650r oil light on dash

Post by lonewolf on Tue 4 Nov 2014 - 21:12

Hi
does anyone know what this warning light actually does, is it a oil pressure warning light, or a low oil level light, the owners manual doesn't mention it at all.
cheers

Can you post a pic of it Keith ................  never seen one before ( mine hasn't got one that's for certain )  Wink

I checked the service manual and owners handbook too , just to double check and like you said , there isn't a mention of one  Question

well it definitely isn't a oil pressure warning light, according to the manual you have to do check this yourself with a pressure gauge, there is talk  that it could be a low oil warning light.
I havnt got my head round posting pics yes, I will keep trying.

stator and regulator

Post by lonewolf on Thu 6 Nov 2014 - 9:11

still struggling with the photos I will get there eventually.
anyother question for you
is there aftermarket stator and regulator for the 650r or compatable ones from other bikes, as I have read lots of bad things about the standard ones, so im preparing myself ready for the charging failure which will proberbly happen.

Yes Keith , there are alternatives that are cheaper AND more than likely more reliable  Laughing Laughing

For the stator ....... Kawasaki GPZ500 ( some call it EX500 ) - all years are the same  Wink

For the rectifier ...... Yamaha R1 year model 2002 on ( earlier models only have one outlet whereas the later one along with the Hyosung one have two )  Wink

There are others ( mine came from America ) but these are at the top end of the spectrum ( read effing expensive  Shocked Shocked ) 

I bought a MOSFET reg/rec from Roadstercycle.com , which cost ( along with shipping AND import duty ) around £140+ .............. pattern ones from Ebay can be had for around £40 and to be fair , there isn't much difference  Smile
