Replacing stator for Suzuki Bandit 250 please help!

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by bensr, Apr 29, 2008.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to help a friend replacing the stator for the bandit, got the bolts of with the rattle gun but the broken stator is still stuck. I was told to go to Suzuki dealer because they have special puller to get it off. I was quoted for 2 hours worth of work. Can anyone tell me what type/size puller required? any tips or technique to get it off?

    If my questions are not clear please tell me and I could try to post a photo to explain.

  2. Rotor puller tool for most bikes is about $30, phone a few bike
    shops and tell them what you need and someone will have it.
    Here is an example of one on ebay (for a Kawasaki, won't fit your bike):

  3. Geez thats a bit rich, with cover already off it's about 2mins work, screw puller in tighten centre bolt and hey presto!

    Sounds like a rip-off to me!

    If you have a paint stripper heat gun (electric) you could try applying gentle heat around centre of rotor and apply slight leverage pressure with a cheap 3-legged puller from Supercheap and it should fall off!

  4. $30 from a bike shop, or about $5-$10 from your friendly bolt shop. Just get a hole measurement (Exterior, approximate, and thread pitch/ (Or ask for an Metric-spec bolt), probably likely to be a 1.5 thread (E.G. a M24 1.5 mm thread pitch, where the nominal diameter is 24mm and the distance between each thread is 1.5mm

  5. Thanks everyone. I finally got the flywheel out using universal puller from repco. I tried to start the bike but then heard the sound. I opened up the alternator again and found one piece of magnet came loose from stator! Does anyone know special bonding glue I can use to glue it back on?

    Thanks again.
