Exactly what I was thinking...I have been using HippoHands for several years and they really help, combine with heated gloves and my hands stay very warm

Gee. I never saw that coming. Shady babies that thing.

How in the hell did ALL the bolts back out of your stator? And where are the rest of the windings? Have you been doing drunken trail maintenance again?

Obviously a defective part. Warranty.

Going to need a good lawyer to argue that one, it's only out of warranty by about 7 years, know any?

142 bucks for a new stator, 6 bucks for some new bolts, 40 bucks for a new tool to get it out...Apparently it is a known issue on these bikes. The bolts back out a bit and then shear off destroying the stator. Good news is that the fly wheel is usually fine as long as I'm not to drunk when I drill/take out the remaining part of the bolt.

WOW ! ! ! What year is your bike ? It doesn't look like the bolts are broken too deep, should be able to remove them. Just make sure you drill the pilot hole centered. Take your time.

New toy! Just got this in the mail.

I was riding with Ed on RTB III when he had a flat (two, actually). He had an awesome little jack that held up the bike while he did the tube changes. I looked around a bunch and found out that it was most likely a MotionPro Quick Jack, but they don't make them anymore. A lot of people have made their own with pieces of crutches etc, but I preferred to just buy something.

Turns out, Eagle Mike makes a perfect little jack and it's only $30 shipped. It's got holes drilled all along it so you can make it whatever height you need using the cotter pin. It also comes with a couple pieces of velcro that you can use to wrap around the brake lever for the wheel that's not being changed to help keep the bike still.



Oh, HERE is a link

Hey. Ms. FancyTool. Not that long ago we'd have paid double the price.
