Question about 2003 ATK 500
Ok I went through all my connections on my bike for the regulator/rectifier/battery/alternator. I get 12.64 volts from the battery on the charging line and on the alternator coil line there are 3 plugs with yellow wires. The two perpendicular to each other I get 0.4 ohms (book says I should get .1-1 so thats good) but I get nothing when I touch either of those yellow wires to the 3rd wire. On the regulator rectifier I get nothing/nada/zilch for any omage going from any wire on one connector to any wire on the other (meaning red on one connector to yellow on other etc etc). The only reading I can get is one the 4 p connector I go red to red and when i go green to green I get ohms I believe it was .1 ohms. So it looks like my rectifier is bad. When I go back to the stator motor I check each yellow connector with ground (meaning I touch the red lead of my meter to the yellow wire and the black to the ground on the bike which is the metal frame location that my service manual shows) and I get nothing no ohms whatsoever on any of the 3 leads to ground. Could my stator or the wireing to the stator be bad? as for the battery part when I touch the negative lead to the battery terminal I get less than .1 Ma so the battery is good. When I start the bike the voltage is 12v even and then when I slowly increase it I can only get it to go upto 12.8v so my guess is something is working but not correctly? I am kinda confused. Should I just replace the rectifier and the stator motor? Or based on my info do I just need to replace the rectifier?
Who told you to test your R/R that way? When you're testing the stator by looking for resistance between the yellow wires and ground do you get 0 or do you get no reading/infinite? If you get 0 the stator is bad. There's a PDF here: http://www.electrosport.com/technical-resources/library/diagnosis/pdf/fault-finding-diagram.pdf If you use this diagram you won't have to ask us any questions other than where do I get xxx part?,,,
