Removing generator cover

Quick question:

I'm replacing my generator cover since it's badly scratched. While I'm in there, I'm going to see if the stator is the old or new style, so I can know if I have to plan to replace it.

My question is-do I need to drain the oil to replace that cover and inspect the stator? I know it's open to the crank, but suspect the oil level will be below it?


Thanks,

Larry

The magnets are strong of course. Handy tip - unscrew the center port plug thingie and push against the rotor with a suitably beefy Phillips screwdriver while pulling the stator cover off to keep the rotor from coming out with the stator. You want to control the movement of the rotor when pulling it out and putting it back in, as it has washers and stuff. You won't want them falling into the engine.

The rotor may not "index" into the gear at first when putting it back together. I put the bike in 6th gear and used the rear tire to slightly bump the gear position to it all liked up and dropped in.

Also, when putting it back together, the strong magnets will pull the stator cover back into place with authority. Do not get your finger in there as the poor Brit did in the 1st video Fermic37 linked to. Scroll to 9:35 - the case and cover edges are sharp, the magnet strong. Poor guy, he bled for the cause

Did not find the job difficult at all and there is nothing terribly complex here, but watching those videos helped a lot. It is good to know what to expect.

Good advice, thanks. And for the record, Andy ManCam is a member here-love his FZ vids!


Thanks again-
