obviously some kind of battery monitor is going to be needed if you do much riding.

and people wonder why I keep a KLR as a backup bike.
Voltage monitoring would be a nice option on the display. My 3 grand Italian motor scooter has a voltage display lol.

The system does know the voltage, even stores under and over voltage codes. Wonder why BMW hasn't made display of voltage accessible.

I suspect a load of aftermarket stators will hit the market soon, as well as some day supposedly BMW is going to sell this part apart from the rotor. I would happily cary a spare, once they are down around $100
