Whelp, my worst nightmare: Stator is dead - got a silly question for ya!
Alright, been a Vulcan owner now for one full year, due to electrical problems, I may have put about 300 miles max on it.
Finally narrowed down enough problems for it to be nothing BUT the stator, and took it to a mechanic to get verification.
I'm not nearly experienced enough nor do I have the tools to get this puppy switched out - and the bike has 30k miles on it with a lay-down by the previous owner. I just can't seem to justify paying to fix it.....
I love this bike! I really don't think I CAN sell it! I'd like to enjoy it for the summer and then revisit fixing it vs. getting something new next season.... so...
Has anyone ever just rolled around with a portable emergency battery-jumper with a bad stator???
I know it's weird (and cheap) but I want to enjoy my bike without paying out the ear for tools/time/mechanic for just 3-5 months of pleasure.
Any input is appreciated.
