We are having trouble understanding why you are having trouble. You have said that you can't get the stator (the part with the wiring and coils) off, and then asked how to get the flywheel off (the part that turns on the end of the crank). Since the flywheel has to come off first, there's no logic to your question.

  • Remove the flywheel by removing the nut from the crank and using a proper flywheel puller. FAILURE TO USE THE CORRECT PULLER MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE FLYWHEEL. You might even hurt yourself.
  • Remove the 3 bolts holding the stator plate to the crankcase and remove the stator
What part of this have you not done?
