remove the shift lever

and take out the clutch mechanism

loosen the chain tensioner

stil draining.. move to the right side , cut the cables free

you need the big flat one ( first model plug ) and the big 4 pin , with only 3 pins in it

the 4 pin with 3 wires is the stator plug

disconnect and pull out the lock wedge out the connector

with a little pick push the locks a little out and pull the wires

and 2000 rpm check.. nice

now to change the much faulty no.77 plug ( the big flat one ) these burn out regulary , marking the red , feed to battery .. as all wires behind the connector are black

it was leaking about.. customer cleaned already some

simple things first. wet shock ! douse the dampening still works.. common for these to spill there oil .after a long time not riding

pully cover of

little wet behind

but mostly to the front under the camcover

lets remove the canister and see

wet here to.. i suspect engine cases gasket ?

at front also wet

first clean
