got some pics ofthe wiring hack job.
black plug comes out of alternator
under the tank
also under tank, this plug is for the voltage regulator?
now when i first rode the bike, it fired right up and ran fine. about a mile down the road it started to sputter and died. hit the button to start and nothing it drained the battery. got home and charged the battery and fired it up and disconnected the battery while running and it died. so it was not charging correct?
well today i was tinkering with it and when i disconnect the battery while running it didnt die, the rpms would change and the headlight got brighter. this was with a fairly cold engine rather than hot/running temp while riding. whats this mean? if i get a regulator would it be fine?
sorry for the long posts, im new to these bikes and am just trying to learn some.
any help is appreciated
