old 85-86 bike w/bad regulator
Ok heres a nifty question for you all. I own a old 85-86 VN750. I bought it for $500, and from the get go had charging problems, I took the engine out, changed the stator and regulator, now please understand, the stator seems to be running just fine, but the reg's always fry right at the connector. The regulators always come with a pig tail for the hook up, and the white wires are always smaller on the regulator side then on the main wire side, also the brown wire is larger on the reg side then on the main wire harness side. I think thats the problem. Please understand I've tried figuring this out, I tried using Dealer parts, parts from bandit and local aftermarket places, their all the same. some are even 5-pin connectors, which never come with rewire directions.So how do I fix this delema? I like this bike, its old and normally reliable, as long as I keep her running. Is there a solution??????????? just so you know the bike was bilt in 9/86 but some mechanics at kawa still say its an 85.
