    Should be M8 threads.

    M8 x 1.25 on my Ficht flywheels.

    I use a thread tap to clean out the bolt holes first. Do not thread much deeper than the thickness of the flywheel or you risk digging into the stator coils. You can use a simple wire L to gauge how deep the holes are and how far in the stator is.

    Does the fuel and oil tank have to come out to do the stator change? This is a 99 slth 700 red engine. It looks like there would be plenty of room.

    I would pull the engine, much easier to do it on a bench. The time needed to pull the engine is probably equal to the amount of grunting you will do trying to remove the flywheel in a confined space. At minimum you should remove the tank if you must do it in the hull. If you pull the engine pay careful attention to any shims on your engine mounts. Also search for the rope trick on this site it will help you remove the flywheel.

    There you go, you probably want to pull the engine to do it. I suspect it should be fairly straight forward on the 700 being such a small engine.

    If you do pull the motor, when you put it back, you have to have the pipe in the ski before you drop the motor in.

    We just did my 99 polaris slth 700 red engine stator, you do not need to remove the engine, there is plenty of room. The whole job took about 3 hours.
