Yes - on K3 Vee

I have a combination of issues – a burnt stator (all 3 phases shorted to ground), r/r fails diode checks and the magnets are misaligned in the stator rotor. All but one of the magnets came unglued - all touching each other - leaving a huge gap in the field.

Stator failed at 52,600 miles. $280 and a 5 day wait. Oh well, It's been pretty reliable till now.

Those percentages are of those replying. In actuality, they are much lower. Most people who do not have problems and some who do have never seen this thread.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at http://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Thumbs up Still going

Even after the top end and case splitting on my motor stator leads all in spec / regulator doing its job... 36k all is well *knocks on wood*

grip heaters when I get off freeway in the morning I shut off so when I park in the parking garage at work volts are back 13.64

-Scott
2009 WEEStrom ABS - ~49K and still ticking - rehoned head at 35k after double stacking a o-ring on the oil filter caused engine to relive itself...

much lower, there are many V-strom owners who have never seen this forum, let alone the thread

but how bout those who answered no problems but later had problems, is there a mechanism to change vote ?


I would think that if the problem were even close to what we see here, Suzuki would be addressing the issue
