Thanks for the replies.
The bike just cranks slowly and eventually won't crank (click, click, click). The battery is either not getting charged enough or has no capacity.
But wait! I just got back from Checker Auto where they tested the battery and the machine said 187 CCA; I have the Yausa YXT14AHL-BS maintanence free, CCA of 210. Only 10 percent difference, probably not the culprit. What do you guys think?
I agree with Jon, is seems that the voltages should be a little higher. BTW, I cannot access the troubleshooting link that you gave. I guess I will have to go through the whole procedure tomorrow---unloaded stator voltage, regulator output voltage, current in. Can't think of anything else to test. I'm kind of suspecting that, since (if?) the voltage is low, the stator may be partially shorted. Has anyone seen an R/R that is faulty out of the box, causing low regulated voltage? I just got mine, OEM from Ron Ayers.
Well, I'll let you know what I find. Any other ideas would be appreciated.
