Re: Alternator change
The bike died on the way home monday and found the battery dead.
Got home charged the battery, started her right up. The red light stayed on for the battery.
Checked voltage to the battery and no change, just stayed at 12v even with high RPM.
Checked all the obvious wiring, all good. So its either the voltage regulator or the alternator. Im buying a used altenator which will have the regulator and if that does not work I already have the alternator. But I cant complain, its really the 1st trouble I've had in 218k miles. I dont mind the work, just I was planniing on doing the clutch during thanksgiving week, but now that may change if I have to go into it that much.
Thanks for the input.
