    Just heading through the CBD and he just stopped while moving:( had to push it up hill to a driveway to then get it off the road.
    Now waiting for our local break down service to tie it home.:(:(:(:(:(
    I hope it’s not the stator.

    That's a balls

    Assume you've checked fuses. Any other info e.g. did the lights stay on or go out when it died

    No warnings at all? That's quite odd, on my Daytona as the RR died years ago, all the electrical slowly went out, eventually the speedo stopped working, and a few minutes later she died.

    At least it's easy to diagnose if it's the RR, Battery, or Stator.

    Good luck, hoping it's a dead RR or loose connection!!
