Re: testing the rectifier with a multimeter! need help

Anybody please?

Update:
Installed the new R/R and charged and filled the battery with fluids. installed the battery and R/R in place, started the bike, and voltage is 12.82 really low i would say, I installed a brand new stator last week from this date, rode once (sunday) died on me sunday night when i got home so i thought its the R/R battery is semi new, i really dont know what else is going on, im ready to kick this POS bike really,

About testing the R/R and Stator, Im not sure if im even doing it right thats why i try to post videos instead but no one seems to respond, im really clueless, im thinking of removing the stator and check it, and return it for warranty.

really guys, help me out, prior on testing the electrics, im confused. really i need help, im despereate.

Pictures or videos will help out alot , As in ALOT.
thanks yall!

You had 12.82V with the engine running before you replaced the stator. What voltage did you have after you replaced it?

adter replacing the old stator with the new one it read 14.75v after a good sunday ride when i got home, I checked the battery voltage with a voltmeter and it read 12.7v so im not sure if the stator was fried again? (this is a brand new one btw)

i bought a new R/R and installed it,

I dont know if my stator is fried again, i checked wires comeing from the stator i get 1.4 Ohms i think. manual said should be max of 1.0 ohms. is my stator fried?

on the R/R i dont know how to check this one but its brand new, just got it today

12.8v when running, this is all installed. R/R and stator.

how about the ohms i got from the wires coming from the stator? is that normal? or is it dead?

Re: testing the rectifier with a multimeter! need help

Hi
I cant make out your settings on the tester. No matter, it is not reading correcty. With the two test leads connected, it should give a reading of 000 (no Ohms resistance) with a decimal point in there somewhere. On my fluke, infinity (no leads connected) shows 100 M (meg ohms, milions of ohms resistance). A cheap meter will differ, I am presuming the 1 showing is the equivalent of infinity.
Look at your resistance settings, there will usuall be a high and a low Ohms setting on cheaper analogue meters.
You cant do any testing untill you can get the meter to read properly.
If you could post up a clear photo of the front of your meter it will help in getting you set up properly.

Cheers

Update:

i I did some testing this morning and only to find out that my stator went out!!! and its brand new aswell!! well how i did the test is simple, i have the bike in idle and i have my multimeter on the DCV option, i punt the negative probe on the negative battery terminal and i put the red probe on the stator 3 wires coming from the stator itself, remeber this are all connected to each other, tested the voltage each and got 2 wires up to 4.6 volts and one vire to .80 volts so one wire is shut, means to say the whole unit is shot, i only rode once last sunday and its already done, im returning it to ricks motorsports for replacement because its warrantied.
heres the exact unit i have.
