lol drain ur oil, loosen the bolts, take it off, clean the surface well, use some rvt, put gasket and new cover on and tighten bolts, then refill with oil.... may as well do a filter at the same time ;-)

Besides changing your oil or taking off your seat it dosen't really get much easier then a stator cover.

If you dont want to drain your oil...lean the bike over the OTHER direction and support it somehow, ratchet straps to the ceiling or something...This way no oil will come out

I changed mine with zero motorcycle engine experience, pretty easy.

Well you have to lean the bike over to the side opposite of the stator cover. So the side where their is no kickstand. Its really easy to just lean the bike against your wall at about a 70degree angle, it doesnt take much. What i didn was rubber band my front brake down to make sure the bike doesnt move once so ever. Also a towel or a blanket to protect your wall and the paint on your motorcycle. I just rested the weight on my handle bars the rest of the bike didnt touch my wall. When taking the stator cover off, about a tablespoon of oil will spill out but nothing drastic. Also when you apply your new gasket make sure you scrape the old one completely off, and use a high temp oil resistant silicon; such as black permatex to seal off the stator wire.
i hope these links helps you with your repair.

If you want a sealer that won't suck to remove later, get a tube of Hondabond or Yamabond 4.

when you tighten the stator and the stator cover bolts, cross tighten them so it gos on ven like changing a tire and make sure when you tighten them its not too tight or youll break the bolts or the tabs.
