I’m going to be late if show up at all.  

My ride died on me at the rest stop on I-90 between  Bozeman and Billings.  Waiting for a tow back to Bozeman for service that won’t be open until Monday.   So I’ll be staying a few days in Bozeman.    

This hasn’t been my day to say the least.  

Kevin.

Stators are notorious.  Have you if ever, changed it in the last 25,000 miles?

I have replaced two stators while on tours.  In both cases, is behaved like it had a dead battery.  Matter of fact, the first time, I did replace the battery.  Hope you get it worked out nd continue on your way.

Feel for you Kevin I’m having a problem as well. Believe it is the stator again. Will limp into Custer and if needed order one in. Good luck with your bike.

Don’t know if stator has been replaced.  If not replaced as park of normal maintenance then not likely.  

 

At least it died when I was at a rest stop and not out in the middle of nowhere without cell service to call a tow.   Was able to book a hotel for at least 3 nights. 

 

I’ve also called the Rocket about my predicament. 

 

Will update when I have news.  

Kevin

Stators go, I'm on my 3rd. No way to know or maintenance.

Lisa and I will be in Custer tomorrow afternoon. If needed we can pick up anyone having problems, within a reasonable distance. We are trailing in so it will be easy to load up a bike and head in. f95339de02add21e28cfc42270069678.jpg

It’s not a VFR gathering unless someone has electrical issues. We spent the last couple of hours riding twenty minutes and swapping batteries to get mine to the hotel this spring. Turned out to be burned wires between the stator and r/r. Back on the road in about an hour thanks to Todd.
