Had the gen stop charging on the Falcon couple weeks ago. Learned that I had better stock up on normal wear items (brushes). Part of the cost of daily driving that which hasn't been built in 50 years. Belts is normal wear items Cosmo P.S. My usual backup plan is a Triumph 955i Tiger (M/C). It is February, and I live near Chicago - guess how well THAT B/U plan worked??
