So can the stator be tested with the bike running>? I have done this test on other bikes before. between 2 of the yellow wires should be getting AC voltage 20VAC varying up to 50vac or more.
Is that right? for the vulcan.
I noticed in my saga to find out why my bike has been dying on me only sometimes if it gets warm then it seems the battery doesnt have enough to turn the motor over.. UH OH I can see it coming. I had already replaced the r/r when I got the bike, and now it seems my stator might be bad..
(what a bad stator.. never)
From the yellow wires to ground i have just over 1k ohms. 1.045k ohms to be exact. my meter only has a 200ohm and 2k ohm setting.
With the r/r not connected and the yellow wires disconnected I am only seeing 6VAC with revving the motor up. YES 6 thats between 2 of any of the 3 wires.
I just hate the idea of removing the engine..radiator and exhaust. But There has to be an easier cheaper way. And cutting the frame seems ok but I don't have a donor frame.
Dang why cant we just come up with a mod to grind the cover and use TOC insert? Guess all the grindings would get in the case.
And at $450 bucks it seems TOC should have made their $$ back by now and could lower this to the low $100's.
I am just thinking out loud here lol But If TOC only sold the mounting plate I could cut away all the stuff in the side cover.
I emailed TOC just now about just getting the insert.
