Replacing the stator is a pretty standard procedure regardless of the sled make or model, so you should be able to find plenty of info on replacing the stator in a snowmobile. It’s pretty easy.... Pull the exhaust, pull the starter off, remove the flywheel cup, remove the flywheel and the stator is underneath the flywheel. You will need a flywheel puller or some type of harmonic balancer to get the flywheel off. I bought a universal flywheel puller from Dennis Kirk for about $30 but I hear you can use a harmonic balancer or steering wheel puller available at an auto parts store. Plenty of people to help you here, so ask any questions and good luck.

Flywheels can be a PITA sometimes but it is basic follow the advice above. I used a harmonic balancer puller I had but one can rented for free w/ deposit at local auto-zone, advanced, pep boys etc. You will need to buy long bolts from homedepot/lowes etc most likely. Take your time, snug it up tight and let set 15 min, tap draw bolt w/ hammer few times and tighten more, wait & repeat. It WILL pop and make you think something broke Get high grade bolts Below is pic of when I did my polaris

I prefer the harmonic puller over the steering wheel puller style as it grabs 4 point, They are cheap to but and available local. I also give easy taps on the flywheel when I tap the center bolt good luck

This is the video I used to help me remove my first flywheel. It is crucial to get the center bolt nice and tight against the crankshaft and to use strong bolts on the outside 3 flywheel holes (you might break a few, that’s normal) I used ones off a thermostat manifold from an old sled that were perfect for the job. When all is good and tight, smack the center bolt sharply with a mini sledge or similar. If it won’t come off the first try, leave it bolted on nice and tight overnight and try again the next day. Also, heat helps- apply a little heat right on the shaft using a propane torch, or boiling water.

That vid above is great and I also watched it before pulling mine. Polaris flywheels ARE stubborn.... I'm not a fan of using heat as damage can be done if not careful. As mentioned above, sometimes getting it wicked tight and leaving over night will help. Also, I remove the drive belt and use a ratchet strap on the clutch side to keep engine from turning. Get it as tight as you can and go have a beer, the tap center bolt of puller w/ hammer re tighten and have another beer. IT WILL come off
