R/R problems

I was recently taking a trip with a friend of mine that has a 1994 Vn750. She had not done a R/R reloc on hers and I was worried about heat so I thought I would take my relocated R/R (also a 1994 VN750 with an Electrosport R/R) and let her use it for the trip since I was taking my Shadow. Although we had no electrical problems, when we got back I noticed that the connector to the R/R looked like it got really hot. Her R/R plug on the bike side is not in the greatest shape since she had a battery leak when she purchased the bike that damaged the plug. I removed the R/R from her bike and plugged it into mine and seen that as soon as I did and my neutral and oil lights came on as though I had the key on even though I did not have the key in it. Neither of us have had any electrical problems lately.

So now for the questions.
Anyone ever seen this before?
Does the ElectroSport R/R not work well with a stock stator? She had stock stator and R/R, I had ElectroSport R/R and stator so we were running a stock Kaw stator with an Electrosport R/R.
Anyone know where I can get a stator plug without buying the entire harness?

The ES R/R should work just fine with the stock stator.
AFA the stator plug, when mine crapped out, I just crimped some blade connectors on and marked where they went and hooked them up individually.
It sounds like there is a short somewhere in the system that turned itself on with the ES RR.

Hi thisguyinkc

If you have a look on the Electrosport web site under the wiring connectors and wiring section, there are two 6 pin plugs that I think are suitable for the wiring harness.

Electrosport Connectors

I think you can also get them from Rick's Motorsport as well.

My previous owner did the same as Sky Rider and used individual spade crimp connectors, the three wires from the stator do not matter in which order they go, but the three to the R&R and ignitor do matter, that is where using the plug is better.

Hope this helps.

I used crimp on wires like sky did...here is a diagram of the R/R showing which wire goes to which pin.
