Speaking for the DL 1000 only, I am seeing a rather high percentage of stator failures that also include loose magnets. I can't say "most" at this time, but it is a considerable percentage.

Add me to the casualty list. First and last Suzuki: O5 V with 29k mi, loose magnets and bad rotor. Found 5 loose magnets, one broken, one smashed into grounds. Using about 1 qt oil / 1.5k miles, undoubtedly related. Is Homer Simoson still on.Suzi's engineering staff?

Just hoping to get this POS in salable running condition (with full disclosure) with minimal blood loss, thenshop for a Honda. Anyone with two intact magnets or a decent salvage rotor for sale? Much appreciated.

As per my post on the charging problem thread:
Just found one magnet loose and shifted along with one fried pole on the stator. Changes in the on board volt meter readings helped in early detection.

While I've got it on my mind and I took the photos, I'll post them here, as this seems to be where I ended up when searching this problem.

The magnet dimensions for an '07 DL1000.

60 mm end to end (not taking into account the curvature)
33 mm wide
8 mm thick







I have four loose ones available, marked with the correct side facing "out" so the polarity matches up upon re-installation.

Hope this helps someone out.

Added another 2004 to the list. 4 out of 6 magnets were shifted. One coil was burned and my R/R is trash. I've also owned this bike for three weeks.
