Has anyone tested an alternator?
My '06, with 91,000 miles, hasn't seemed to be charging as well as it used to. I've done all of the normal tests: it puts out 13.6 volts at 2500 rpm. However, since I have the bike apart for a rear main seal job, I figured I would have the alternator tested, and maybe rebuilt, by an auto electric shop. I'm having trouble finding anyone who will do it since it doesn't have a pulley like it would on a car. I guess I can find a pulley at a junk yard and mount it on the alternator, but that seems like a pain in the neck.
Has anyone here ever had an alternator professionally tested?
