More electrical issues .
« on: March 26, 2015, 09:50:32 AM »
I have had my bike on the charger for two days , the device tells me it's full and the battery shows 13 volts ... But it won't activate the relays . I found that with the small red wire that plugs to the larger wire that runs to the starter solenoid attached the voltage drops  approximately one volt vs having it unplugged . This indicates a load but the ignition is off and the kill switch in the off position also. Checking resistance in this condition( red power wire unplugged ) from the red wire to ground shows infinity resistance , and yet there is still a voltage drop of aprox. One volt . Does this happen on anyone else's bike ?

I don't have the diagrams with me today.  Is the rectifier/regulator connected to the battery through that wire ? (the output transistor of the regulator might be leaking)

Yes, the small red wire connects battery to RR.

I just replaced the RR as it was allowing to much current through - more than 20 volts .... I think I May have to go over the loom systematically ...no doubt it will be educational . Wishing this bike was carb fueled and had no complex electrical system ...just a simple kick start ...
