hi everybody, nice to meet you

klotzbum here, a proud owner of a 2009 Versys with about 45,000. I live in Honolulu HI, and ride the bike daily, year round. For the most part I like to do the basic maintenance. Right now I am looking for some assistance in determining why my battery is not charging. I do not think it the battery because I just got a new one 1 moth ago. Another symptom related to battery not charging, while sitting idle in daily honolulu traffic jam Instrument LED went blank and tach went to zero. the bike remained running but the display and tach would not display until I reved the engine to about 2000 RPM. anybody have any ideas?

Wink

I can help with the battery & stator issue, but you'll need to send me a plane ticket & give me a bed for a week or so while l diagnose the problem thoroughly!!!!
