Question about 2002 Ducati ST 2
From what I am reading I should not be surprised. I was going to take it out and either rebuild it or get one off of Ebay but at first glance it looks more complicated than I thought. I have completed an electrical check regulator/stator connections look great but only get 5-22 vac off of stator and not consistent with rpm. How do I remove the stator? Any gaskets or things I should be careful of? Any pics out there of the covers removed? ,I think the stators on the 98's are oddballs, in that they produce a different wattage then others. New have more wattage, older ones have less. Either way, it's pretty much the same for replacement. You'll need to pull the left side case cover, to do that you need a case puller tool or you can make one. You can't get it off with a screwdriver or chisle. Well, maybe you can, but it'll be FUBAR. A puller plate bolts to the exiting holes for the crank shaft cover plate, 5 mm countersunk maybe? Between those two holes is a tapped hole, like 1/2-13 or 5/8-11 x 2 long bolt. That bolt will screw against the crankshaft, pulling the left side cover off. The plate thickness should be 3/8 steel or 1/2 aluminum. Throughly clean the engine cases. Remove shift linkage, clutch slave, drain radiator and all the bolts holding the left side cover on. There are a lot (15 -16?) make sure you get them all, especially near the countershaft sprocket and clutch slave area. The cover should slide off the engine dowel pins with a minimal amount of muscle on a 8 adjustable wrench. If not, you missed a bolt. Some oil will leak out when the cover is removed. The stator is held in the case cover by two or three bolts. Measure the height of stator in the case for reference. It should slide out of the case with the bolts removed. It's a tight fit, but not a press fit. Try these guys for rewinding or they may have a replacement stator in stock. www.ricksmotorsportelectrics.com Reassemble in reverse. Make sure the stator sits squarly in the case, not cocked to one side. Confirm the measured height. The stator/magnet will pull the cover off center. Use a rubber mallet to tap the cover into place, using the dowel pins for visual alignment. I use permatex blue to seal the case when reassembling. It's not that difficult to do, just time consuming, maybe 3 - 4 hours to get the cover off.,,,
