I didn't look far or for long, but if the rectifier pack has partially failed with some AC getting into the system then there's a good chance of this. And it was said that there's a lot of rectifier/regulator failures. Plus if the rotor magnets slipped or a stator coil partially shorted (also widely noted as problems) the charging current would 'pulse' more than planned for and might have something to do with this too. Electronics can act funny when they're not getting fed clean DC current.not familiar with his bike but there are some bikes that are notoriously difficult when it comes to interference issues
I tried 3 different DVR locations:Where is your main DVR exactly? near something extra hot or no ventilation? There are plenty of hot climate customers not reporting this issue so nothing to compare against. (Texas, south Florida, southern California, Nevada desert, Middle East, Australia you name it)
We’ve replaced everything for you, some parts three times now. It’s a bit of a mystery for sure.
Yes, there were issues with early (roughly 2002-2012 model) Vstrom DL1000 charging systems. I dealt with all that stuff years ago though.Been following along here for some time, and wondering WTF? myself.
So I just did a google on Vstroms and charging, and it appears from several forums that these have a problem with the rotor magnets moving out of place, and there's many reports of stator and regulator/rectifier issues too, which can lead to low charging rates and/or the presence of AC voltage where it should be DC only (rectifier). From what little I've read it also seems the guys who use battery maintainer charging while parked often never discover low voltage problems until they forget to plug in and the next time out their bike dies or won't restart after a stop.
So I don't know if @DesertBike is aware of these things or whether he's checked them but it may be where the root of the cam problems are at.
I only know of two other Vstrom DL1000 owners with Innovv K2s, but both have a newer model (2014-2016). But since I have the same regulator/rectifier and my charging system is healthy, the electrical setup is basically identical.the fact that it's not a problem for the majority of their customers and multiple items have been swapped out already it does sound like there's something about the bike itself that is an issue for the camera, hooking a temp power source independent of the bikes electrical system is maybe the only way to diagnose if it's a power input problem, not as easy to do on a bike though, if it's still an issue then it may be an EMI issue, bike ignition systems aren't filtered like a car setup is due to not normally having to deal with things like FM radio etc, if that's an issue though it's generally common enough for there to be some info about that online already
