I'm a genius! Or slightly retarded...

I have a theory about my higher temperature readings from my bike lately (2004 cbr1000rr). At first I thought it might be from a sticky thermostat (it still could be) but recently I noticed something that I hadnít seen before. When you turn on your high beam how many degrees does your temp increase instantly? On my bike it goes up about 5(F) or so. It seems to me when you put a bigger current draw on the bike the signal from the temp sensor is affected. I have seen posts complaining about stators going bad and I think this might be what is causing my higher readings. The fact that the stator is putting out a lower voltage is making the reading of my temp higher. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o:p></o:p>
Does this seem plausible?<o:p></o:p>
Does your temp go up when the high beam is turned on?<o:p></o:p>
How do I check the stator for proper operation?<o:p></o:p>
Any other suggestions?
Thank you for any response <o:p></o:p>

No tech knowledge on the 1000rr, but you could always try to unplug your headlight altogether and notice if there's an immediate change in temp ???

Electrical vs coolant system. As far I see there is no correlation. Maybe there's a firmware issue in the software code for the ECU?

Temp sensors generally generate current rather than consume it. However you might have a short in the system.

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: I'm a genius! Or slightly retarded...

Can anyone tell me where the cheapest place to buy a stator is? I see a lot of people have had to replace theirs on the cbr1000rr. Can anyone tell me how to check to make sure. I have experienced all of the symptoms that I have read from other 1000rr owners. I even bought a new battery. Can anyone help me?

Re: I'm a genius! Or slightly retarded...

You know how annoying that is when someone is riding behind you with their highbeam on and you just cant block it out of your mirrors

Re: I'm a genius! Or slightly retarded...

I ride with them on high especially at night...daytime not really... only when I feel the need too... if they get a little glare then they know im there ! Hey that rhymed.

But I notice no change in temp...Then again I have a 954 not the 1k

Re: I'm a genius! Or slightly retarded...

I dont know how you ride w/o mirrors that would just be weird. Not to mention the goofy look of the upper with just 4 bolts holding nothing on
