Hey guys... anyone local to Orange County that could "supervise"/assist me in changing my stator and relocating my rectifier?

This will be my first attempt as it is my first bike and
I have the money to have a shop do it, but I'd much rather do it myself, just to have that knowledge and maintenance experience under my belt.

If any locals here and willing to help I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks guys.

Are you a complete wrenching noob? No car wrenching experience at all ? I believe you'll find videos on it on YouTube . It's really not that hard .

YES... a complete noob, and I actually did find a couple videos that were really helpful, and I feel comfortable working on my own bike as I would my car. But a relative of mine is borrowing my car right now and seeing as this is my primary source of transportation.... I don't wanna fuck it up.

then dont fuck it up. if you have seen videos and feel comfortable with what they are doing then just follow the video. take your time and be gentle with things. its very easy. obviously this is my only advice since i am no where near OC, or id help out :thumbup

The main problem I find with wrench noobs is that they over/under tighten bolts and screws. I'd buy a torque wrench if I were you

I don't remember the exact torque specs, sorry. Do you have a copy of the factory service manual? If not, I suggest you get one.
