Ok. Does my rectifier have to be firmly attached to the subframe for a good ground?

Also, can I directly connect the rectifier to my battery?

Here is my symptoms


It has done the same thing on two stators. I just don't want to spend some extra money on a rectifier.

No, the regulator doesn't need to be grounded, but attaching it to the frame helps it dump the heat.
Looks like the regulator is fine since it's stops the voltage going over 15V.
How much AC voltage are you getting on each phase of the stator?
Have you checked that the rotor is magnetic all the way around?

I haven't checked the rotor. Can I do the stator output test since its brand new and will that tell me if the rotor is bad?

Of course, I think we've advised you to measure the stator output perhaps half a dozen times now?

I thought it was just to test the stator... Sorry. I'll get this done today/tomorrow as soon as I'm around the bike

It is to test the stator, but if the stator reads very low then check the rotor with a piece of ferrous metal.

Come to think of it, when I changed out the stator I dont remember fighting with the cover taking it off or on. I remember my lil cousin saying something about he fought with his cover on his Hawk GT when replacing his stator and that he actually got a finger or something.

Mine came off real easy and i was able to set it back into place without trouble...

I get 10VAC at idle, then right around 30VAC at 5k RPM between each pen. Brand new stator. So I'd say the flywheel is bad?

Yeah that is really odd. I have changed mine 3-4 times and have always fought the magnetic pull to get it off and put it on correctly. You may have found your problem.

i guess i know what to try next!

I did take a 4 hour trip(2 hours each way) in traffic my battery got real low and i had to push start the bike. but after 80 miles on an expressway running about 90 the entire way when I pulled up at home the battery was fully charged. so 5k+ rpms it will charge the battery if the headlight is off.
