    Technical Help Forum
    So obviously I've done something wrong if I am having to type the title above. 1 month ago my basically stock CDI bike had none working pickups and stator, but ran decently enough for me to ride it a bunch. The bike has been this way for a whole year, still ridable even though nothing in the...

    Technical Help Forum
    Howdy. I'm about to begin some sort of bypass operation on my 1982 Silverwing to replace the camchain/tensioner and mechanical seal, but here's my quandary: my stator works just fine, so should I replace it because what the heck, I'm already in there?
