Issue

On certain motorcycles, the stator coil insulation could become damaged and short circuit due to insufficient heat resistance. This could decrease electrical output which could allow the battery to discharge. This low battery voltage could result in a loss of speedometer function and could cause the engine to stall and unable to be restarted, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the stator coil with a new one with sufficient heat resistance.
