Yamaha wr450 regulator/rectifier testing
Posted February 25, 2007 - 09:55 PM
Problem I have is that the bulbs constantly blow when I increase the idle.

if you want to check - where your light plugs in - put the 2 meter leads across the 2 terminals and set it to ac volts (when u rev it, it will probably say about 28V and it should only be 12 - 14V. Remember.... AC not DC!
good luck mate

I had my reg ground to the same place as my lights (underneath the seat on the frame) and after blowing a bulb upon testing, I realized the ground wasn't going to do. So, I moved it to a motor mount (for JUST the reg, nothing else should go there) and everything has worked peachy since. I had a choice of two reg's: the Yami brand one at $60 or the generic one used for Harleys (tells you something about harleys ) for a mere $12 or so.
It's all about grounding!
