Troubleshooting Alternator Rotor
Earlier this summer I replaced my stator and R/R because my battery was not being charged by the bike. The old stator passed both the continuity test and the ground test, but failed the dynamic output test as one of the phases gave significantly less output than the other two phases. Now with the bike all put back together, the new stator is testing bad in the exact same way, it shows no shorts or fused coils, but one of the phases gives about 1/10th the output of the other two. Is it possible that my alternator rotor is bad? Or is there some other part of the charging system that might be the culprit? I would like to hear any possible alternatives before I go and order a new alternator rotor.
Thanks for your insights!
P.S. all electrical readings on the stator have been taken with the bike at operating temperature, and the stator leads disconnected from the rest of the wiring.
