Would an oil change burn a stator coil?
Basically, I've changed the oil, after 7-9k miles. The old stuff came out as per usual, no blobs or anything like that. 1.8L out, 1.8L in, fully synthetic. The oil level when it is cold is right at the middle between low and high
Next day I did maybe around 20 miles around the city. The only thing I noticed was the top small useless front light flickered a bit once in early morning at the startup. It reacted to throttle but after like 20 seconds of reving the problem disappeared.
A day after I get on motorway doing 70mph suddenly electrics all went blank. No power, sometimes dashboard will flicker when I turn the ignition but mostly it just doesnt react.
Battery is okay, cleaned the battery contacts, replaced with some old one I had in a cupboard.
Main frame grounding I think its okay as well. It's a piece of interesting, fanned-out like wire under the seat that is just bolted to the middle section, right? I think AA lubricated as well from last break down.
So yeah, in my eyes the only suspect is left is a stator coils. Which I have replaced last summer or the same 7-8k miles ago.
The reason I am mentioning the oil change is that its quite a coincidence. That's all. Maybe something clogged up if oil cools stator coils
