I used to own a really good horse named Wimpie. Not sure if that is a complement or insult, but it is true.

Welcome to the Forum. Suggest that you install a volt meter if you don't already have one installed. There have been a few posts of magnet migration and stator failure on the Vee. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000-...-pictures.html has got good info. Ride safe.
