    The whole alternator/generator assembly was replaced on the G310?

    Yes, and the regulator. Entire charging system.

    The BMW parts fiche for the G310GS, diagram #12_2102, calls this doohickey a "Generator".

    They sure do. See my post 12. Despite what I have read in this Forum I continue to believe that an "alternator" is one type of the larger class of objects known as generators.

    They are both "generators" in the broad sense of the word. Much like motorcycles and trucks are both "vehicles".

    On the fiche I pulled the image of the diagram off of there was no part number or price given for a generator. There were part numbers and prices shown for the ancillary parts.

    The stator, which is the bit that fails (plus maybe the regulator), is around $1,500. Add to that at least 10-12 hours of shop time (the engine needs to be removed and the cases split to get to it). Figure you're looking at $2,500 to $3,500 for that job at a dealer.

    Which website did you pull that graphic from? Item 5 doesn't appear on the BMW parts or A&S websites.

    Supposedly, there's a starter clutch mechanism that's failing on the G310's
