The front turn sigs are also running lights, yes they stay on all the time, rears are just turn sigs.

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

Unless someone modified the rears to also be running lights. Make sure the back turn signals only have 2 wires. if so, then they should NOT always be on. If they have 3 wires hooked up, then someone may have modified them.

but yes, fronts are always on.

have you gone through my flow chart HERE? And fallowed it step by step? Your Stator Primary windings show a little higher resistance than what I like, but should still be working. I am assuming you have a stock Regulator/Rectifier? Whats your battery voltage with key off? Battery voltage key off/engine off?

as for the turn signals... do you have the 4 ways on... the button can be known to stick.. happened to me several times.. and freaked me out too... then I felt dumb after digging into every thing trying to find the problem.

Sorry I left off some info. I guess.
It has a new r/r and new battery that has whatever it has when I unplugg battery tender normaly. 13 to 14 from tender then drops after start and hold for about 15 to 30 minutes at 12.57

Thanks on the lights when I got mine. The rear stayed on the other day they went off when I was chassing wires. All lights work like there supose to now

Nnow just the charging problem still to mess with.

Thanks again for the help guys and good riding mabey I can join soon

You said you had 21 volts from the stator ,was that at idle or around 3000rpm? If you haven't yet run it up to the 3 grand mark and check the stator output voltage at the bullet connectors coming from the stator itself .You should have between 40 and 60 Volts AC on all combinations of leads A1- 2 ,A1-A3, A3 -2,if you don't, the rest is irrelevant.It all starts with stator output.That is where the process starts if it's not up to snuff you have a bad stator ,if it is, then start checking resistance values,according to the chart,even if you do have proper output the second thing to check is a continuity between the stator leads and ground,if shows continuity ,you have a grounded stator .This may not show up un til the engine is warm so these tests need to be performed with the engine warmed up to temp.

Sure glad I found this forum. New to the Vulcan 750 and you answered a question I came here searching for, and I didn't even have to look but a minute or two!
