    I think transmissions hate me.

    I have a tendency to hit the higher speeds about everyone im out, that being said it's rare for me to use 5th much less 6th unless I'm on a really long trip.

    Dropped my bike now won’t run

    I was thinking the same way until I read where the Chinese rectifier is fairly new which says he's had a charging issue somewhat recently. And by testing the stator it'll show if there's a bad connection right away.

    Dropped my bike now won’t run

    Ive seen a couple bikes this year that thr owners replaced the rectifier on with Chinese and shortly after I was replacing the stator. As kiwi said make sure you have a good battery or jump pack hooked up and test the stator as im gonna say there's a good chance that's the issue.
