JETHRO ok sorry i did mean ac volts ,I checked when cold with stator disconnected from r/r so i will do hot test .thanks

thtanner 40VAC seems a bit low. I'm used to seeing 55VAC+ @ 5k rpm.. or am I being too optimistic?

If it's not grounding out when hot, and passes the other tests, it's probably fine. Maybe I'm used to specs from TPE rewinds.

Spockster If you meant 20-40 volts AC, it's right in the ballpark. Does the stator pass all the ohm tests? Same results when it's hot?

Should do all the ohm tests on the r/r, sounds like it may be shorting out some way. If the r/r passes the tests, running the 12v positive straight (with a fuse) from the r/r to the battery will get it away from Junction Box gremlins. A MOSFET setup will also do that.

stator, r/r problem

Hi all , The sun has finally returned across the pond so unwrapped the VN 750 and went for a 20 mile ride,When i got back the wiring had melted on the r/r connector so swapped the r/r for a cheap chinese one and that blew after 5 minutes .I have checked the stator and seems ok but i am only getting 20-40 amps off each leg so do you think this is a bad stator ? I am going to put on a mosfet r/r so dont want to damage that one as well. Has anyone got any input on this . Thanks JETHRO
