I have no idea where these are, which side of the bike they are on, nor what they look like.
The bullet connectors are more in middle of the transmission, right on top or hanging above it. They are plastic covered plugs similar to the ones under the seat for the tail light wiring. The wires on them will be yellow.

My resistance readings were (on 200ohm setting) 140,140,90

Im not good with a multimeter but had my electrician friend over, he said it's enough resistance to assume the stator is bad.

I feel for you man, just helped a friend last week change one. No rocket science to the job but it takes a fair amount of time. Research "tuxedo mod" and check out GloryRider's stator project.

Already ordered the plate kit and Parrott's stator

On the bright side, I found this out by riding the bike!!! Took it up and down the road, and it was incredible. Unbelievable sound from the exhaust... Very loud. Lots of pop on deceleration though.

I'm happy.

I could really use some help. I have a 1985 zn700 that is overcharging badly. 17+volts at idle. I have just replaced the stator and regulator rectifier, I really don't know what else to go after. The bike has an aftermarket key switch, from local auto parts store, and no gauge cluster. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HEADLIGHT DRAINING BATTERY !!!!!

Hi, when we bought the bike the headlight would not come on, so we changed the brown/white wire to the empty slot on the JB, and the headlight came on, the battery keeps draining, so I put the voltmeter on it when I started the bike it would drop, I disconnected the headlight, and the voltage went up. Does anyone have any idea on how I can fix this ????? thanx.

You sure it was a br/wht wire and not a blue wire? Should've been blue, if it wasn't, change it back.

Need to go through the test steps and give us the voltages and ohms.

Yes I am sure it is the brown and white wire, when I unpluged it the headlight and tail light quit working.
