Yesterday i was riding with a buddy of mine in the mountains,and as I was coming back down my fuel light came on..thought it was no biggie! So i rode the bike in neutral because it was down hill. As i was coming down the little red light started flashing,thought maybe it was because of the fuel. As I got to the gas station the bike died completely,starting with cluster then motor choked.:(
After i put gas i push started it on and was able to get about a mile down the road when it died again. So i got someone to charge the battery and it stalled at a stoplight and died again! Has anyone had this happen??Pls help i'd appreciate it!

Find the sticky in the tech section for the service manual, download it, and it will detail the process for swapping them out. Good luck

Here is a how to, its pretty easy...pm if you need a hand with anything!


If you have stands it will help! Make sure you have a small drip pan because a small amount of oil will come out when you crack the stator cover.

1. start by removing your lower on the left side
2. unplug the stator plug.
3. remove the bolts from the stator/generator cover
4. crack the case & remove the stator & generator cover with it.(due to the magnetic it may be kinda hard.) I tend to use a small flat head screw drive so I don't mess up the gasket too
5. remove the old stator/magnetic from the stator/generator cover.
6. put new part in and put everything back together(don't over tighten any bolts)


DONE!

This post makes me curious... I wonder if the stator fried because it was not getting enough oil when coasting in neutral?
