Vulcar,
just out of curiosity, have you had to replace your stator yet?

Hello Patrick, I have had to replace mine once around 20K. I think perhaps I was the one that caused the failer. I tried hooking up an alarm system and use the running lights as flashers. I hooked up the system incorrectly and caused the stator to fail I am sure. Thankfully they replaced it under warranty. Gave me the benifit of doubt p;lus I was in good with my dealer. When it failed I lost power and the bike would not run at all after the battery died.

Vulcar, I had heard of stator problems with the 900, so I ran the checks on my battery, rectifier and stator and so afr so good. I have 7500 miles in my 07. No problems so far. I have enjoyed the bike!
Thanks for the info!

There is a Stator thread in this forum. Just keep up the maintenance and hopefully you will enjoy many miles. I love my 900!

Belt Replacement/Those who have done this please post

Hey Folks, I am writing to let you know that I am having to replace the belt drive on my 900. It should be here on this Tuesday. Anyone who has done this job please hit me back with feedback. I've watched Youtube, looks like I should be able to do it but I'm nervous about doing this myself. Let me know please

Hi Irish,

Do take a good look at your Drive and Driven Pulleys and see if you want to replace them. Worn or chewed up pulleys will shorten the life of a new belt dramatically. What did you pay for a new belt? I bought a new belt a couple of years ago and it cost me almost $400.00 then, have they come down any?

I searched the threads and found someone online. It should arrive tomorrow. I will check all those parts you spoke of in detail. I'm thinking of riding this season and either sell it or trade her in for a new machine. Yea the price is wicked high Royvn900 but was able to find one much cheaper on the internet. I hope it works as I miss riding especially since the weather in the bluegrass is getting nice.
