i think i fried my stator
this morning, i had a little trouble starting my bike. rode to work ( 15 miles). bike died as i pulled into the parking lot. this afternoon, hard to start again, rode home, last 100 yards the bike started to spit a sputter, 50 yards bike died. coasted the rest of way. tried to restart, battery dead. jump started off truck. pulled jumper cables, bike instantly died. battery still dead. reattached jumper cables. let charge for 5 minutes. pulled cables. attached volt meter to battery, started bike. reved to 4K rpm. volt meter dropped from 11.5, to 11, 10.5, 10, bike died, in about 2 minutes.
am i safe in assuming the stator has charged its last battery. when i get the time to do a stator change, might as well do the ear shave, sense everything will be apart, and easy to get to.
