This bike has been like a Ford Ranger I used to own. The engine runs like a champ but the electrical systems have been crap.
PO had installed Baja Designs kit and Trailtech Vapor. The lights/directionals were always a bit flaky but seeing as I don't drive on the road very often, no worries.
At some point nothing was working. It didn't take long to find the BD reg/rec was good at idle, 12.4V, but putting out over 19V when revved up. BD is close by me so I just went over there and picked up a new one. Installed it and..... nuttin'. I checked the reg/rec output voltage and it was 12.6V at idle and 6V when revved up. WTF? I removed the battery conneciton and checked again and sure enough, 6V. So before I go back to BD to see about a new reg/rec, I was curious if anyone knew the correct AC output of the stator. I checked mine and at idle its ~12V AC, at 4k rpm its ~ 24V AC, and at 5k rpm is ~ 36V AC. Anyone know if this is reasonable?
Would 19V kill anything associated with the BD kit? Bulbs, flasher, etc.
much thanks Scott
