Thread from 2 weeks ago asking basicly the same question:
https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16424

Tuxedoseven`s left case modification to avoid pulling engine to replace stator:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN-JEBCnhDI

By following this relatively simple and inexpensive modification the dreaded stator failure and replacement becomes no more labor intensive than most other bikes, and avoids the engine pull/tilt.

Tim Parrot Enterprises is your best source for a reliable replacement stator, and the best price.

I think that is a hack job. Taking the engine out just isn't that hard and the upside is you have a perfect opportunity to make it clean as new, and do other maintenance.

Perhaps, but TOC Manufacturing will do it for you and hit you for about $450.

John is right and you still have to pull the engine with TOC ,doing the machine work,If you don't have the necessary tools or the nerve to tackle it,Don't try it .I personally ,will applaud the the man for figuring it out and it doesn't look any different than stock when finished,I would have used High temp Black instead of orange,so it would be less obvious.But if it works right and saves a bunch of money and time,hurrah! He looks like he rides the bike daily and probably plans on keeping it for a while or he wouldn't have took the time to make this modification.Poor people have poor ways and make the most of what they have.I don't know his financial situation but this is definitely a money saving plan the first time and if the second comes around,it will be a piece of cake.
