VERY STRANGE Stator Problems YET AGAIN!
oK I Have had a ongoing Stator/charging problems.This is the second one i have put into the bike.The first one worked for like 3 days then stopped. Got a replacement that i ohm out before putting it in. i got 0.5 across all leads A to B, A to C, B to A,B to C so one and 0.5 to ground. i installed it it has worked for almost 3 weeks. I was getting 13.5 at the battery.All was good until Friday i was headed home from work and noticed that my digital volt gauge was not hitting 13.0 at best it was hitting 12.5. So i when i got home i did a retest on the stator and got the Same readings as before i installed it.Without load other than what was required to run the bike the best voltage i got was 13.0 at high rpm and only 12.5 with all load Lights so on. I checked the AC output from the stator and got 20.0 on 2 of the 3 the 3rd was like 9.0. Ok now for the really weird part as i was testing the volts at the battery and i kept hearing a kind of growling grinding sound it Sounded to me like gears meshing with out oil that type of sound. You could also FEEL it if you laid your hand on the outside part of the stator cover plate. So i broke it back down removed the stator and checked to see if there was any sign of rubbing on the stator or the drum the stator rides inside of and they Were fine no sign at all of rubbing on either.So i reinstalled the stator buttoned every thing back up and STILL same sound and can still feel it if you place ya hand on the cover.BUT the noise stops and you can feel nothing when the stator is unplugged! Any ideas ??
