Yes it is a bit surreal and we are still in adjusting mode! We are taking a 6 month break from talking about what is the next adventure! St Patrick's day over green we will open that box! Cheers S&D

Thanks again.

Well we have a shed and woods!! Will be living in the city for a while trying to sort out our 5 year plan! Cheers. Sara

It was stating to get a bit warm at 29 again and about 70 km from Petropavl Sara noted her voltage meter (always at 14.2-14.3) was at 13.4 and dropping steadily. Finally the stator has had it. Well we managed to get to the city, drive around for 45 minutes trying to find a non by the hours hotel, and not have the bike die. I did wait in one spot while 2 of the guys rode about and finally found a nice place with a good spot to work on the bike and I managed to get there without the fan turning on and killing the bike. We let the bike cool off and then hooked up the GS 911 to confirm the issue. Dan is an expert now #7 for stator changes and 2 in the last month. It all went smoothly luckily and on start up charge is 14.2!

I know it is 4 years later now, but if you lost 7 stators already, did you discover why they are going bad?

Stators

Hi

There are several reasons. We actually in the end had 5 on each of the bikes. We are not alone in this. I know several other RTW riders with the same vintage bikes. Stock stator dies usually 50-60,000 km. After market ones last a bit longer. So 5 stators is about right for 260,000 km.

1.high ambient temperatures
2. Header location
3. Pre early 2010 model year GS the holes in the back of the generator for cooling the stator are too small. They changed this design flaw. I think I posted a photo of this at one point in the RR.

Cheers Sara

Welcome to the BIG SKY of Montana! We followed the old west trail to Ennis. This might be the perfect town for Daniel they have auto parts and ice cream in one location. We spent the day swimming and sunning at the lake. We wondered into a dive bar and were surprised to find the most delicious best rib eye ever.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
