    CAA is normally okay, this is the first time I've had somebody **** something up. I even told them not to tie it down that way but "blah blah blah x years of experience blah blah"

    ........gah.

    I don't think it's the stator because the dash still turns on. I need to check the voltage and go from there like others have said...bike is not with me though. The grounding issue is also quite possible as I've had electronic related issues on this bike before.

    Does this bike have a bank angle sensor? If so add it to your list of things to check.

    While I'm often wrong........ I'd be inclined to think you have a dirty connections and/or a bad battery. First thing I'd do is check the dirt cheap things like battery voltage, thoroughly clean terminals, charge battery if required and then retry.

    Thanks for that.

    Debating if I should call or not as this will be a pain in the *** to argue and the membership is my father's, not mine.

    Regardless, I won't be getting to the bike until this weekend. **** this adult life lol

    I recently signed up with CAA plus.
    Iirc you need plus to tow a motorcycle and also iirc with plus you can tow anyones vehicle. Double check that and if so, I would make that call.
    Also, adulting kinda sucks.

    There is also a "brown connector" in between the r/r and stator which likes to melt...
    to us there was nothing but girls and machines.....

    CAA membership goes with the member, not any particular vehicle. So, you dad could have called for the tow on your bike. Doesn't matter, they accepted and did the tow and did the damage. Make a claim ASAP to avoid/mitigate any question of when it happened.

    Yeah, the reason why I think stator and not battery is that the bike died mid-ride while it should have been charging the entire time.

    Dead batteries tend to make themselves known before the ride even starts...

    Really good point.

    And regarding the CAA comments, thank you. Will contact them.

    that's it, he exceeded it while ramping.

    Does it have a fuse?
    ... or
    has it recently had mice living in it.

    Haha, you're a riot...............

    Many bikes have bank angle sensors and the ST1100's were defective in early years leading to a recall. Sensor would die and so would bike, often while on the road. So, like a sidestand or neutral lockout switch this is just one more electrical thing to check and many people don't realize their bike even has one.
