Question Stator replacement w/o engine removel?

Was looking at Electrosport product details of ESG050 stator and universal fitting PDF appears to indicate it could be put in w/o engine removal. Anyone know if this is so?

Installation instructions have you cutting old stator wires, withdrawing old stator, threading new wires through grommet, fitting clips, hooking them to connection block and then, connecting up to and putting in new stator. This indicates to me connection block is in the housing under the grommet. Does this procedure really work on a Vulcan VN750A7 1991?

There are plenty of stator removers on this forum so one of them will probably pipe in here directly, but you do have to remove the engine, or at least unbolt it and tilt it to get the side removed and get to the stator. There is a mod you can have done if you send in your stator cover engine side where they slice it and fix it where you can open it up without pulling the engine, and I think it runs around $500.

That proceedure will only work on the vn700/750 with the TOC stator cover modication. If you don't have the TOC cover you will have to remove the engine.

I never understood why Kawasaki never modified their engine cover to allow stator removal without engine removal. It seems like such a logical modification. TOC deserves a big thumbs up for this mod, and Kawasaki gets a thumbs down for not licensing the mod from TOC and building it in to all their 750's. Too late now, anyway!

I never understood why they couldn't have made the frame section removable on both sides and let the engine be a stressed member if they had to,wouldn't life be great then.And I still Love to drag My mouse across of the last part of your signature ,that never gets old.

They could have done it but it was over looked, you have to remeber our engine was originaly designed to go into the 750 Ninja.

You have to almost completely disconnect the engine from everything no matter what. Taking it out only adds 10 moinutes to the job. I like working at bench level anyway. That's where mine is right now.

What about a 2004 VN750, Would the engine need pulled to do a stator replacement? Also, how long is the average life span on the stock stator. I'm mechanically challenged and nervous about this stator replacement thing...
