Thread: Stator Removal

  1. #1

    Default Stator Removal

    Hi, My stator ate itself by chewing the magnets around it and I'm trying to replace the flywheel surround and the stator - I can see shards of magnet poking out of the flywheel which is also firmly wedged on the stator. My real question is.. how on earth do I get the stator to come away from the casing cover.. I've taken out all the bolts I can see and it still won't come off? Is there a puller tool I need to purchase?

    This is a known issue. There are several threads on this forum, the other FZ1 forum and also quite a few youtube videos that show how to replace the it.

    You will need to also drop the sump and pull all the magnets out of there too, and replace your oil filter.

    The replacement stators are built with a cup inside the rotor so the magnets can't come loose. But no recall was ever issued......

    This seems to be happening all too frequently these days.

    What year model bike was it and how many miles were on the clock?

    Angry Yamaha does not respond, does not take responsibility. Faulty engine FZ1 / FZ8 / R1

    This is a problem about defective parts of Yamaha. In Spain we are many affected by a defective rotor with loose magnets ... consult the facebook page of Yamaha Europe and you will see what I mean. We organize ourselves to ask for compensation.
    Thank you
