Attention! It is not allowed to operate the generator with the battery disconnected. This will cause power surges that can damage the voltage regulator and other electrical devices on the motorcycle's electrical system.
The generator stator is mounted on the left engine cover, and the rotor is located on the crankshaft.
To remove the generator, you must first drain the oil from the engine (see «Changing engine oil and oil filter») and remove the left engine cover (see «Clutch - disassembly and assembly, replacement of discs and springs»). It is also recommended to remove the air filter housing if the alternator stator is to be replaced (see «Air filter housing - removal and installation»), to gain access to the alternator wire connector. Having removed the left cover of the engine, hold it on the weight and remove the wires of the generator rotor assembly with a rubber seal from the seat.
1. Using a 10 mm wrench, unscrew the bolt securing the generator wires.
2. With a 5 mm hex wrench, unscrew the four bolts securing the stator to the cover.
3. Remove the generator stator from the cover.
The generator rotor is mounted on the crankshaft of the engine with a tightening torque of the mounting bolt of 93 Nm. This assembly is maintenance-free and does not require dismantling when diagnosing and repairing the motorcycle battery charging system.
We install the generator in the reverse order, tighten the stator bolts with a torque of 12 Nm.
