Re: whats the correct mosfet rectifier and wire harness to order
ok so I got it all put back together and the bike starts and idles fine. It is pouring rain here and I don't really like to ride in the rain...so unfortunately I have not road tested it.
I put my multimeter up to the battery while it was idling and the voltage was sitting around 12.5 volts and if I brought the rpms up a little bit, the voltage would go up as high as 14 volts or so. But I didn't rev it above 6,000 rpm so I don't know if the voltage gets higher as you get higher in the rpm range.
I will be keeping it on a battery tender until it dries up and then I'll be able to road test it. Looking at the weather forecast though, that won't be for a month or two.
Thanks again for the help.
EDIT: Checking the service manual, the voltage is supposed to go up to about 14 v when you hold the rpms at 5,000 so apparently my bike is running normally again. I'll just have to wait and see how it does on the road.
