So finally got back to working on the bike, ordered my parts and got them in, changed regulator -- went smoothly. Now fun part, stator. I went to remove the cover and as expected another problem, my socket is too big for the one last bolt :crap: after putting this aside out of frustration having to buy a whole other set for that one little bolt when the rest came off fine... I came back from Florida, nice and relaxed bought the new smaller socket set and back at it I go, I took out the old one, rebolted and installed the new one.. Bike won't start. Noticed this new tube/pin on the floor and realize. I didn't have that on the floor before :nono: now I take off the cover, put it in but when I put in the pin and try to match it up with the whole it goes it the stator goes in but gets stuck because it's not on correctly. The pin lines up but everything else doesn't, the bolts to the cover don't match where they're supposed to be and I looked closer and it doesn't seem to look flush. The little gear with the hole for the pin looks off and looks like the pin should be going deeper but it isn't and that's causing The miss match, I feel if the gear was moved accordingly to follow the hole behind it, I would have the pin in and the stator cover back on fine. I'll attach a photo, please help me, first bike I'm actually working on so I never looked at the inside of a stator cover..
