I replaced my magneto cover. Everything went back together fine except it was really hard to get the magneto to slip back into part that spins on the outside ( Had to tap on cover to get it into place). When I started the bike I reached down and felt the cover. It was the first thing that started to get hot. By the time the bike warmed up the cover was very hot. I shut the bike off and plan on taking it back apart tonight.
There is only one way the magneto mounts to the cover and the cover has allignment mounts.

This is my question could the allignment be off and the magneto is now rubbing and causing heat from friction? or is it normal for the magneto cover to be really hot?

I would be more than grateful for any help.

Thanks
Kawman

What I refer to as a magneto cover is the round engine cover on the left side. I might be using the wrong term for it but I think "OutsiderZX12R" is correct with stator/generator cover.

If anyone could start their bike and feel the left side cover and see if it gets hot quickly would be a big help. My cover gets hot in about 3 minutes.

Thanks

Ynot,
Thank a lot for the info out of the service manual. Something that I need to get real soon if I keep working on this bike.

Do you have the ability to scan that in a word .doc and e-mail it to me at [email protected] I am having a hard time reading it.

Thanks
Kawman

I got your .doc and it was a big help. It looks like I did it right but I am still going to take it back a part and look at it.

Thanks I appreciate the help.

If you are ever at Deals Gap let me know I owe you a cold beer. I live in Knoxville, TN about 45 minutes away.
