F.Y.I., Big B, I just had my new stator (that I had to buy & install myself last year, no dealer within 140 miles of here now...) take a dump on me. I had also changed to the non shunt type of regulator I got from RoadsterCycle.
I just might go with an Electrosport unit next time. $135.oo vs. $200.oo is a lot easier for me to deal with right now...
I'm going to look for thumbscrews for case retaining bolts as that this is #4 so far for my '15.
This whole operation is getting kind of redassin' at this point for me.
The only non stock mod is a volt meter.
If you are having intermittent stator issues after the recall, check the mounting screws for the crank shaft positions sensor. Mine loosened over time. I found one of the socket head cap screws in the bottom of the crank case.
How would you feel about a 2015 DL650A that puts 13.4V on the battery at idle?
Going by my old Vee, that's too low.
Voltage went to14.2-14.5V with 3000-5000 rpms.
FWIW: zero electrical accessories on this Wee2, it's totally stock. Bike was well warmed up and idling at around 1200 RPM.
I went through a whole ordeal with the charging system on my 2007 Vee. I am not doing that again. With that bike, low charging voltage at idle was an early symptom of a failing stator. Once the problem was fully fixed, charging voltage never dipped below 14.5V, from idle to 5000 rpm, unless I was using too much heated gear.
The Wee2 in question (2015) has just under 10000 miles on it. I was looking at it for purchase, but my instincts say to walk away. Even if the guy will budge on price, I don't want to deal with having the stator rewound etc.
