    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...

    I will check the primary oil tonight. I'll have to Google what the best oil to use in a Buell primary is... as I'm sure that's been beaten to death. I'm currently running Belray Sport Trans fluid. ...

    LOL, sorry. I've Googled a fair bit, but I'm still not clear on how to test the VR. I should mention that I'm running a Compufire 55150 after my stock VR started over-voltaging and blowing...

    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.

    I am not asking you for your personal opinion of the nature of my question, so if you don't mind, stick with the topic and stop diluting the subject. Your response was absolutely useless!

    I have tested the VR output. It's low... hence why the ECM is throwing a CEL and a code for low battery voltage. However, I just read something on CycleElectric's website: "A stator that is shorted...

    I searched, but I didn't find the info I was looking for. I did however, find exactly what I was looking for in the '08 XB Electrical Diagnostics Manual on the BuellMods website.

    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 -...

    I think you need the Digital Technician software to update the actual firmware binary on the ECM, eg. BUEZD to BUE2D. I'm sure someone may have figured out how to do this, but the dealership can...

    It's ridiculous how cheap these machines can be purchased used for... my '09 1125CR is easily the most dialed motorcycle I have ever owned, absolutely no regrets with it whatsoever.

    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...

    The Euro maps have slightly more timing than the US maps due to improved fuel octane. That's about the only takeaway I have, but I believe the stock header pipe diameter is smaller on the Euro...
