Just a heads up, I know these bikes are super dependable - but..

By buddy's '09 stator failed on him after about 8 mos. He has had every year from the inception of Yamaha 4 strokes, and never had an issue ( he trades his in every year). But the bike would not start at the track, and we checked for spark ( none ), and it was tested at the dealer to confirm.

But if anyone has 09 starting issues, check the spark first and foremost.

Yes, pulling the tank to do this sucks.. but what are you going to do?

If anyone else has had a problem, or is having a problem with this issue, please chime in. Good to get all the info info in one location.
