Yes I thought that was the case, cause the first time we were running around 50-65 on a regular basis. But after she road around town for a couple days it never came back. Even after the run to Urbana, but I put the battery on the charger and filled the battery up with distilled water in the cells needed. We have not tried it since.

I will research the higher output stator and weight the cost. Who am I kiddin'...if I want her to ride her bike before May '13...I will need to upgrade the stator.
