question regarding toc modded engine cover and stator

i'm reassembling my bike today and have a question for those of you with the toc modded engine cover. how does one replace the stator in the future given that the wires coming out of it are secured to the engine cover? do you have to disconnect the wires right where they join the stator?

thanks.

fish the wires through? sounds difficult... those wires are _really_ tight in that rubber grommet. has anyone replaced the stator with the toc cover?

Knock on wood or in this case the engine cover, I haven't had to replace the stator yet with the TOC cover mod but it has been done.
Yes yoi do fish the wires through. A bit tedious but sure beats an engine pull!
I'll look and see if the ones that have gone before us have a few tricks/tips for doing it.

thanks dianna. you're right... definitely beats an engine pull. my bike is about 90% back together... should be finishing it up monday evening. psyched to get it back on the road.

I don't have the TOC cover, but I would think it'd be easiest to use a little WD40 at the grommet and pull just one wire through first, then pull the other two.
When re-assembling, do just about the reverse. A little WD40, pull two wires through, then the last one.

Just be sure to add some sealant (and try to work it into the grommet a bit) when finished.

The instructions mention pulling all three wires through at once, with the new wires attached to the old ones. I'd think that'd be a little tougher.
If they say that because it's not too easy to get to the grommet from inside the cover, use some electric tape and tape the wire to a piece of coat hanger so you have something more solid that can be more easily directed to the grommet. But that's just my opinion. Do what you think best.

One other thing I noticed about the instructions, it says take the right cover off, but the stator cover is the left one? Atleast when I think of right & left of a bike, I think riders left & right.
