Fault finding flowchart - M/C Charging systems
« on: August 08, 2005, 01:31:31 PM »
Hey all, we found this while trying to troubleshoot the bandit's battery problem.  It might be of use to others as well:
https://www.electrosport.com/Images/fault_finding.pdf

came from this page:
https://www.electrosport.com/electrosport_fault_finding.html

found the link to it from here: http://faq.f650.com/FAQs/VoltageRectifierFAQ.htm

Mine turned out to be a loose wire, whereas so many places wanted to test it for me, or sell me a stator or RR, or ...  

A little time and best to have a second person available to help rev and such, but it was easy.  (I'd say we ran the test in about 20mins, and that was relearning how to use the multimeter too.  Ran it all the way through the second time, to make sure nothing else was interfering, overkill I'm sure, but this peace of mind was free.)

In the end, I ended up replacing the battery, probably from how long we were troubleshooting before we happened across this.  Although, I'd rather pay ~$60 for a new battery than for a new or used stator, or Regulator/rectifier.  What I saved I can put in the tank,.. a bunch of times over. :)

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.
