Hello all. I'm new here, just found this forum. Thanks to all for the great info found on here. Last couple years started having dead batteries. (OK so havent rode it very much lately). Had battery load tested. It is fine and I use the optimate battery charger. Last year I took it to dealer. For $150 they told me everything is fine, but I should be using a Yamaha battery instead of the Odyssey I have. BS. Same problem this year. Dead battery after a day of riding. Tested the voltage. Engine off 12.8V Running @ idle 12.4V 5000 rpm 12.9V So my charging system is not working. Stator test. W-W 0.5 Ohm on all three white wires. W - Ground 2.9Ohm on all three white wires AC voltage W-W (checked on all 3 white wires) 30 Vac @ idle 50 VAC @ 3000 rpm 75 VAC @ 4000 rpm So I'm a little confused now. I know the stator resistance should be .19-.24 Ohm W-W. My reading is a little higher. What does that mean? Is it a bad stator or should I try changing the rectifier/regulator first since it is so much easier? Hope someone here can help who has tested a bunch of these things.
