Kawasaki Vulcan VN750 stator replacement without removing the engine
Update: 4-25-2017 The stator I put in for this video lasted for fewer than 3,000 miles before it grounded out. I replaced it again from the same supplier but this time I replaced the regulator with a new oem part and remounted it out in the air near the rear tire. That stator failed today, after 3,020 miles. I suppose I’m going to have to pay 0 for an oem stator, the original lasted 22,400 miles. My previous 1999 VN 750 had it’s first (oem) stator failure at 28,500 miles. The replacement for that (not oem) lasted 12,000 miles.

Replacing the stator (which failed at 20,400 miles) in my 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan VN750 motorcycle, without removing the engine from the frame.
Previous to this bike, I owned a 1999 VN750 and the oem stator failed after 28,500 miles. I replaced it by pulling the engine from the frame and used an new aftermarket stator. That stator failed after only another 12,000 miles. I don’t remember from whom I bought that stator. I replaced that one by pulling the engine also.
