So I removed the stator and took it in to get a replacement. The shop tested it or me and found everything in working order. I have done the tests for the regulator/rectifier and it seems to be good. My manual tells me that the only way to test the rotors is to swap them out with new ones. should I not be able to tell if these rotors are magnetized without swapping them? The rotors that I have currently are original to the bike and do not seem to have any magnetic charge at all. When I took the stator in I was shown used rotors that they would sell me as a replacement but these also had no magnetic field to them. How can I tell without shelling out $80 bucks for used rotors that may or may not be good? And am I even on the right track??? I'm still only pulling 13.5 volts out of the charging system and I need help. I looked at the microfiche for your bike. the rotors are only magnetic when the field coild is energized. You do not have a permanent magnet rotor. so no magnetism when unenergized is normal.,

Check to see that your brake rotors are tightly bolted to the rim and also check for a cracked rotor. A crack would be hard to see. If it is when you use the front brake the rotor on the right side would be suspect. If you hear the sound when you use the foot brake the left rotor is the one to check. If you tap the rotor with a wrench and listen to the ring sound of both rotors they should sound about the same a cracked rotor will have a duller sound. Be sure to find the problem before you ride.

My harley davidsons front brake pads slightly rubs against my rotor. when i slightly apply the brake it stops. Can anyone tell me whats wrong if anything? I posted this question a few days ago and i was...

Ok, on disc brakes, the pads always have slight pressure on the pads. When I say slight, that's exactly what I mean. The pads slight pressure on the rotor is designed to keep the rotor and the pad clean and free of water. Thus good braking in wet conditions. There are no springs or anything to 'pull' the pad back away from the rotor.

Now, as for warpage. Since the disc brake rotor on a motorcycle is a very thin design, a bit of warpage is not uncommon. The only way to accurately check for warpage is to check the rotor with a dial indicator. Your local shop can do this for you but as long as you're not getting a "surging" feeling when you apply the brakes, you're fine.

From what you have described in your post, there's probably nothing wrong with your brakes. If you have any doubt however, you need to have an experienced mechanic check the brakes on your bike. Defective brakes can cause serious injury or death. Do not ride a bike that you are not certain of the servicability of the brakes.

Good Luck

Battery ques

Put a voltmeter on the battery. Everything off the battery should be 12.6-12.7 volts or so. A little higher or lower is o.k. Start the bike. Rev up to about 3000 RPM. Voltage should climb and then go to about 14.0-14.5 volts or so. Again a little over or under is O.K. If the voltage doesn't climb above 13 volts or goes over 15 Volt you definitely have charging issues.,,,

My bike die

my bike just died. It started right back up but as I gave it gas it would die again. I managed to roll it out of traffic into a parking space. I tried the choke the fuel valve but nothing worked. It would idle, but as soon as I would give it some gas it would just sputter and die. I got a ride to my house where I got my truck and came back to my bike. I started it up and soon as I gave it some gas, it died. I started it up again and gave it some gas and then it started working just fine. I revved it a few times, but it wouldn't die again. I drove it home and didn't have a problem. It seems to be running fine now. What the heck?? It only has 693 miles on it. It has almost a full tank of gas. What could possibly be wrong?,it's fuel or air related. If your bike didn't have any issues at all, no minor symptoms until it fell on its face like that, I'd wager something worked its way loose. Could be something is preventing fuel from reaching the carbs or something rattled loose in your airbox or carb boots. If something blocked off your air filter it would show those symptoms, or if you suddenly had a huge vacuum leak from a carb boot coming undone. I'd start by verifying you have fuel in the carbs by attaching a length of tubing and opening the drain screw at the bottom. Fuel comes out of your carbs, look elsewhere. No fuel, find out why it's not getting to your carbs. Perhaps your fuel line kinked.,,,
