Charging system impending failure?
Written by kjp986 on 11/14/2010 at 12:44 am

Is the "Hot Wire Mod" anything more than removing the plug and soldering the
wires together in it's place?

until recently it showed very steady and predictable readings. This week I'm
seeing changes of 1-1.25 volts at steady speeds. Cruising on the highway at 70,
I'm seeing it read 11.9 to 12.4 to 13.1.

      I'll have time on Sunday to get into it a bit more. If the plugs are the same, I have my '99 VFR apart and I can swap out the R/R to see how that works. I read a lot of R/R stuff on the VFR Discussion forum, but usually they spike a lot more
