Re: Going to look at a 95 900rr Sun. What to look for as far as problem areas??
Go through and check the plugs all, the earths all, and the general condition of the wiring.
If needed you can get all the plugs you need to replace, or just hardwire with solder.
My preferred solution would be fit the regulator on the left side, run the shortest possible wire from the stator to the regulator direct into the plug, and replace the other two with a 30A fuse to the battery +ve, and a nice thick cable direct to the battery negative.
I'll get round to this on my own bike eventually, but it's one of those things that's tough to find motivation for while it's working.
Do the above work on known good components, and you eliminate the chance that any original wiring is melted or corroded and causing your issues. Hit it with the big hammer first, saves time and money in the end.
Consider a bigger, stronger regulator for example MOSFET kit off eBay, which have everything you need to wire up as I described.
Man I'm not surprised he wanted it gone. If you'd mentioned known or suspected electrical issues in the first post we'd have probably told you to walk away.
