  3. New Stator for XR400

    As mentioned in a previous post, my XR400 is not pushing out enough power and as a result, when the main headlight is on, the horn and rear brake light don't work. I've narrowed the problem down to the generator / stator, which is only pushing out around 4V. So, I need to replace it. I've...
  4. Trx conversion

  8. Power (electrical type) issues.

    Africa Twin
    So, my bike isn't behaving that well. I'm just not charging enough, I think. New Reg., battery is OK, but if I drive with the headlights on, the bike begins to bog down. Are the stators usually a problem? Or is this a symptom of something else? Thanks
