1990 L - Alternator Removal

Hi all,
I am trying to remove my Starter motor to give it a bit of a health check.
I need to remove Alternator first.
I have removed the 3 x mounting bolts and tried to give it a little persuasion with a driftÖubt itís pretty hard to get onto and not very willing to move.
Anybody know how I can get it out ?

Didn't go down to look at my bike but I think you need to remove sprocket cover first

Re: 1990 L - Alternator Removal

You could use 2 of the long bolts to rock it - just insert the bolts part way in (or any clean metal rod) and rock it side to side - it should pull outward, disengaging the gears as you do. The seal can get dry and semi bond with the case, rocking should work and pull outward - not had one be too much of a problem - don't hit anything with a hammer though !

Thanks nickr, sprocket cover is off and have been rocking it with a couple of phillips head screw drivers. She's very solid. The vike looks like she has been sitting a long time......so must be bound up a bit. I will drench the connevtion in WD40 and try her again mext weekend.

Thanks.

Thanks to all that chipped in.
I eventually got her out by taking the carbs off and prising it out with a screw driver she was very firm in place.

Sorry I forgot to say that I remove the carbs when I remove the alternator ! - glad all is well now . . . better make sure that seal has nice fresh rubber grease (red synthetic stuff) on it when you refit it.
