big Service 1125CR, and looks the stator has beenreplaced before, as the wires are put back with a short cut ,running up next to the cylinder outside.


big Service 1125CR , tried to measure the stator, but can't measure anything, battery flat, and you can only really tell the stator is bad by measuring AC voltage while running.


big Service 1125CR , so starting striping the rest for the big service, end cap exhaust is loose, willput a new screw in


big Service 1125CR, axles can be tight, using a breaker bar often.


big Service 1125CR,rear wheel bearings feel a little gritty i willchange these, they will not hold untill the next service.

big Service 1125CR , rotor off , and a look on the oil channel in the crank we are going to use for the oil jet, makes you wonder why they did not do this out off the factory ?


big Service 1125CR , the starter clutch is usualy sticking on the rotor, with 2 bolts in the other way around, you can tap the starter clutch off with a drift.

big Service 1125CR ,and off course clean the bolts , run a little thread chaser over theme.


big Service 1125CR, for mounting it is way more easier to first put the gear and starter clutch back on, a little starter lube will prevent it from running dry.


big Service 1125CR, and the starter clutch on ,also lube it soit will not run dry.


big Service 1125CR,clean also the back side off the rotor from loctite residue.


big Service 1125CR ,as the old rotor was in good shape , we have some ready to go replacements usualy in stock ,al ready with oiljet , line uo the starter clutch holes and slide the rotor on.

big Service 1125CR , free the horn wires and in this case pull the rear O2 sensor wire gently so it has more slack.


big Service 1125CR , engine down.. fron plug out, looks good.


big Service 1125CR , front valve cover removed...i see something ugly, the tight cam lobe is loosing its hardness , as a piece has already came out.. will dicuss this with the customer.. first check the rest off the cams.


big Service 1125CR , measured valve play ,to tight.


big Service 1125CR , front cover back on to protect from dirt, remove the rear cover...loosening the left fuse box and the start solinoid,will give the cable harness more slack to remove the rear valve cover.


big Service 1125CR , rear valve play needed adjustment, ,check adjust and check again.


big Service 1125CR rear cover, as putting the cover back on is a little bit off a pain.. i glue the gasket on the cover with a little silicone, it is to easy to misplace this gasket while, wresteling the rear cover back on, and very hard to see if the gasket isin place.. to much work todo it again when the gasket is leaking oil.
