Stator and R/R Test Results are in!!!
Finally got a chance to run my tests that everyone here has so graciously provided me. I will start with the stator results
1) disconnected the yellow wires at the stator end. Had continuity among all combinations.
2) Tested ohms to ground for each of the yellow wire. All returned open/infinity/1 on my digital multimeter.
3) Ohm out all combinations of the 3 yellow wires. I labeled the wires A, B and C. All combinations received .9 (AB, AB, BC, BA, CA, CB)
4) Switched multimeter to 200 VAC. After making sure none of the wires were touching each other or the bike, I cranked it up and let it run for a minute. At idle I received 9.5 on all three stator wires with the positive lead from the multimeter going to the wire and the negative grounded at the battery. I tried to do the test of checking the voltage at each wire with the bike revved to 4-5k, but not sure I got the correct reading, as the number went down to about 5. Is this a necessary test to check the voltage at 4-5k RPM's?
That was all the testing scenarios I ran
Tried to find the posting where someone (I think it was Ole Hoss) told me what the readings should be, but was curious on some of the measurements because the Clymer manual had different readings. For example, the measurement from terminal M (+) to B (-) in the manual says I should have open/infinity/1 on a digital multimeter, but the results I was given by someone else said I should have >10k ohms. Either way, here are the results of my tests. I am using the same lettering as in the Clymer manual on page 295
B-M/G/A1-3 (measured using 200 Ohms) all came back open/infinity/1 on a digital multimeter
M to * (measured using 3 different ohms settings, 200, 2000 and 20k) all 3 tests returned open/infinity/1 on a digital multimeter.
G to * (measured using 2000 ohms)
I think that covers all the tests I was told to run. Being as obsessive compulsive as I am, I ran and reran each of the tests to be sure of the readings...
Please someone provide me with some feedback!!! I'll owe you lunch if I'm ever close to where you live!!!
