    Good god! That poor thing was never ridden!!! If anything, it is giving you low voltage as a response to a lack of love... I am of the opinion, after I have thought about it most if the day, that completing The Drill would give you a more comprehensive view of the entire charging system. Since you owe other VFRs, you must be familiar with The Drill... Btw, i do like your stable. All theee bike that we see (and I suspect the ones we don’t...) are groovy...

    Congratulations on the purchase!! Those are great bikes!! I have a 2003 with almost exactly the same set up. What is the mileage of yours? I would replace the stator and R/R if I were you right off the bat. Maybe inspect the old one and keep as spares for emergencies only and only short term if they are still looking and test ok. Charging is an issue on those. While at it, maybe inspect all grounds, fuses and connectors. Some tend to melt... Good luck and keep us informed of what you find. C Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6th Gen Refresh

    Looks great! And this thread is quite interesting. Keep at it, this is very instructive for mechanical idiots like me. BTW, given that VFRs are somewhat ... electrically challenged, do you intend on soldering any of those wirings instead os using those plugs which sometimes create heat and eventually melt? I know yours is a better 6th gen than my '03, but I'm just saying... Best of luck! C
  12. Dutchy, When you drain the tank, instead of a suck, how about getting some paper towels? I have never had to taste gas, but when it gets low, I put on gloves and grab a few paper towels to soak in the rest of it. The last thing I wanna do is put gas fumes in my lungs, or gas in my mouth. That being said, it looks like you are doing a great job at making that old girl a new (virgin) again! Will be a great bike to ride I'm sure!! And a looker too!! Well done!!! C
  13. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!! Nothing tha force and ignorance can't fix!!!! Get a bigger hammer. And hold my beer... But I see you succeeded using your head! And a dremmel. Congrats.
