I've had my charging system fail 3 times
first time I was scoping out and "adventure" ride in northern New Hampshire about 100 miles from home and about 8 miles away from remote civilization on a forest service road. luckily I had a hicup that got my attention to look at the voltmeter. I got to the top of a fairly steep downhill section and stopped the bike, checked battery connections, unplugged my headlights, and coasted down the hill to start the bike, at first I thought it might come back, but it's cause I was on a mostly downhill, the voltage would actualy climb, slowly from 12.3 back up to 12.8 (but not the normal 13.8) every time I had to get on the throttle it would drop, the more throttle the faster it would drop, I made it back to civilization and the highway, anything over 3500rpm would suck the voltage down and spudder (fuel pump pressure?) I made it 60 miles to the beginning of a long uphill off ramp and started pushing 1 mile later with plenty of traffic, guy & his wife on a harley stopped and asked if I needed gas, I said, no, I need a charging system, he was a christian biker preacher on his way home from a sunday sermon, he said "wait here, I'll be back in a half hour with a trailer
second failure I was riding to my son's house, it failed about 300 feet from his driveway, smooth, level, paved push
third time I was on my way home from a late evening meeting, I got a little warning, unplugged one headlight made it another 5 miles, still had to push about 2 miles, again to my son's house
