 While riding our 2001 ultra classic (harley-davidson motorcycle) on the interstate in the high speed lane, the radio and headsets quit working. i noticed the vote gage stopped working. i put on my turn signal to move to the right; they did not work. a few minutes later, the bike shut down and could not be restarted. the only reason that i did not shut down in the high speed lane was my battery was less than a year old and was able to move off the road before it died. the bike was towed to the dealer and i was advised that the stator was bad. i researched the problem on the internet and learned that harley-davidson is well aware of the problem (service bulletin m-111 tc88 touring stator) and should be recalled, a bike stopping in 70 mph traffic is not good. i am not the only person that had this problem. i contacted harley-davidson and i was advised that my bike was out of warranty and they would not cover it. this motorcycle only had 13,500 miles on it when the stator failed. the upgraded stator and other parts were replaced by a harley-davidson dealer and the old stator is availably. *nm
