No real story - about an hour or so into the ride I stalled and it woudnt start - no spark.

if 0 is breaking down by the car and 100 is breaking down at the foot of the devils staircase then this was about a 50. It took about 2-3 hours to drag the bike out of the trail we we on and get it back via the main tracks to the car.

Like Fran said in the Welly thread - I'm glad it was the Beta and not the WR - I was still pretty shattered though

The stator is a known weakness on my Beta so I called the importer (who lives in Paraparaumu) and popped in on the way home and picked up a new stator ($180) and he loaned me the tools to pull the flywheel etc.

I put the new stator in this morning and it now runs again.

Now I just need to fix the water leak on the KLR and the oil leak on the WR....
These are the best days
