Finally got around to checking the F8 charging problem and the stator is toast, confirmed by my mechanic who's BMW factory trained. Oh well, that is the first thing we've ever had go wrong on the F650/800 bikes aside from expendables like steering head bearings, etc.

Sure glad I still have a Suzuki DR to ride.
