I recentely hooked my lights back up on my Wr as I am selling the bike and found them not to work. I measured the DC voltage at one of the lighting power wires and found no DC voltage just AC. I pulled off the regulator and dug the PCB out of the rubber that is surrounding it. I measured the transistor and all diodes and they seemed ok. There is a SCR in there that does all the work so I replaced that. I hooked it all back up only to find that both halogen globes were blown and thats why it didnt work in the first place. I got new bulbs and the lights worked. I put all the indicators back on and they all worked until I revved the bike and the globes blew. I measured the voltage out of the regulator and there was still no DC, but up around the 20-30v AC mark. I am pretty sure that regulator is dead and causing this high ac voltage to be generated.
Anyone know voltage (AC or DC) should be coming out.
