Stator cover..

Ok, I had an accident yesterday, and cracked my stator cover. Now, It leaked a BUNCH of oil out, but is this normal or is it leaking from somewhere else? Everywhere that I read for the writeup's, it says when they remove the cover, a tiny bit of oil will come out, but mine from sitting in the parking lot, leaked a nice puddle.

Will the actual stator need to be replaced, or just the cover?

Should that much oil leak out? Out of panic, I tried to start the bike right after the get off, could that have damaged it?

It will leak a small puddle but it shouldnt completly drain all of the oil. If u started it it will be alright as long as u didnt let it run dry. Best bet is to check the stator for damage if its alright then get a new cover and mount the stator on it. U can get some silicone seal run a line on the inside part of the cover where it mounts up to the engine and bolt it on. Dont tighen the bolts all the way cuz the seal will ooze out. Wait an hour or so and then finish tighening the bolts.

Did you damage ot by trying to restart the bike with a cracked stator cover?
Possibly, but if you pull the cover and bring it and the stator by I'll check it for you and let you know if it's o.k.

If it was the other persons fault though, you really should get the bike to a shop and have the damage quoted for their insurance.

Patrick,

The INS company is gonna be a nighmare, I'm trying to figure out when I can get the bike to you. Im not to concerned with the INS right now, just getting it going. How soon do you think you could get that gasket? Im thinking either tues or wendsday I will get it up to you.

ya. it can. if its on the kickstand it will because it's leaning to that side. and it depends on how high the crack is. i'd say the MOST i've lost after that is like 3/4 of a quart.. ish.... puddle about 2 feet in diameter.

I would take this opportunity to replace it with a stout billet cover. If you're gonna do the work anyway, you might as well install one that won't crack from a simple get-off.

Here's one for example: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BILLE...spagenameZWDVW
