    Beating a dead horse, 05 charging system problems.

    I’ve been looking through the old threads, but was wondering, what are people using these days to make this bike more reliable?

    05, 25K miles, at least 3 dead R/Rs, stator reads zero voltage at the plug now, so it’s finally dead, starter and sprag clutch were swapped about 5K miles ago with the last R/R.

    Are the 09/10 stators lasting or am I better off getting a cheap Rick’s and planning on changing it in a year? Love the bike, but so sick of bump starting it to get home.

    Dont waste your money on the cheap stators. Get a stator, rotor and alternator cover from a late 08-10 speedy or an 05 or later Sprint, and a series style regulator/rectifier (either Shindengen or Compufire). I think the stator and rotor from the 1050 tigers will work also.

    You need to upgrade your RR to a series type like the Compu-fire one.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It will also help to change out the stator cover for an 08 or newer model (they cool better). You can try to find somewhere to rewind your stator, and have them replace the leads with heavier gage wire when they do. That'll help too.

    And for bog's sake, kick that douchbro sitting on your bike in the nuts, and take that gay-ass Burt Reynolds poster and use it for toilet paper.

    Nope. That's the famous 1972 Cosmopolitan magazine bearskin rug centerfold of Burt Reynolds.

    Biggest thing is to get a series RR which dramatically reduces the power dissipation in the stator which keeps it cooler.
