with the long sit it might be good to replace the fibers...And check the damper.

I you are an electrician by chance or have a buddy that is using a megger to test the stator would be best. If you take the rear cover off you could take it to a electric motor shop for testing.

Shorted winding or open winding is about all you'll find wrong with a stator, it's pretty simple. The magnet is the permanent magnets encased in the rotor.
