F800gs Updated Stator self installed info needed please!

Need a bit of info please. Anyone out there install a new undated BMW flywheel/stator on there F800gs??

One of my question.. was the flywheel complete, and ready to bolt on? Or did you have to swap some parts off your old flywheel and put them on the new one??

Also, I am in need of the flywheel torque setting, along with the 3 bolts on the stator.

Thanks Smitty

The flywheel should come with the starter clutch installed, at least mine did. Otherwise you can easily transfer your old one over with 3 bolts.

Stator torque? Tight, with loctite on the bolts. But 10 NM to be specific.

Rotor to crankshaft - 140 NM. Got your loctite 648?

Never done this before? Lots of potential for bad things to happen. Need a torch for sure.

Reaver talks more inmates out of this project. An aftermarket stator, or two, or three, is cheaper and much easier than one flywheel transplant.

Long story, just checking what the dealer did. Have to pull the cover because of a "BAD" oil leak. I ask about locktite, and they used none. Just checking someone else's work.

Reaver, what's the deal with the torch??

Thanks for the reply's..

Reaver is packing so I'll give you a half-assed answer:

The end of the crankshaft has keyway and is tapered.
The flywheel is installed on the taper with a super-tough grade of locktite, so even with the correct puller it is recommended to heat the flywheel so that it expands, helps weaken the locktite and is easier to disassemble.

Since it would really suck to have your flywheel come loose ... BMW calls out the (not available at your local hardware store) special grade of locktite (#648) when re-assembling to help insure that doesn't happen.

Jim,

Have you done the flywheel swap yet? I know you have a stash of flywheels.

I haven't yet bought a stator to carry around.

The dealer "did" put some heat on the flywheel. And it made me very concerned. It is nice to know that is a common practice.

Thanks guys,

Smitty

Naw I have not changed mine yet... only spare flywheel I have is the old style. I found one new one up for sale on eBay but pointed Reaver to it to buy some goodwill so as to be able to pester him and test his patience on some future matter concerning my bike...

Even with the series R/R installed I probably should buy a spare stator or maybe just go ahead and install a new one .... since my OEM unit got 30K miles of cooking before I installed the series R/R .... maybe this winter

Even the garbage man wouldn't take my old stator.
