I have a 2016 900 Custom, I just hit 1000 miles the other day, but so far everything has been perfect.

Stands at the sea, wonders at wondering; I... a universe of atoms, an atom in the universe.

Mine don't count, but just bought a 2006 with 11k, and it already needed a stator, and a rear tire, the front tire is dry rotted but has acceptable tread for the remainder of this season. Everything else is original since new, and no other turns of screws other than the stator cover.

-2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 900, 12k miles, Planning a Blue Collar Bobber Build.

Question, any added on electrical? wondering why stators fail on these bikes. Did you do the replacement your self?
