Stator, R/R, Jb, Battery Questions
I own two of the Vulcan 750s. One is a 1993 and the other is a 1999. The 1999 battery is not charging. I also have swapped the JB on both bikes, swapped both R/Rs and swapped batteries. The 1999 is still not charging the battery and the volt meter shows no rise in voltage to the battery when the rpms go up. I have charged both batteries with my battery tender before running any tests. I have pulled all the fuses (except the main 30 Amp fuse) and the voltage still does not rise with increased rpms. I have tried moving the blue wire in the JB box and same results, no voltage increase. I have also replaced the ignition switch on the 1999.
Stator(s) is putting out up to 65 volts AC on both bikes (disconnected from the R/R) and no shorts or grounds or opens. Stator(s) seems to be fine. Both R/Rs seems to be good. The 1993 Vulcan is charging great and no problems with it. I would think just swapping out parts on the good charging 1993 to the 1999 would help locate the bad item !
I have cleaned all terminals (pins) and such for all the connectors and all looks good. No burned wires and no burned connectors or connections.All battery connections have been cleaned and all possible grounds cleaned.
I have read many many of the trouble shooting pointers given here on the forum and done all the trouble shooting that can be done. Im at a loss here guys. Chime in with your ideas !
