very nice 1125Cr in for basic checks.. rotor oil jet upgrade 

and make the trottle lighter... quick throttle was mounted.. and cables broke ( and very heavy pull )

stator to regulator wires are crimped to getter , no connector ( stator was burned and replaced ) 

the HD wire harnes fix.. will take it out right away so the bike will charge below 5000 rpm —

stock filter.. meehh will replace for K&N also more fun intake noise 

remove the idle air control cables 

unscrew the cable from the sollinoid 

lock the 2 throttle cams to getter , so they can not longer move indipendent —

the quick trottle cables are nicked already 

and the barrel was pulled of the cable end ( so much force needed ) 

xb was not running good.. stutters accelation 

intake stack was not mounted good , so sucked vacuum to the top off the airbox 

on with the 1125.. ignition cover needs to come of , so oil line loose —

pick up sensor out 

and cover screws out 

new and shiny stator
