929RR - went dead while riding

hi guys,

the strangest thing happened to me last night, after a nice 90miles ride I was going back home and 3 miles away I lost all info from the LCD screen, bike still was responding to throttle but after 300yards or so it completed died on me so I went to neutral and gilded to the side of the road.

turned the switch on and off and LCD screen displayed info but enough power to start the bike again, any ideas ?
this morning the same; LCD display info but not enough power to start the bike, alternator/stator coil or battery ?

and yeah I pushed the darng thing for about 2 miles.

Thanks

Re: 929RR - went dead while riding

stator died, then your bike used battery power and once the battery died the bike quit. same exact thing happened to me. just replace both the battery and stator and your back on the road.

Re: 929RR - went dead while riding

I was afraid of that though; do u know of any online store that I can purchase the stator for a reasonable price ? I found a battery for less than $100 (free maintenance).

by the way thanks for the info, love my bike but meng it sucks to push her for 2 miles.

Re: 929RR - went dead while riding

I think denniskirk.com has the cheapest stator for that bike, but I got mine from ronayers.com just because I want a oem part for the reliabilty.

Re: 929RR - went dead while riding

Sounds like the stator to me!!! You can get a battery at WalMart for like $65-75 and a decently priced stator that you can buy online is at
cheapcycleparts.com

Re: 929RR - went dead while riding

I got an everstart battery at walmart for $45, has a 3 or 5 year warranty and it has lasted for 3 years with no sign slowing down so far. I dont even use a maintainer on it i just bring it inside in the winter time and set it up on a shelf.

First, charge the battery.
Check the connectors for the stator and regulator.
If they're okay then start the bike and meaure the voltage across the battery to confirm the stator or regulator are dead.
I wouldn't replace the battery unless there's something wrong with it.

Big mistake.
OEM Honda stators are garbage.
Aftermarket ones have been produced because the OEM ones are garbage.

Sure, but the previous one already died remember ;-)
If they were any good you'd still be running the original one.

I'm not that sure, at least I have the impression SOME aftermarket stators are just as crappy or worse. After my OEM stator fried I got one from Electrex. That one lasted about 4-5 days, which was replaced by a brand new OEM and that's the one still running today.

I'd say it's definately true there are crap aftermarket ones as well.
If Honda made theirs better then we'd never need to find out how good or bad the aftermarket ones are though :-)
At least if you buy another Honda one you know it's going to die again sometime.
