    What do you think I should look at first? The simplest of the adjustments is the clutch cable itself - that wouldn't be my first suspicion. The clutch adjuster on the primary then? Or the chain...

    I've got about 40,000 miles on my '08 XB12Ss and she runs pretty hard. Doesn't leak a drop. Always treated her well.

    Clutch misadjustment

    I just replaced the stator in my '08 XB12Ss and had to remove the primary chain, clutch, etc. as part of the job. I think I followed the service manual to the tee, but my clutch lever doesn't seem...

    Machine is back on the road again, using Amsoil 20W50 synthetic motor oil in the primary. Seems happy and definitely charging.

    As a final check and because I didn't trust my DMMs, I grabbed a GWInstek GDM-461 DMM from the office. With that meter I'm seeing 0.3 ohms between the stator pins. I'm seeing 2.5 ohms between each...

    Old thread, but still relevant. I just wanted to point out that several folks have run the Compufire 55150 VR in place of the OEM Buell part. Far more reliable than the OEM part.

    Testing VR and stator health

    Is there a definitive procedure to test the voltage regulator and the stator, separately? I made a 250 mile roundtrip journey on my '08 XB12Ss last weekend and the CEL came on the return trip. ...

    FYI, avoid soldering if you can... the bike is a high vibration environment and soldered joints tend to fatigue and crack. This is why a mechanical crimp is the preferred method of connection -...

    Perhaps your fuel maps have been altered and/or the exhaust/airflow upgrades require remapping to the point that the ECM is making note of it.

    Nice upgrade. I have a tail eliminator on my CR, so I would probably opt to install the stator up front between the radiators, near the oil cooler, though. I don't think it would have any issues...
