VN700 Charging problem. and tachometer
Thank god i found this place. seems im not the only one with a charging problem and tachometer problem.
have tested the ohms reading from the Stator and getting OL on the meter so no shorts.
when testing the AC Voltage at the harness for the R/R im getting 19VAC on each one. or there abouts. so all equal measurements, but no were near the 40-50VAC i should be getting.
i have replaced the R/R already as it had corrison on the nuts and one have broken into 3. so replaced and refitted.
have cleaned all earthing points on bike. the one to the engine to the starter relay and the one from the battery to the earth on the frame just behind battery bay.
have changed the battery for a new one, fully charged
have a problem with the tachometer to. when i first start the bike, it works fine. as soon as i move the throttle the tacho works in reverse.
have found one wire that was burnt out this was the ylw/blk wire for the fuel sensor. cut it out and replaced it.
waiting on new stator turning up,this is the next change as i can see it being the only problem now. after looking at most of the other threads.
will do a check on the fuse and diode readings for the J/B as could also be the problem, but would think not enough voltage from the stator would be the problem. but dont show as faulty on a ohms test.
any ideas at all. based in the uk have a grey import vn700.
