Hello from SLC, UT.

I just signed up for the Versys forum today. I have a blue 2009 Versys that I bought for my 50th birthday in November 2017. (This is the fifth motorcycle I've owned.) It came with some nice accessories and upgrades and was a great price at $3k USD. It also came with 34k miles on it and not a lot of information on what service has been done. So, I've purchased the service manual, some tools for Christmas, and a new battery. I thought the new battery would solve the electrical issue but since the weather has gotten warmer, I've ridden it more and found out that I may have a stator / rectifier issue. So, now I have a weekend project to see if I can test and fix it myself. I may be hitting the forum up for answers to my questions since I really don't have a lot of experience as a mechanic.

Thanks in advance everybody,
CJ

Welcome CJ,

I believe you will find conversation about the stator issue you speak of around here.

I have as many miles on my 2008, they are great bikes that don't ask for a whole lot.
