Remove inner stator cover

Can move the engine over enough to remove outer stator cover without completely removing the engine? I am at the point where I am ready to remove remove the bolts that hold the engine to frame and it appears that I might be able to just move the engine enough to get the cover off without the hassle of disconnecting the bell housing.

Also what gasket sealer do you recommend when I replace the new/used cover and on the bell housing if I do have to remove it.

Okay why u ask. I broke off one of the pickup coil mounting brackets while adjusting the gap on the pickup coils...used an impact driver to loosen one of them and hit it too hard. I know...dumb.

Thanks,Wayne Wicker

What you are referring to is an engine tilt, and it is possible. I'd do a quick search for that and you should find some info.

VN750, 2002. Remove inner stator cover

Can I move motor over enough to remove inner stator cover w/o removing the motor? I am at the point of removing the engine mounting bolts. It appears there may be enough wiggle room.

What gasket sealer do u recommend ?

Why u ask...I broke off the pickup coils while adjusting the coil gap clearance. How. By using an impact driver to loosen the screw on one coil...should have used vice grips. Dumb! And this is not the first time I have adjusted the gaps.

Thanks,
Wicker, San Antonio

BTW I bought a 2010 900LT, w5000miles for $5000 to replace the 750, but after riding the 900, I plan on keeping the 750 as it is handles much better for city riding. I love it!

my stator walk through write up in my sig line will help you out, but I recommend going ahead and dropping it, you will get a much better seal on your gasket, with the tilt it is hard to keep the mounting surface oil free and you are only a few more steps away!

After pulling the mounts it's still kinda hard to tilt it and get the cover off, I just did a stator pull and left the carbs and cables intact so there was less stuff to hook back up. It still requires a bit of wiggling around to get it to a point where the cover will come off.
