This test should be done with the rectifer and stator both disconnected and engine running..............Yes the bike has to be running, and you test the voltage out put of the stator in AC volts............
So you hooked one of the meters wires to the engine ground or engine frame and then tried all three wires, I believe they are white coming from the stator and got three different readings ranging in range from 1-7 at idle to 0 -14 -30 when reving it up some, did you have the stator unplugged when doing this, meaning the stator was not hooked to the voltage regulator, or was it hooked to the bikes electrical system.........I tested the stator today finially. I tested all three wires. First one I checked was around 3-7 volts at idle and went up to around 30 when reving it. The second one I tested was 1-2 at idle and went up to around 14 volts when I reved it. The third on did not seem to do anything.
This was done with the I'm guessing ground was unplugged (single black wire with connector) and the regulator plugged in as normal
Can anyone confirm that my findings are normal?
So i'm guessing that if they arte accurtate then it has to be the regulator. Right?
To me all three wires should produce the same type of voltage, it is similiar to an alternator in that respect, it has three phases all contributing to the charging system equally.Right,I used the frame for a ground. The stator was unplugged all together. The main 3 wire plug and also the single black wire.
My idea is the stator is no good.........I ohmed them out one at a time with the ignition off and the quad not runnning and only got a reading from one of the wires. I did them two at a time and got nothing from all of them.
