Hi all, had a speed triple 955i 2003 in 2017 and loved it, however due to wanting to tour I sold it and bought a sprint 1050, now the sprint was a nice bike but I never really bonded with it like I did my speed triple. So the sprint was sold and I’ve just purchased a 2004 speed triple 955i limited edition (black on black frame) I scrimped and saved and bought what I thought was the best I could get with my budget. There is a twist... bear with me lol. Anyhow, collected the bike last Friday at 5:30, at 5:45 I had broken down on the A1 waiting for recovery. Bike recovered and taken home.... lucky for me I bought from a garage and the cane and collected the bike next day to sort the problem, the bike starts fine, but as soon as you open up the throttle it dies, my initial thought fuel.
Garage calls me today to advise they believe the stator is the problem and have sent it away for repair by a company called West Country windings, they have advised that the stator, the Rev/rec and some other parts I’ve forgotten will be replaced at a cost of £400, all covered by the garage. Apparently to rebuild the stator is a weeks turnaround so roll on next week.
So glad I didn’t buy private
