My bike is not charging.
Tested regulator regulator's diodes using multimeter, not many of the ohmic values matched the table.
Tested alternator A/C output at 5000 rpm, not getting any reading.
Tested alternator stator resistances, all read as specified (0.2 Ohms).
Half functioning regulator may explain small amount of charging (reads 12.2 at battery, battery when engine is off at 11.8v)
However, not sure why I don't get any A/C readings. Regulator was replaced in August by a garage. Reluctant to replace again if there's an existing problem. Also reluctant to replace generator.
Are there any other tests or commonly known faults I should look out for?
