Introduction

This article is one of a series that describes how to disassemble, work on, and reassemble the Road Star engine. This particular article explains how to install the generator assembly. See the Complete Engine Tear Down, Orientation article in this website for details.

Be sure you refer to the service manual through all phases of this project.

 

Installing the Generator Bolt and Cover

Generator Shaft Bolt, Yamaha Road Star

 

First, fold over a copper washer. Wedge it between the lower teeth of the primary drive gear and the clutch-housing gear (a.k.a. clutch basket). This will lock them.

Put on the generator shaft bolt and washer from the engine's left side. Tighten the bolt using 20 ft-lbs of torque. Refer to the service manual for details.

Remove the copper washer!

Install the generator shaft cover (two bolts) with O-ring. Use 7.2 ft-lbs of torque, which is 86.4 in-lbs.
