    Hi everybody, sorry if this has been done to death but I'm hoping you can help a crappy, noob, wanna-be bike mechanic get my bike running. I went to start my bike after having it sit for a couple months and of course, the battery was super dead and wouldn't take a charge. So I replaced the...

    I've decided to replace my stator as it's the last stone to turn over in my search for my charging gremlin. Jack from Roadstercycles as recommended ElectroSport stators ( I recently installed one of Jack's high quality rectifiers and he very kindly talked me through troubleshooting the...

    Hello all, I have been lurking around the forums for a couple months since I bought my '03 DL 1000 with 37K miles in June and am finally breaking down and asking for help because I am at a loss despite reading every post I can find about charging issues. I am more confused now than ever. I...

    Lately I have some issues with the battery charge. I switch to a new one but it was enough to 90 km riding and I stopped without battery power. So I work with the tech instructions and all of the tests was good except when I test the stator resistance the result was 1 instead between 0.2-0.7...

    I just bought a used 2011 dl650a from a dealer 2 days ago. It runs great but has no warranty and the dealer is several hours away. Now the despite (new) battery they just put in, it will not start without a jump. It was starting fine dozens of times over the last two days. I jumped the bike and...

    I was riding back from dropping a kid off at school and the bike just quit on me (in a construction zone, of course). I was able to fire it back up but it would quit again if RPMs dropped below 3k. I was luckily only a few blocks from home and coasted it most of the way. After getting home...

    Hmm.... So, yesterday morning, my 2009 Vstrom struggled a bit to start, but was fine on my commute to work. THEN, after work it struggled to start, but we were able to pop start it with a bit of pushing. although, the gauges were all wonky. i rode for about 5-10 minutes and then the gauges...

    So, I had to replace my Stator, bought an Electrosport replacement. Here's the weird thing, I bolted the cover back on, connected the wiring, and when I turn the bike on and thumb the starter something spins rapidly (the rotor?) but the bike doesn't fire and the cyclinders don't even turn. Any...

    Bike: 2008 Suzuki DL650 Miles: 57k Issue: Battery won't charge Background: I left my light on one day and had to get a jump from a vehicle that was turned off. Problems seemed to arise after that point. Initially replaced battery but problem persisted. Replaced Regulator / Rectifier, issue...

    This spring I had my mechanic install Oxford heated grips on my 2009 DL650 with 36,000 miles. We connected them to the V-Strom's factory heated grip connector. We tested them while stationary and they worked correctly, but I never had occasion to use them on the road (it being spring/summer)...

    THanks In advance for any help on this one. I've got the bike in the garage now, and I've got to do some trouble shooting. It's a 2012 DL650 with just over 40,000 miles. Last week, I got about 5 miles away from home on the ride to work. First he ABS light went on, then the LCD dash got dim...

    I'm having bad charging issues with my 2009 DL650 (37,000 miles). I won't relate the whole tale, but suffice it to say that I probably have a bad stator and/or rectifier/regulator. While investigating this issue, I discovered that the 2009 DL1000 has been recalled to replace the...

    Hi there, Long story short: 2007 DL1000. Battery died, figured the battery was just old Was in there prior to my purchasing the bike, and just did winter duty. So, I buy a new one, charge it, and within two days the battery dies again, leaving me slightly stranded. First time, it died when I...

    Does anyone know if there are any Wee Strom stator wiring/plug differences between the Australian and American markets? Mine just died after 70,000 km and the Electrosport stators looks like a good replacement. cheers John

    I bought a replacement stator and gasket, but does anyone know if I'll have to take anything more than the crank case off to replace it? I fear I'm going to have to rip the whole thing apart to get to where the wiring harness is in order to unplug the existing wires... Is the Gas Tank removal...

    Hello everyone, wondering if I could benefit from some of your experience. I have a 2005 Vee that semi regularly develops a low battery. Checked the stator and it was giving me around 60 volts at 5000 RPM. My manual says it should be producing 75 volts minimum. So I installed another Stator...
  20. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    About 2/3 of the way through a 10 hour trip I hit a serious traffic jam. Cars were backed up for about 12 miles. I killed the engine so the bike wouldn't overheat. Then the bike wouldn't start. It tried to turn over, then the battery was totally dead. A motorist next to me gave me a jump start...
