My Electrical Hell
So since getting the bike, I've been having charging issues. But I thought that was the least of my issues. Yesterday, while out leaving, suddenly the bike wouldn't start again. I check the starter solenoid, and the fuse is blown. No problem, I replace it, but yet still no power.
I get the bike home on a trailer, pull the seat off, and attach the charger just for laughs. Suddenly... Power! But it wont start, you can hear the relay tripping like the speed of light. Hmm...
I dig deeper and tear of the side to look at the previous owner's wiring job, and my jaw hit the floor.
Everything is direct wired to the components. The rectifier is connected directly with spade terminals. Same with the starter.
So now I'm undertaking the task of replacing all the damaged components. Anyone know where I can get the factory connectors? The factor plugs?
While I'm working on this, I'm basically going to be replacing the entire back set of wiring, the starter solenoid, the rectifier, and the stator. Any tips on getting out of this the easier/cheapest?
