James, I agree with Greywolf on using the standard slow cure JB Weld. I researched it very carefully when looking for an adhesive to hold the magnet in place on the Final Drive Minders I make for Beemers. The magnet company actually recommends it for this and the specs from JB Weld give it well over 400 degrees of temperature rating. It is rated for the oil bath environment as well.

If I were doing mine I think I might scuff the rotor surface with some 400-600 grit paper and clean very well with solvent. It appeared on mine that the adhesive the factory used came loose from the rotor surface, I think scuffing the surface may help keep that from happening again.

You left out a box for " no issues or problems"

I tried that with other issues. It doesn't work. The numbers of "no issue" people checking are so under-represented the info is useless.

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

I think it is expected that people with no applicable issues just won't answer, leaving one less category to deal with from a statistical point of view. I suppose that could have been make a little clearer in the original post, though.

Well, dang. I shoulda checked back here before proceeding.

Anyway, too late now. I did the repair Sunday evening. Took my time, adhering one magnet at a time. Made a fairly tidy job of it. Just buttoned it all up again yesterday.

Am reading 13.4-ish across the battery terminals at idle; it increases to about 13.8 at around 4000 RPM.

Is there any kind of noise from the stator and rotor when this condition is present? Like a rattle or tappety noise?

No noise that I heard. I suppose that those that had a magnet hit the stator might have had a bit of noise from that. But submerged behind all that metal and with oil on it there may not have been much that could have been heard.

Anyone running a Vee with any miles or some age needs to be running a voltage meter that they can easily see!

Can someone post pics of good versus bad/wobbly magnets? I am a crayola sort of dude and hi resolution pictures help me out quite a bit.

Thank you.

Typical "loose" magnets as they were found:



This is a brand new rotor for comparison:
