That's probably optimistic and assumes the mechanic has experience doing this job on other GL1200's. It also doesn't allow for problems like exhaust header studs snapping (very likely), cleaning off old gaskets from the back engine covers, seized bolts etc.$100.00 per hr, 3 hrs out 3 hrs in, 15 min to replace stator.....
I've had my GL1100 engine out twice (stator bolt came out and ruined the rear cover one time, starter motor chain broke another time) and I consider myself familiar with the job. I have a bike table and I'm a big lad and fit. All that considered, I would be lucky to get the whole job done in 8-10 hours, and I always have a helper for the final engine lift out and initial refit in the frame. I usually split it over a weekend, engine out and parts fitted on Saturday,
engine back in and job finished Sunday.
