    The battery went totally flat on my 2019 S1000R. As it was 4 years old, not a surprise. After being jump started approx 4 times because motor kept dying when I put it in gear (sidestand was *not* down), I found a battery dealer who brought me a new battery and I got home OK. However next ride, after about 2 hours, new battery died too. Voltage across battery terminals while running is only 12.4. Local motorcycle repairer tells me both stator and regulator need replacing. The new battery supplied was 160CCA 10.5ah while the original was 120A 8ah. Is it more likely that the new battery caused the failure or the jump starting?

    Actually, I think either the stator or regulator just failed (stator is obviously burnt out), and both flat batteries were caused by that. I bought replacement stator and regulator online. Stator AUD $389.90 scootering.com.au, Regulator AUD $289.95 rpmmoto.com.au. Saved big dollars on genuine BMW parts ($1645 stator, $457 regulator). Mechanic said replacing regulator was a pain. Battery being charged at 14.5 volts now.  :082:
