Anyone know where this guy goes? I found it in the stator area, looks to be broken in 1/2 so some sort of washer. I looked at a microfiche of that side but didn't see anything.

Yeah, it was pinned back behind the stator coils bracket, there is also some damage on the coils themselves.  This motor has been apart before as there are some non OEM bearings already in it.  I'm guessing the last time they put it together the little bugger got picked up by the flywheel and they didn't realize it.  I'll have to check the transmission shaft to see if its there or not. That for sure was not the microfiche location I was expecting it to be on thats for sure

Nice.  Just saw this.  There's another MT in the family that has lost a bit of love.  Never thought an Elsinore, with all of the unobtanium in parts, could be a budget build.

In Theory im bringing both

Nice.  Just saw this.  There's another MT in the family that has lost a bit of love.  Never thought an Elsinore, with all of the unobtanium in parts, could be a budget build.

My hope here is that the bike is mostly complete, I nabbed up a box of spare parts (which all need work) to fill in a couple gaps, and the rest i'll either figure something out or i'll go without.  I need to get out to the garage and see if that trans shaft bushing deal was extra or if its missing.  If its missing need to find a replacement for that so I can get the motor back together.  This got kinda back burnered since I picked up the KZ, but with the motor taking up my entire workbench i need to get back to it before I Start losing things.

Get in touch with E.  He's done a bunch of research and has collected sources.  He might be able to help you out with sourcing and such.

E. might also tell you of the 7th level of insanity you may have entered.  Something about unobtanium, hipsters, and gremlins..

I've been talking to be E about it. I hope his bike is Satan himself, and mines fine. Hard to tell yet, it looked good, but there are already things in the wrong places.  His is also an MR which parts are generally a little more $$ than the MT

Need the workbench so I decided I better get the mt motor back together. Debated just using the gasket or using sealer, decided to just use the gasket. Got the clutch side back together tonight. Stator side tomorrow. Then the workbench will be clean and I can get the carbs from the KZ apart and cleaned up.
