Follow directions in manual for your model.

Remove the wires from the Harley-Davidson starter. Remove the retaining bolts. The starter will come off. Reverse the process to install the new starter.

is the stator ,under small round cover on egine.

Remove the cables from the 1995 Harley-Davidson Road Tank motorcycle starter. Remove the retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new starter. The starter turns the engine over so it can start.

Get a shop manual. remove primary cover and primary chain. Remove rotor. Unplug stator from voltage regulator. Remove stator. Reverse process to install. You will need a manual and an impact wrench... at very least.

The Alternator which is also called a Stator is located inside the primary case. You will have to remove the primary coverand the primary chain. The Stator is bolted to the engine at the crankshaft.

there is no alternator per say. your charging system consist of a stator which is behind the clutch assembly and a regulator which is on the front of the frame. check to make sure the plug under the bike has not come unplugged. it runs from the reg to the stator.

The primary oil does three things. Lube the clutch. Lube the primary chain . And cool the stator. If Harley thought Dextron would do this, they would have recommended the use of it. Keep your Harley a Harley.

It is located inside the inner primary at the front of the motor below where the voltage regulator is mounted. The voltage regulator will have a wiring harness that plugs into the stator plug on the outside of the inner primary (the stator is located under the plug). You must remove the outer primary and the clutch basket to access the stator.

The stator is located behind the compensator sprocket inside the front of the primary cover.

It's in the Primary behind the Harmonic Balancer looking item, if I remember correctly the nut is 1 1/2".Hope This Helps.I think some early model 883's had the stator behind the clutch hub.

The most common cause is a grounded stator. Lack of primary oil or a too-tight chain can also cause excessive chaincase heat.

Follow directions in the manual for your model.

Might be a defective voltage regulator (not opening circuit on shut-down) Or a bad stator. (if the battery doesn't charge at all.) Or an electrical short.

It is behind the sprocket shaft nut.

Unfortunately the grommet is formed to the wire and does not come off. The leak is a very common problem and most of the newer models have been redesigned because of this problem. A lot of people try fixing it with silicone, and it may last for a season or so. To fix it correctly the stator must be replaced.

Many reasons are possible. Bad battery or discharging due to a short in the wiring or bad voltage regulator or stator is bad. Just too name the most common.

If it is completely bad, the bike will die as soon as the battery runs out of juice. However, this can be a very suspicious dilemna. You would be served best to have it tested on a computer at the Harley shop. Otherwise you may find yourself spending alot of money fixing the wrong things.

You will need a repair manual!

2 of the most common problems are the stator and the regulator. I just had a friends ultra glide do the same. He replaced the reg and it blew out because the stator went bad. Your best bet is to have dealer check it out.

The alternator/stator assembly is on the left side of the engine, where the two cylinders intersect. The rotor part is turned by the crankshaft, and the stator remains still. To access it you would need to remove the primary housing.
