Headed down to Spokane from Edmonton, trip got cut short 10mins out of Merritt Wednesday night. Was just getting dark, headlights shut off, bike dies. Throw a voltmeter on it, stator was fried.
Call every dealer within 3 hours, nobody has one, closest stator is 5 days out.
Didn’t want to hang out in Merrit for a week, uhaul was over $1000 to get the bike home.. Canadian tire had generators on sale soooo... Hardwired a 15amp charger to the bike, plugged it into the generator. Whole setup cost me $450.
So ya... I’m the guy that was smart/stupid enough to ride from Merritt to Edmonton with a generator powering his bike.. crazy that it actually worked.
Oh, and if anyone is looking to buy a generator, I know a guy...
