Intermittent stator problems are common. In particular, a short to ground often happens as a function of temperature.



When the charging system is not working, immediately perform the stator resistance checks described here.



Is this the original stator that was in the bike or is it a replacement stator?

Dave,

It's the original stator. He hasn't been able to do anything with the new one yet. Has to wait till the truck is at least fixed before he can thing about work on the bike. At least that's what his wife says.
