Stator and balancer replacement questions

I finally removed the engine to replace my bad stator and going to try to unbolt the rotor bolt and balancer gear (left hand) bolt to change balancers. Need to find a breaker bar and reverse torque wrench to loosen and tighten these bolts but had a few questions:

- Do the 3 yellow bullet stator wires have to plug in any order when connecting the new stator?

- Is there a washer I need to replace for the gear shifter shaft, before I put the stator cover back? (I never had any leaks)

- Do you recommend any gasket sealant like "Permetex ultra black" around the stator cover gasket , around grommet , inside the wire holes?

Any other tip you can provide would be appreciated....Thanks guys!

My number one tip: Large post on the damper weight goes into the smaller hole on the damper gear. It will go together two ways, but only one is correct. Aligned this wrong on mine and it shook so bad I couldn't see the handgrips, it also walked across the floor on it's centerstand. Kinda stung my hands when I grabbed the bars.

Be aware of the alignment marks on the damper shaft and damper weight (painted stripe on the shaft - dot on the weight), this is in addition to the marks on the rotor and damper gear and the post to hole orientation.

The shim washers on the shifter shaft don't need replaced, but they need to be there. It's easy to drop the outside one and not see it, then the shaft pushes too far inward, flops around, and won't shift.

No specific order for connection of the yellow stator wires.

Thin coat of sealer can help, not too heavy though.

One last tip: The TPE stator is your best bet.

Thanks so much Spockster! I will order the gaskets and parts and tools in the next few weeks. Working and going to school doesn't leave much time for me but I plan on taking things slow and hopefully I'll be ready to ride in a couple of months. Here in Texas, weather starts improving around March.

Thanks to you and everyone in the forum for valuable tips!
