Howdy from Malaysia

I commute all year along , recently purchased a Versys 650 2019 model on Oct 31 ,2019 now have clocked 2110km , this is my 8th bike , I do all servicing by myself including valve jobs , this is faster and efficient for me, I need to pick up tire changing skills though, soon

I love riding in the rain , it rain here in feet not inches, fastest I've been is 130km/h in the monsoon (10 feet visibility) , sadly the bike does not come with ABS , if not can push further


Nice to meet you all here

Regards
Kronen75

You found the right forum, lots of info on doing it yourself. Possibly you could look at your regulator, as I suspect that 2019 Kawasaki may have switched to Versys to a series regulator. I can guide you on this. Glad you PM'D me.

@Kronen75 First a photo of the regulator socket side, no need to unplug, I want to see if it is a single socket as on previous models or a double one. Ninja 1000 have a double socket, I think the V1000 has a double socket, I am hoping the 2019 v650 also has. That is the first step. FYI I am going to say 80% of stator failure is caused by the regulator, 15% by the old method of having both the delta connection and crossover connections on the same side and having a phase to crossover or phase to line short, the remaining 5% is caused by the stator 3 phase lug having a bad connection on one phase, this is exasperated by having a shunt regulator running at 100% output. If Kawasaki installed a series regulator, I would expect a drastic reduction in stator failure, in fact I would expect failures only to occur caused by a 3 phase plug single phase condition, or better yet, I would expect a 1 in 100,000 bikes to have this happen, as it is ( MK-1 & MK-2)I expect 1 in 1000 bikes to have stator failure with over 30,000 miles on the clock using OEM shunt regulator, same situation but MK-3 2015 and newer 1 in 2000 with over 30,000 miles.
To be clear, anything beyond 2014, the stator has the Delta connections on the back side, by themselves, so MK-3 2015 and newer will have less stator failures due to winding configuration, however failures caused by the regulator will continue .

Posted earlier/ vanished

My post from this morning vanished. Short story my regulator off the 2015 has similar numbers and is a shunt regulator, and I would guess so is yours.

So look at this thread ;
https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...on-thread.html

Look at the first post, part way down ;Note Added This in February 2017 To Test for Phase Loss on a Series regulator under Actual Load Conditions If you follow this,also added below that ; **********************
Added December 2019


I copied the shunt regulator posts to the member only forum, same link as above.
