you had better be a damn good welder to consider cutting and re-welding your structural frame back together. If you can't weld like a professional welder, I would never ever consider doing this. I've pulled the engine before, it sucks, but it beats causing structural damage to your motorcycle which could potentially prove fatal. That frame rail is absolutely critical to the structure of the bike.

to replace the stator I don't think you need to remove it, it only allows access to the pickup coils.

It'll dance around like a combination of bad swingarm bearings, steering bearings and front wheel bearings. Do not ask me how I know kinda like having sex with a meth whore on payday

"...is the extra time saved by not taking out your motor worth your life???" Yes,yes it is. So cut my frame today,took like a brief moment.Those (cover) screws are different lenghs,no mention of this either.Finally got that cover off there,needed a little convincing (tapping with hammer)....dropped that cover what to my surprise(!!)the Stator is attatched to the back side of the cover with some "funky" screws!!Also those suckers were tight!!Thought that the Stator would remain in that spot on the engine,had no idea it was screwed into the cover...no-one seemed to mention this here.Also there was a tiny Zip tie holding wires together in there needed cut,no-one mentions this either..

It's pretty much given that side case screws will be different lengths. Yup, be sure and put the zipties back.

It's been in every DIY I've ever read on here. Not sure which DIY you're using.

I've replaced my stator a few times, but used a DIY on here to do so the first time and it was very detailed. Given that you didn't know anything at all about the stator (how it's mounted, what it's mounted with, what it's mounted to.......) I'd gather you didn't read any DIY's on stator replacement. The one's on here are very handy for people working on their bikes. I put up a couple pictures of how I cut my frame, but didn't say a word about a single bolt on the bike relating to the stator because...... it's a thread on how I cut my frame. Not only is it not a DIY, it's not even a how to cut a frame. It's a pic of how I did mine. Make a thread on your project and show folks how it turns out and what you did.

Unseasonably warm weather in the south for the last couple of days has given me the opportunity to get the bike out wash it and ride a little bit. it’s been put up since November. It is the one-year anniversary of doing this install and it has been absolutely fabulous. I’ve had no issues whatsoever and today I am pulling back some paint to check the structural integrity of the frame and there is no wear, no cracks, no issues whatsoever. I’m very happy with this mod. 10/10

Also on a sidenote this ricks stator has been absolutely flawless with over 14 V at idle and no degradation whatsoever since I installed it. I’ve put 6500 miles on it.
