Need Help/Electrical/ASAP!!!!!

Long story. Installed speedohealer, has since taken it out because that is the only thing I have changed on bike in 2 years and it rran perfectly before. Thought stator went out, dealer checked it and say's its fine. They are thinking magnet on flywheel? Anyone hasd this happen?? Bike will start fine, and run fine for about 10 or 15min then fi light flashes, instrument panel flashes, then bike dies, battery is drained, wont start. Charge it and it runs fine again for 15min or so then repeats. Battery is 6 months old and tests fine. Electical system is bone stock except for HID lights which have been problem free for 3 years. Worst part is I'm riding to the Gap leavign July 9th, so I'ver gotta bet on this ASAP. Any ideas would be wonderful. Dealer is clueless and wants to just start throwing parts at it, which my warranty wont cover unless it is the part in question, and I cant return electrical parts after they have been installed. 2007 zx10, 10,500 miles

I would guess it has to be the stator or the rectifier from what you're describing man....had the problem in the past but mine ended up being the stator but i changed it and the rectifier anyway since i had already opened both and wasn't sure which one was out at the time..best of luck and hope you get her running right before your gap run man!!!!

Could be man, if it's not the stator then i would "almost" bet some cash that it would be the rectifier BUT that seems like something they would have identified at the dealer if they already checked the stator? kinda strange......

I agree. I think the delaer is full of it, and either hasnt tested the stator or just want sth ecsh. When I told them it was a warranty bike then it became well we will see whats up. What a rip-off. When it was my money they wanted to throw parts at it. I've called Kawi consumer affairs and am having them contact the dealer.

Have you checked the codes from the FI light?

No because the FI only comes on about 2min before bike dies, and by then battery is dead. When its fully charged the FI wont come on

If it's a factory warranty, then Kaw pays the dealer to do the repair work. Kaw may not pay as much as you would, so the dealer may be somewhat less enthusiastic to do warranty work, but they do get paid to do it.

yeah, but Kawi will only cover the part it needs. Ive been thinking. I installed the speedohelaer then this started. So I un-installed the speedohealer. Im wondering if anywhere near that plug there is a wire that run to the charging system?? Maybe it came loose
