Well as the title implies, my 2008 900 custom left me stranded on the highway with a dead battery. I just put a new battery in it yesterday and rode it to work. When I got off work I noticed it had a sluggish crank when starting it and then began to notice my lights were very dim. I got about 10 miles from work and i noticed my speedometer had stopped working as well as the lights continually getting dimmer and dimmer. I rode it as far as I could hoping to make it all the way home. luckily when it did finally die, it did so 3/8 of a mile from my exit and I was able to push it the rest of the way off of the highway. My question for yall is what do you think is the issue. Being that it is a 2008 my first thought is that the stator has bit the dust, but I have absolutely no noise coming from the left cover like most people to, also Ive never heard of people accompany a speedometer issue with the stator failure like my bike exhibited last night. Any thoughts?
