Need Wiring Help & Rectifer Readings
Okay today I finished installing a new stator. Checked it with multimeter prior to install. I also installed a new gel mat battery. The idiot that owned the bike before me had replaced the stator & did some custom wiring. He used lots of butt connectors & quick connectors if that tells you anything.
He also replaced the R/R plug & had the positive & negative leads reversed. I guess that explains what happened to the new stator he installed.
Anyway, after looking at the wiring diagram & making some corrections to his mess, I fired up the bike. I am only getting about 13.2 volts max at any RPM above idle. At idle I get 12.8-9 volts, and it quickly jumps to 13.2 & stays there.
Anyone else ever have this issue?
I noticed on the wiring diagram that one of the stator leads goes to the R/R & also has a leg going to the JB. I've worked on a lot of Hondas & Yamahas & they don't have this. I think this is for the headlight relay. This just seems strange to me. I was thinking about removing the lead to the JB & rechecking the voltage, but wanted to ask 1st.
Anyway, I did not replace the R/R that was on the bike. It checked out good with my multimeter. All I could check was the diodes since my meter is digital.
So what type of voltage are you getting with a standard, non mosfet R/R?
Any suggestions? Replace R/R, remove extra leg from Stator to JB, etc? Thanks for your replies. Dean
