    Well it appears my stator bit the dust. Things were going great until I was met with a dead battery after a long ride and test continuity to ground on each of the yellow wires coming from the stator...

    Even if it's just a waste of $60 at least I spent some time in the garage! Hopefully the posts will be useful as parts for the buells get harder to find

    Turns out there's a Harley cross reference to the SH775 regulator as well (part# 4012941) which is a SH775BB regulator for a 2014-2017 Harley XG500. I've got one in the mail and will report back on...

    Update on the regulator: the unit I received is not the SH775 type regulator, so do not use one from an 05 Outlander. It appears in newer years ~2013 they started using the sh775 type, but the older...

    Did the tach and speedometer cut out when this happened? I ask because I had a similar issue and it was my kickstand switch. Bike just quit out of nowhere.

    Well I decided to be the guinea pig! I bought a used voltage regulator to try to test as a good upgrade to the Buell. Heard of too many Harley's and Buells eating stators so I figured why not take a...

    All grounds are cleaned, and extras between the frame, engine and ecu are all tied into the battery. It just seems odd that the battery was fairly dead (bike cranked slow) and when I tested voltage...

    From what I've read the newer style mosfet (still shunt) are a lot easier on the windings due to a better efficiency in the switching electronics. I'll have to investigate other ones as well.

    Those are stator readings btw. So it looks like that's checking out good. Could it then be the voltage regulator? And if it is should I leave it unplugged so it doesn't fry the stator?

    Definitely good to know! I'll be staying off it until then. It has maybe a mm or two of wiggle room in it, and sounds dry and crumbly. I have all balls waiting to go in this weekend.

    Mine is supplying 12v at the moment. I'm tempted to install a regulator to drop it down to 5v, at $54 a pop I don't want to be replacing them a lot
