rotor magnets falling off

I looked all over this section and can't believe that nobody mentioned the rotor magnets coming unglued and really fouling things up. This is poor design in my opinion. And what about the clutch wheel with such poor bearings that some guy is making good money re-manufacturing a proper one?

If you get to it...
and you can't do it...
then there you jolly-well are,
aren't you?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

NewSuz. Re loose magnets: 5 of 6 loose on my 05 V at 29k miles, incl one smashed to grounds and one broken in three pieces. Been using oil too, no doubt from metal grounds. Anyone with two magnets to get my first and last Suzuki salable would be appreciated.

Is Homer Simpson still on engineering staff?
