Yes, probably.
There appears to be a definite lifespan.

My original burned out at circa 20k.
Electrex replacement burned out at around 43-44k
Electrex replacement burned out at 58k - trying to get this one replaced under warranty as it shouldn't have failed until Jan 18.

I've now fitted a voltmeter so I can see when it starts to degrade and order the next one in ready.

Cheers Ant  :002:  It works ok but just a cheap one from LightIntheBox in China - not all that accurate though - out of 5 that I bought (for bikes and cars) only 2 were spot-on, the others were up to +/- 0.3V.  I can probably 'tweak' them by changing a resistor but not had time yet...  They'll give you a general indication of the battery state though which is all you need.

My turn - Canadian bike 30,000 km ...pretty sure original ....dealer says 10 year coverage

Quit at a VERY convenient spot  - my normal coffee shop - northern office....staff brought a charger up and dealer is not far and crowded with mcycle riders some very well versed.

Bought my 09 Biffer 14 months ago with 20k on the clock - replaced stator a couple of months ago at 24k but it was the original stator that was in there - still OK but the coil windings were getting a bit of a brown tinge to them so not sure how much longer it would have lasted... New one came from Wemoto think it's Electrex..

Got my MK1 at 27K not been far due to ill health and the bike in bits "adding lights etc" so waiting for a failure, any tips to prevent or replace the thing when it does go appreciated!! :159:
A newbie to the Biffer, owned a Bird for 17 years, and looking forward to long term ownership of my CBF!!
