    Well...a bit of an update for you all.

    I finally had time to disassemble everything after receiving all of the parts.

    I can't say I've ever been happy to see a failed component, but at least now I know what the cause of my issue was - a very toasty looking stator coil!

    I've replaced the stator and will replace the reg/rec tomorrow, since I had already ordered a new one I may as well replace everything at once.

    Once everything is back together I'll measure the voltages and fingers crossed will see normal/good results.

    That's a well buggered one. Surprised that there's not more damage

    A failed reg/rec can kill the stator, so do replace it before using the bike again.

    Good to know a reason. What did you go with in terms of parts?

    Ordered genuine Suzuki parts for the regulator/rectifier, stator and matching gasket.

    It's a common enough issue that there are a multitude of knock-off parts out there, but there's no substitute for genuine quality.

    As demonstrated in post 16?
    My own Suzuki still has the original stator and r/r (37 years, but I am very careful about keeping the oil level up as the stator is partially oil cooled, I have relocated the r/r from under the battery box to under the steering head and the alternator connectors have all been replaced, and the batteries have been replaced as soon as needed.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    It's only a common issue for the 2006/2007 models of the bike, later years (and seemingly earlier too) don't suffer from the reg/rec and/or stator issues like the 2006 or 2007 ones do.

    After reading issues like this recently, I went and bought a new battery for my road bike as it was well puffed. I started to get nervous the impact this would have on the charging system for the times I did start it.....usually by bump!

    Having started numerous GSs by bump as their charging systems failed, including a borrowed thou touring north island, and of course all my race bikes, .

    a borrowed RF900 took me a bit by surprise as it almost ran away from me when it caught. Higher first gear or idle or something. Opened my eyes.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
