Re: 2000K1200LT Charging light glowing
wow, Thanks again for your response, so I rode with 3 batteries hooked up with a solar panel LOL to charge it so I could at least ride to town and back, but when the bike pooped out a few weeks ago and wouldn't run any ,then I was forced to start to tear it apart, I had decided a few months ago that IF I could replace the regulator it might be the key ,and I was right ,but putting it in was a real problem. so , with the tank off and battery out, I cut the top of the old alternator off with a long sharp woodworking chisel ,( I knew where to cut because I had the ebay replacement alternator and regulator that I could examine, so I cut along the breather vents of the plastic very carefully of course and could only go 80 % of the way, the rest, was not able to get access to it, the frame is in the way, so I lifted and bent back toward the frame the remaining cover enough to unscrew and remove the regulator ,,when putting the new used regulator in I used a tiny amount of hot melt glue to hold the screws in place and screwed it in. I couldn't tell if it would work until I fixed the hall effect sensor wires, but was sad to see the blaring warning light and 17.2 volts wile riding. LOL that's my story, and I love my 2000K1200 I bought it new off the showroom floor and have had 20 years of fun with her. Now as im old retired and living in a camper the life has changed from my younger, more prosperous days ,but I can still ride with a smile ,,the original Bosh regulator number is: Bosch 1 197 311 542 voltage regulator , but finding one is another issue
