Dumb Question about Stator

Okay, Measured resistance between stator wires ( .7 ohms) I thought " whew" then remembered to measure to ground also .7 ohms from all three "dam". That means bad unless it matters that I measured it without warming up the engine (nah - too much to hope for reight?). Any way - here is the dumb question. Isn't the stator behind the plate on the left side of the bike below the oil fill hole? It seems like if I remove the three screws in the plate - I'd be in. I must be way off base because I read that I must take out the engine. If I have to take out the engine I wonder how much I could get if I part out the bike on Ebay. Anyone ever get a feel for what one is worth in pieces?

I can understand your hopes and dreams about that but unless you have the TOC Stator cover mod there is another plate under that first one that restricts access to the stator. So yeah without that TOC stator cover an engine pull is required.

It's a huge tease. You can remove that cover, look at the stator, but you can't take it out.

By the looks of it a guy could just use a Dremel to cut out the center section and then have a machine shop cut turn a piece of aluminum on a lathe...cut out the notches for the pick up coils, drill a couple holes for securing it and viola...you have it made for around 75 bucks.

Please by all means if you find a shop that will do it for that price and it works let us all know who it is and he will get a ton of business from us I am sure. I doubt it can be done tho.

Peace

By the time you tear down the bike in order to part it out, post the parts here or on ebay, box them up and ship them, you may as well replace the stator and continue riding. The amount of effort is the same except of course for the reassembly. Yeah, you may make some money off the deal, but it won't pay for a new bike and you'd be bikeless until you find another one.
The engine pull isn't that hard. It's not easy, but not hard either. Many here have done it. Some multiple times.
You wouldn't part your car out just cause a broken part was hard to get to would you?

Exactly.

As for making the part our selves...I am talking with my dad's machinist I need to find an old cover to send him so he can look at it and see what needs to be milled...

I told him that what we want is a part that any of us that have basic basic tools such as a Dremel can do the mod themselves. He is thinking it should be roughly $50 to 75$ depending on how long it takes him to machine it along with the cost of the metal. (I had him look at the website so he had an idea of what i was talking about. And he agreed it was a rip off.)

Alright bud, you want to make some real money? Sell a kit that consists of:
  1. A template to trace a line of where to cut the inner generator cover with a die grinder or Dremel tool to remove the stator WITHOUT removing the inner cover.
  2. Another template showing where to drill and tap holes in the outer face of the same cover to mount a new stator bracket.
  3. A new stator bracket to mount the replacement stator inside the flywheel from the OUTSIDE of the newly modified generator cover.
All of this will allow people to change their stator without ever pulling the engine - even the first time. The TOC system requires an engine pull to install the modified stator cover.

This kit should be pretty cheap and will make a lot of people happy!
