    Question Installing Stator Cover

    Hey guys, I just want to ask if you guys can give me tips on installing a stator cover. things like drain the oil first, tip it over etc etc etc....

    also, Is it necessary to add cement when installing the stator? yes, no, maybe so? no need? yes indeed? Thanks Guys and Girls!

    be watchful of: the dowels that either come out with the cover or stay in the engine case; and any gearing mechanism that might dislodge itself. I wouldn't worry about draining the oil from the oil plug, although some oil will ofcourse drain out when you remove the cover. use a torque wrench to re-install; no need for any sealant.

    There's minimal oil under there. Put a pan under when you remove it. Use a new gasket if possible. I'd blue locktite the stator and cover if possible. On any work where you're opening up the engine, be clean and organized. It's a pretty simple job.

    Oil isn't that expensive. And if you do this job with the bike on the side stand you're going to find that at least 1/2 of it will come out anyway due to the lean angle.

    I say drain the oil to save the mess. If the filter is quite new there's no need to replace it.

    Other than that it's a pretty simple job. Be careful with the tools around the stator inside the cover and with handling the stator. A slip of a sharp tool or a bump against a sharp corner could cut a winding wire on the stator and if that happens it's a messy repair.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
