Copy and pasted from another forum as I CBA to type it all out again, and I'd really appreciate the help: I have an 07 VTEC VFR. I've done just about 36,000ks since I bought it in Nov '07 (new). For the most part, it's been fine. But toward the end of the warranty period, I had a dead battery (at 12am, right after work). Took it to Syd City (Lane Cove) who did a check of the charging system, discovered it all to be fine and charged me for a new battery thanks, as these things happen sometimes. A month(ish) later, the bike struggles, and stalls on my way home (on my birthday, whoop, 2.5ks from home, infact). It wont kick over and struggles to get the fuel pump primed. Pushed it home and had it taken back to Syd City the next day, the Stator had blown and the (almost new) battery was also fuxed. Stator was changed under warranty and battery was charged to me (apart from some piddling $4 rebate from Honda). All seems fine. That was back in Sep '09. But about 4 times since, I've had times when (usually when pulling up at lights) the revs D-R-O-P when I pull the clutch in (400/500RPM) and it goes to idle. I have to rev it for a minute or so to stop it stalling (I have tested it by not revving in response and the thing just dies. It does start back up again after. As this happens when I am usually in traffic, I just rev it to avoid any embarrasing 'Giz a push' situations). So it happened again today, and this had never been a problem before the Stator went. I've a feeling the stator being on its way out is what killed the first battery. But I've no idea what's causing these intermittent drop outs. I've heard of faulty oxygen sensors in the exhaust, but have no idea of symptoms or ways to diagnose. I have my 36 service up soon and I'll likely be going back to where I purchased, rather than Syd City. But if anyone had any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
