Easily done for you Jason (well, after STUFF calms down). A no doubter
Hans, your accomplishment is nothing short of amazing!Last few years were low mileage, I was about to give up.
Iron Butt people are after the miles.
For me the ride is like a drug, and I feel best when I get to ride most every day. Racking up the miles is one of the costs of getting my daily high... lol Two years ago I bought a Shadow Aero as a second bike because my VTX was getting too many miles on it. In the past two years I still put about 20K on the VTX, along with 35K on the Shadow!
Not bad for that many miles!Stator and Rectifier/Regulator
OEM died at 104k miles. Shunting aka shorting R/R shorts the stator to control DC voltage.
So I purchased an aftermarket stator and a MOSFET R/R which I thought was non shorting.
It turned out to do a better job of "shorting" the stator so the end came in 190.7k miles
190,763 miles; 5/20/2019 completed install of new Rick's stator and new Shindengen SH775AA R/R
A series R/R that reduces current from the stator if less voltage needed.
Stator is unloaded, lot less heat.
Carb slide valve diaphragms died right at 93k miles and at 186k.
I went with a JBM Industries diaphragm at 186k.
The diaphragm is cheap, its the Honda Moly coated slide valve that is expensive.
I wore out a rear brake disk, I blame it on the boots!
Seems to have more heat from friction than the front. I know pipes are nearby.
I replaced drive flange bearings at 189k miles. One very notchy, the other not bad.
All Balls installed..
Wheel bearings are original.
