Now, Positive multimeter lead to negative mosfet pin, negative lead to each stator lead 1 at a time should get 435 ish all close to the same (again varies by ambient temp).
Negative multimeter to negative mosfet pin, positive multimeter to each stator pin 1 at a time, should get zeros.
If you get a zero where you should not or a number where you should not, then you possibly have a bad mosfet, odds are not good of that." End quote
JM, can you link me to the diagnostics please, so I can update the TS Guide?

My MOSFET and TPE stator has never charged at idle. Cold it will start charging at 1300 rpm but warm its mostly around 2200 rpm, then will charge to as low as 1300 rpm. But now this is on my bike. I'm sur it varies a little per bike.

Something is wrong with your upgrade then Chuck... you should be seeing right around 14.5 volts through all RPM ranges with your set up... pm me

I Updated the Charging system TS Guide to reflect the Shindegen R/R information.

This is exactly what is going on with mine. Last night, I re-wired straight to the battery using the HUGE wire included with the Roadstercycles kit, and I used primary wire from the stator leads to the R/R. All connections are soldered. Worst-case when hot with my fan and the hi-beam on is around 12.4V. Basically, running a bit better than stock, but not what I had expected. I do expect it will vary from bike to bike a little bit, as each stator will be a little different as well as peoples wiring skills.

I will check out the R/R with my Multimeter in a couple of days and report back. I can't work on it for a few days, but still able to ride.

i still think its a bad stator... when it gets hot it is shorting one leg out to ground.. I just talked two people through this over the phone over the past 3 months.

You might be right, but unloaded, I am getting around 25V at idle and 75+ @ 4-5K and no shorts. Even if it is the stator, I'm just foing to keep riding it. I'll have my other core rewound in the meantime, and do the R/R testing tomorrow night.

I'll also pick up a cheap ammeter clamp at Harbor Freight to check the legs.

unloaded they were getting the same stator reading unloaded.. and if you unplug the tail light and headlight with the R/R plugged in you should be pulling 13.9-14.5 volts through all rpm, ranges, then drop down to 12 with the tail light plugged back in. I racked my brain for 3 months before one fo the guys finally went back and checked stator leg to ground resistance when hot. we came up with .05 ohms with engine at normal operating temps, with engine cold, the same leg to ground was getting a reading of OL. BTW all three stators had less than 2,000 miles, One was a 1 Was a rick's, one was an Electrosport, and the third was a TPE... TPE was the only one that made right as far as I know.
