Stator Repair

Ok, shop said ignition sensor was bad so got a new one, also said stator was bad so got a new one of those, but to save cost, and learn a few tricks, I told them I'd put it back together. I've got to put in the two new parts, and put the cover back on, reattach the exhaust pipe and put the recoil back on, was wondering if somebody had the correct steps to do it cuz this kid doesn't want to screw it up, any help is awesome. Thanks

Download file Artic Cat 1990 -1998 pdf - Artic Cat Manual

This electronic manual might help you a little. Another good tool is the part fishe at Brown's Leisure World - Home Page

They give you a good idea on how the sled was put together.

A few things to watch out, make sure the key that holds the flywheel in place is in there right! While putting the flywheel on it is possible that you nock the key from its spot without noticing. Make sure you also don't leave anything in the flywheel housing that might get cought in there. Make sure you put some loctite on the flywheel nut and torque it down to the proper torque cause you don't want that thing comming out on you, won't be pretty... Take you're time do it right cause you don't want to be back in that thing. Taking a flywheel off is not fun in certain circumstances.

Another thing that should be noted on this subject is that the stators are know to go bad often on the early 600 EFI's. Its not exactly know why they go so quick. The main cause of a stator failing is heat. If I where you I would drill some holes at the bottom of the housing were the stator goes so it can breath better. The holes will let air circulate in there cooling it down some. BUT, if you're not confident in what you're doing DO NOT ATEMPT IT! Another solution here would be to get longer, possibly higher quality bolts(they are metric) and add washers in between the engine and the recoil housing.

Hope this helps you out some. I'l be back in 3 days if you got some more Q's.

Here are a couple of videos that I put together on how to test and replace stators:

Saw this post and it was helpful but I am wondering if anyone has come across having to remove a motor in order to get to the stator? I have a 1995 Arctic Cat 440 and it appears as though I can't get to the stator without removing or at least loosening the mounts on the same side of the sled as the stator? I hope that made sense. There are 4 screws to remove the recoil but the bottom looks to be a challenge. I could try and attach a picture if this does not make sense?

Thanks!
