Took off the left side engine cover the other day to find that the gasket was in terrible shape. Bike was a basket case and seriously neglected. I assume it sat in a field or something because the flywheel was super rusty and the stator and engine case were covered in white residue.

Long story short I bought a clean flywheel on ebay just in case, cleaned most the residue with a toothbrush and did the electrical tests for the stator wiring and everything was within spec so hopefully there won't be any issues with the charging system.

Only question I have is should I lightly sand the rusted outer faces of the stator before putting it back together?

Just my 2 cents worth But since the motor runs off the stator I would remove it and clean everything . Also behind it. Making sure the ing trigger and pick up are clean.
