I received my new R/R from Ricks yesterday. Just a heads up, as far as differences go, the mounting holes did not line up exactly on my 89. (Part# 21066-1101, (Ricks Part# 10-301).
Sorry to hijack the thread, but while I'm on the subject of differences between RR's across model years, I am on my second R/R for this go around of my stator/RR replacement, and I am finding differences between the 2 that are both designed for my model year, and both were different from the spec table in the service manual. After the charging problems continued on the bike, following the install of a new K&N RR, I pulled it and did a check with my MultiMeter, and the resistance values I got did not match up with the service manual table. I wound up finding the Ricks RR at DennisKirk, and that showed up yesterday. The initial test with the multimeter also yielded different values from the spec table in the manual, and different from the K&N RR. Both of these checked out ok when I ran the diode tests outlined in the Electrosport guide. So while we are talking about RR's and differences across model years, is anyone else seeing the same results I am with regard to the differences from the table apparently on RR's for the same model year?!
The new RR seems to be charging the bike. I ran it for over an hour last night trying to see if it would continue to charge after the bike warmed up, which it did. However, I am still getting a voltage of .7 on the switched wire, which is lower than the .9 - 1.0 reading I was getting on the K&N RR, but still significantly higher than the .2 specified in the Electrosport guide. Since I am so new to all of this, I have no idea if these differences are to be expected. What are you folks seeing for voltage on the switched wire? I don't want the next symptom to be a fried stator! Been there, done that!
I am on the verge of pulling all of the wiring, for a complete overhaul. I just don't want to go through all of that effort for nothing. If other folks are not having similar results, then the problem has to be in the wiring, and an overhaul is in order.
