Hey, everyone. Got a new stator from Ricks motor sports for my 79 CB750. Installed it in august and it ran like a champ! Put it away for 4 months to recover from wrist surgery. Came back to fire her up, all was fine. Went to twist the throttle to about 3 grand and the bike shut off. I looked down and this is what i saw. The rotor bolt came loose and wreaked havoc inside, destroying the cover and the brushes/ brush housing. The Rotor is chipped a bit. When i installed it, i used an air gun and it was on as tight as can be. Any ideas? why this would have happened?
I would like to see what is hidden under the cover. The rotor might have come apart. The bolt might still be in place, and tight.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"
