Regulator / Generator testing
Just a few questions on charging issues.
Ive had a read through this post (unable to link) :
"836748-trying-understand-regulator-rectifier-stator-issues-options" and understand the process as such, but my mechanical skills are better than my electrical skills
My bike is a K7 750 which doesnt get used that much, however the battery seems to drop charge when used.
So either is simply a battery on the way out, or more serious charging issues.
As far as the test goes via the manual Section 9-8 Trouble shooting:
1) No accessories
2) No leaks < 1mA
3) Regulated voltage 14.95 v (5000 rpm, full hL)
4) Resistance - all about 0.8 and 0 to earth
5) No load performance
With the generator unplugged, I couldnt get any voltage between contacts, so I dont know if thats my testing method or a sign somethings wrong
Im not sure if I have enough posts for photos, so will try and post some.
