2013 Road Glide Stator replacement

OK, I have the manual, looked online at various videos, and now must ask the question. Do I have to remove the inner primary to replace the stator on the 2013 Road Glide Custom? Older models you didn't have to. It seems there is a lip that doesn't allow clearance to remove the rotor/compensator assy. Does Harley do this just to discourage do it yourself'ers?

Really? Looking at older models, the lip isn't there and the wall thickness is thinner on them. I am a little apprehensive on grinding away on the primary. Thanks for the info.

It's just like 5 bolts to remove the inner. Just me, but i would not grind on the inner primary, it's to easy to remove it.

Do it! I just did this on my 12rgu. I used a dremel and barely removed any material, No issues. I was also able to change stator without removing clutch assembly.

Do I have to totally dismantle the clutch assy or will it remove as one unit?

Undo and loosen the clutch adjustment nut and allen screw, pull the C clip and remove the adjuster part and there is a nut behind it, left hand thread to remove. It will slide out, if the chain is off.

Thanks, Got to the bolt. Gotta run and get a 1 3/16th socket. After all the tools and part I bought, it might have been cheaper to have it done. Thanks for the advice. All because of a bad stator. Hope I never have to replace another one.

The 13 shows as having the same inner primary as my 10, and I pulled mine without pulling the primary or cutting anything. It took a bit of wiggling but it came out just fine ... albeit sideways IIRC.
