The Bullets Almost Got Me

Replaced the stator a little over a year ago. Always planned to remove those bullet connectors and solder the wires together, but procrastination set in.
A few days ago planned on riding the bike to work again. Did not start in fact after 2 trys at it the battery was done, just the relay clicking. Put the battery on a charger and the next day it started right up. checked the voltage at the battery as it was just 12-13 VDC. My first thought was "not another stator"
Checked the bullet connectors and one of the leads were disconnected, reconnected and the voltage was better. So I removed them and soldered the wires together. 14VDC at idle (mosfet R/R).
The way I figure it if the bike would of started I might of made it half way to work.

Glad to see you didn't have to do another stator replacement.
I haven't soldered mine yet, but I did clean the contacts, took a pair of pliers, and squeezed the connectors together a bit tighter.
At idle my lights flicker, and at 2K they brighten up and burn steady.
I haven't checked the voltages yet, but will do that tomorrow.
