Re: voltage reg

Yikes!! I thought, new 954, no more R/R problems! My VFR likes to eat them for breakfast, now I see 900's have this problem too? Say it ain't so!

That is your R/R. Try Electrex for a replacement. They usually have pretty good prices.

Good luck

Re: voltage reg

I had one go bad in my 900rr and you couldn't tell just by looking at it. I think I paid around $100 for a salvaged one....

Sometimes they blow a hole in the potting compound (that black stuff with the writing on it) but it doesn't look like yours has. Check the plug pins and the cables out for signs of heat. Also check out the connection to earth and to the battery. All these can arc and overheat. I haven't heard of them causing a problem on later blades. I had a 96VFR and they were the achilles heel of that bike and though Honda were made painfully aware of the problem they put it in the too hard basket.

An auto electrician should be able to tell you if yours is shot. If you have a multimeter you can do it yourself. You might want to check out the Electrex Fault Finder site.

Re: voltage reg

hey thx for the link..i think what i'll do before i buy a new one is get it tested..im hoping the r/r or the battery is the problem and not the alternator or some hidden bad connection.

Re: voltage reg

Had one go on my VFR as well (a couple acctually) they are the achillies heel of the VFR) But when mine went it went in style and melted the RR (Regulator/Rectifier), the plug where it connects to the harness, and toasted a battery. Also with what RPinOZ said, check the grounds real good, both the battery and the frame. I started having trouble on another RR in the VFR and started checking into it, and after taking a wire brush to the frame ground my symptoms went away. I had a LED voltmeter on that bike just for that reason.

As for the part, keep your eyes on ebay, I have seen them on there as a group of parts...

Re: voltage reg

Hey Fireblade RR, Universal Cycle is wrecking a 96 900RR, but I already have the Magneto and flywheel off her. I'm ordering the forks this week too.. If he dosn't know the price of a new one, he'll ask you, then just cut that in 1/2..Not too bad to deal with..
