A few days ago I started on my XV920 that I recently bought. Its my first time working on a bike so it's a little overwhelming but so far it's going alright. I opened up the left side of the engine because it didnt start and the starter wasn't sounding healthy.
As expected the starter gear looks pretty worn down so I'll flip that around and see if that makes a difference. But I also came across this.
The stator coils seem to have some wear on them. I'm thinking this would render it useless because the coils are touching now but I honestly don't know. Also I have not a single clue how it would have worn like this. Any suggestions?
All help will be massively appreciated.🙏
