Hey Leland,
I do remember the most of those details from back then but I don't remember if the stator was tested?? Seems like I'm sure you would have done this however I would ask that you run the stator tests again since it might be more apparent now.

Also take a close look at the R/R connector. Your '89 does not have a lower stator connector so check all the wire connections in the piggy back plug as well as the main plug connections.

It is obvious that your 80 mile continuous riding has been able to cover the issue. Add in the trickle charger and you would be good for some time.....my guess (not explaining all the oddities with the jumpers) is that you have a stator issue of some sort. Hope I'm wrong so you can avoid the work but it would put you at ease with discovering a definite problem source.

I remember having a discussion with one of the R/R manufactures regarding the order of the three yellow wires and if they shorted or were misplaced (say replacing the connector) if it would effect the operation of the R/R.....the best answer was that it would not effect THEIRS....couldn't tell me about any others R/R. This is a question for the guy with silicone in his veins, Seth. When stator leads are shorted what will the R/R see???

Best Pogo

Very strange "repair" (long)
Hi Coasters,I had a really weird one happen on the PCH ride a few days back.Tuesday, while heading north on CA49, we stopped for butt and potty breaks at North San Juan. When we got ready to leave and I went to start up

    Leland,Exactly how do you hook your jumpers at the bike?Fred

    Leland,Since you know better than to have loose or corroded connections at the battery, we can rule that out. Shorting the battery with the engine not running shouldn't affect anything other than the battery. I suppose it's possibl

    Did I just feel my ears burning?On my PC, the previous owner put some wire from the battery through a small hole into the trunk. The ends are capped with some wire nuts. It has sat that way for five years since he installed it and was only

    Hey Leland,Once again the upside voltage thread begins! LOL for the rest of the gang, a few years ago I requested information from the group in trying to define an electrical malfunction where your voltmeter reads higher voltage at idle than at

    Hi Pogo,When I originally had the upside down voltage problem, I swapped the R/R with a known good one and nothing changed.I do NOT have the direct wire mod to the R/R.I actually went out and bought a battery load te

    Hello Coasters. How I read it, the ground has been in contact with 12 Volt and how many Amp? Alfred

    Seth, Thanks for the overview and especially the moving pictures!!!way better than a Powerpoint or another phase graph. Another mechanical failure that leads to an open with no output is the soder connection at the "Y" overhea
