    Replacing stator

    Hey all,
    I'm trying to replace stator on my 2001 Virage 700. I removed everything needed but the dam stator will not come out!! Fly wheel off, 3 bolts that hold stator off as well. I've banged on it w a rubber mallet, put a prybar to it and this thing won't budge?!? Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!

    I'm guessing my only other option is heating it up. Will I damage anything other than old stator?? Currently this one only puts out 12.1 volts so that is why I'm replacing it. Both of my skis are 2001 Virages and run very well. Of course until the ones battery dies.

    Are you sure you removed the correct bolts?

    Yes, I got it. Apparently someone replaced before and used locktite or something to glue it in extra good?

    Quick question, does timing have to be done after changing stator? When replacing them all bolts seem to have no adjustment allowable.
