More Stator Troubleshooting
OK, I got my stator back from TPE where I thought he did a super job of rewinding it. Got it in the bike but am still not getting a charge from the system. I think it's the regulator, I got one from Tim that he recommended but I don't know how to ohm it out yet so I can't really test it. I wanted to post the results of my stator test to see if they all looked normal. I think they look fine but would like confirmation.
Ohm Test - Cold & Hot Engine on X1 scale
Leg 1 & 2 = ~ 0
Leg 1 & 3 = ~ 0
Leg 2 & 3 = ~ 0
I know I should be looking for .34 to .52 ohms but that's a little small for my meter to read and awfully close to 0.
Voltage Test - Cold Engine @ 3000 RPM
Leg 1 & 2 = ~ 55.4 VAC
Leg 1 & 3 = ~ 54.6 VAC
Leg 2 & 3 = ~ 55.9 VAC
Voltage Test - Hot Engine @ 3000 RPM
Leg 1 & 2 = ~ 60.2 VAC
Leg 1 & 3 = ~ 60.4 VAC
Leg 2 & 3 = ~ 60.3 VAC
I think the voltage tells the better story. To me the stator acts fine, it seems like 60 VAC is a little high for 3000 RPM but it is consistant. I think I should be looking at the regulator as the source of my problem.
