Re: charging issues 03 954
Had issue's with my charging system, which was fluctuating between 12.5v to 13.5v. Did all the tests in the manual and all the readings were ok. So did a couple of checks on the reg/rec which were ok. So decided to remove the stator to check it, some of the wires were a little blackened, but continuaty test passed so a little confused. so refitted the stator and started the motorcyle with stator disconnected from the bikes loom and put a 55w bulb across two terminals of the stator and measured the voltage across the bulb in ac and it was'nt kicking out much voltage across two of the phases and would hardley light the bulb up even revving the bike up. so this suggested that 2 of the phases were braking down under load. So replaced the stator and rotor with a modified kit. Problem solved. So the manual tests don't always prove the problem.
