    Default alternator

    anyone else have issues with the alternator rotor destroying itself? I believe Yamaha have redesigned the rotor but want to charge megabucks for replacement

    Are you referring to the Flywheel on the left side of the crank case or the stator itself? Gen I or Gen II?

    Mine is fine - I think...

    Had I'm mine in my '06 go at 40,000km. Yamaha wanted a fortune. Managed to get a new one for $450. Pay to change both rotor bearings while your there as well, for 2 $5.00 bearings it's worth doing.

    No sure if I will keep my bike { been bulletproof } if I do just wondering who has the most miles/klms on their bike [pre 2010] without the rotor destroying itself? I have 73,350 klms [ 2008 model ] without a problem
