having issues with my 07
In the past couple of days my 07 has been acting up. Doesn't want to idle, keep having to adjust it. When pulling the clutch in it dies sometimes if i don't rev it a little to catch it.
Fast forward to this morning. Start it to go to work. Headlights were aimed at the house and I noticed a slight bright, dim, bright, dim pattern. Drove to work no issues. On my way home it was about 90* outside. Sitting at a light bike was sitting at 207*. Started idling erratic and died. Noticed a puff of smoke from the left fork area. Didn't really want to start but I revved it and got going. parked at home, seemed to idle fine. Pulled the plastic cover off by the fork and made sure nothing was burnt or messed up on my wiring. Looked fine.
My guess is, the stator or rectifier is starting to take a shit. Probably looses voltage at idle, fuel pump slows down and she idles bad or dies. Stator and rectifier is about $300. Really hoping to make a track day on oct 6... kind of a bummer.
P.S. the bike is coming up on 13k miles. All original electronics. Also has power commander 3.
