This.

If I remember correctly, one of the members that attended a Gathering had his stator crap out on him. He had a charger and picked up another battery (cheap wet cell) charged both and left for home.

The first battery went out after several hours and he switched to the second....enough to get him to a motel for the night where he charged both batteries and repeated the same the next day. He disconnected the headlight, tail light and running lights.
Pick likely remembers this better. He might have actually used a car battery, not sure.....but made it the several hundred miles home.

I have been staying out of this as most of the responders know more about these things than I do. I do have a second bike that will be a project over the winter. If we know where you are, one of us will send you parts to get you home. I am in the Atlanta metro area. We will be waiting to hear back from you.

Wolfie You still with the model ?....if so, stay there a bit (hay, Id move in)....Im sure someone has a spare R/R they can send ya....if Slim says its yer R/R....means its yer R/R....

And dood...ya always carry some basic tools....phillips, flat, 10mm, vise grips, channellocks.....that way ya can sneak into a scrapyard at night and yoink one if ya needed to....and bein a righteous human being, naturally you'd mail them payment later.....
