    Default Duchesne, Utah Shovelhead breakdown, help/suggestions needed

    Hello

    I am from Denmark and riding af Shovelhead FXE 1979 around the US. The bike broke down on me in Duchesne, Utah. Itīs the charging system that does not work anymore. Luckily I carry a fresh regulator and stator with me, so I have some spare parts that hopefully will do the job. I just need a garage or a good workshop around the area. Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

    Cheers, Finkster (Soren)

    Stock primary? unfortunately gotta pull the inner pri to replace the stator. Sure you need to? Got a multi meter with you? Check for ground, continuity, voltage output and amperage output.
    Cant help ya with a shop recommendation. But your gonna need seals and gaskets for the stair, so find a shop that knows the older stuff, they might even stock what you need.
    Regulator swap can be done on the side of the road.

    Thx. for your reply.

    I was fortunate that my problem was caused by a dead regulator/rectifier and a bad battery. And not the stator!! So I replaced both and then the bike fired up, charged and I could be on my way again. Yes I had a multimeter with me. Have had to many electrical problems in my time and I now I never go on a trip without that little thing and a good crimper.

    Cheers, Soren
