Bought OEM stator- how to get cable out?!

Hello again.
Sooooooo, stator is bad. Looking to buy a replacement to do it myself. Recommendations on where to buy one? Is it the same as the R6 stator? Can’t really find too much info on it.

EDIT: Bought OEM stator and went to remove it, but the shop manual wasn’t very helpful as the connector is too big to slide out from the frame. The mounting boxes for too snuggly to the frame... Physically too big to pass through.

I’m not looking to cut the cable to get the new one in.

Is there a walkthrough or does anyone have any ideas? Have you done this before? Any assistance would be wonderful.

Thanks!

Howdy, never changed one on the 6r, however I've changed several on my VFR and my experience is to use oem if at all possible. The one time I used an after-market stator it only lasted approx 5k miles. Partzilla?

Go OEM. Just shop reliable internet sources like Rocky Mountain ATV, and various dealers.

Thanks, everyone. I had a sinking feeling about it, but also have had decent luck with my aftermarket parts (i.e. starter rebuild) and wanted to see if anyone had similar luck.

Hiya,
Bought an OEM, but slight issue. Anyone know if there is a walkthrough video? I can't seem to get the cable out.

Not sure I follow, where can't you get the cable out of?
Sounds odd, but from the frame itself. The connector is to big for the space provided to slide the stator cable out after it's been disconnected. Sorry, I'm a bit out of it right now, so hopefully that makes sense.

Can you cut the old one and run the new one a slightly different path? I've done this on my VFR, never had to deal with a stator on the 6R, so I don't know what it looks like.
