I'm guessing that one of the inner case ribs isn't completely severed. This thin piece of metal will give a spring effect. Get in close with a flashlight and check that out. If that isn't it, then the hole that you cut isn't wide enough and the stator is hung up. Working the small cutting wheel to the outside of the hole (reaming) will enlarge it.Tux...
I'm in the middle of the process and have an interesting situation. After cutting the inside case, I'm getting a resistance like almost a spring loaded feeling and am unable to pull the stator. I've cut the the stator wires and have moved the p/u coil wires... Am I hanging up on something. The service manual shows no spring behind the stator? I've got a '01 750... HELP!!!
