So, here he, (my 18 year old son) is ready to hit the open road with the 'ol man.
We need a bigger bike!
Off to our dealer, he has this really nice 750 Vulcan sitting in the back. The cam gear bolt came off and went nuts in the engine.
So, new parts up the arse in it, a new stator, tires.
"Son, how can you beat this deal, a new motor, a good mid sized bike, the price is right, (we traded in my '78 550 Suzuki, broke my heart to see it go
He takes the new scoot home, between work, track, girls has a little time to ride it.
Finally we head out for a "good" ride.
We get 75 miles out, it dies!
We charge it up off my vulcan, pull all the fuses and limp it home.
Hmmmmmm, 11.5 volts at 3000 rpm with the lights out.
Volt. reg check good, it's gotta be that (*^&%^&$!%@^#!%^&!%&*!(^!%!%$#!!!!! stator.
I went to this site and got all the info, but my boy wants it done under warranty, so we load it up, drop it off at the dealer.
Yep, the stator is shorted.
I haven't approached him on who is gonna pay for it. But, my son is pretty admit that it isn't gonna be us!
But, I can tell ya, I'm REALLY ticked at this $##%^^&&^%$#[email protected]
Thank God it's been crappy here in Pa. the last 2 weeks, little time for him to ride and........... I gave him my KLR to bum @ with.
Jeeese, just our luck!
If it worn't for bad luck, I'd have no life at all!
