need help! Bike will not start again.
Here's the story...
In April my Wee just stopped running. I thought it had something to do with my ABS system, while I was riding that light(ABS) came on and then my gauges cycled like they do when I start my bike. Brought it to the shop and the mech checked out and he checked the stator out and it was burnt. After he replaced it the Wee leaked oil out the wires. The stator was after market and apparently the rubber plug had more holes then wires in it. fixed that issue. Then last Saturday, while I was riding... Bam! my wee decided it just did not want to stay running. Jumped her, but would not get over 5000rpms, bike would die.
I dont have the $$$ for another mech visit. is there a way I can check the Stator without taking the cover off? what else should I try looking at?
I am not much of a mech, but I guess I should start! this old girl is starting to drain the purse.
If any one can direct me in a direction please help, before i pull the stator cover.
The Wee is 2011 ABS with 21,000. No farkels & no extras on the elect. system (GPS, elec grips.) still stock.
