I need to get to the stator not to turn the engine over to line up the timing mark on my fathers bike to install the new timing belt and gear. My problem is this, there is a plastic tube with a cover that is bolted in and extends over the staor hole. I was able to get the cap off, but there isn't enough room to get a socket in, let alone the ratchet.



What is this part and how do I get around it. I can tell where it's bolted on, but there is no way to get to it remove it that I can see.

that is the kick starter. Remove the rubber plug from it and then take the right side cover off the false tank. The kicker should be there. put the kicker in the hole and move it down out of the way. You probably have to tie it off. I use a 3/8 breaker bar with a 12mm socket. Lift UP ONLY on the bolt. JB

JBz, thanks, I never gave the kick start a thought.

One other question, do you (or anyone else) know what the torque setting is for the bolt tensioner pulley? I can't find it in the manual.

Why not just use the kick starter to line up the timing marks? Put the kill switch on "off", then kick away! Great for rotating the engine after the timing belt change to check for clearance. Terry

That will be a lot easier if you pull the plugs out first.
