Question stator cover removal. - August 21, 2007, 11:33 PM

im trying to take off the stator cover to paint it. is there anything special that i need to do or is it simply unbolt and pull off? it looks too simple. the only thing that has me a little worried is the wires. electric work and myself are not the best of friends. thanks guys.


So this one time i was walking down the street in my leatha...

Not sure which bike you have, but all the stator covers that I have removed are just that simple. The wires should run through a "grommet" of sorts that should simply slide out of the side of the stator cover. Careful with the gasket surface when cleaning off the old gasket.

Yup. First time I took mine off I had this problem. Spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what bolt/latch I missed.

Once I figured it out, I used a large flathead screwdriver to pry the cover off away from the magnet.

be careful with using a screwdriver as the case aluminum is very soft and can be easily marred and be the subject for future leaks. A light thump with a rubber mallet or dead blow hammer will break the seal and pull away as you tap it. Rubber tipped glover will allow you to get a better grip enough so that you should be able to overcome the magnetic attraction as Scot mentionned.

BLUE, is this on the R6? if so, just allen wrench, should be about...7-9 bolts. The gasket may have stuck on a lil too much, so it may stick.
