    your 2009 dave has alot of improvements above and beyond when the XB series was introduced in 2003 model year. one of them is the stator/regulator connections. have never seen a problem with them. one thing i continue to do with every buell i own regardless of model year is install a simple $5 volt gauge to continually monitor charging system activity. the $5 and enjoyable short evening of labor to install worth the price of admission.

    ^100% this: "Never leave home without a small tiny plastic packet of spare blade fuses and at least 1 relay."

    Just find a place to tuck them away. You may never need them, but if you do and you didn't prep a 10c fix for a problem that can cost you many hours on the side of the road then your time must not be too valuable

    precisely mope and well said. i own 5 XB's(ya....i know...i have mental problems) and every single one of them i take a small plastic sandwich type bag, place 1 each of 5/10/15/20 amp blade fuse and 1 relay inside each bag and tape to front portion of battery that faces up towards seat. plenty of clearance in that area and a road-side lifesaver. factory tool kit also works well for doing this.
