Question about 2006 Triumph Daytona 955i

1 Answer

Overcharging battery!? I have saved so much money simply by reading. Thanks Display died, battery dead mid ride. Got home and hit the forum, found the wire by-pass, replaced the regulator myself, battery now charging. But at 17+v. I have not read anything about excess charging. I have not touched the stator. Could this be the last part of the problem? tr955i

If it goes over 17 then there is definitely a regulator fault, regardless of what the stator is doing. The very purpose of the regulator (it 'regulates' the voltage within limits) is to NOT allow the output dc voltage to climb when the stator output rises (normal) with increased engine rpm. In other words - by nature of way it works normally, the stator AC output Voltage will rise as the engine rpm increases - it will continue to rise all the way to peak engine rpm. The Rectifier/ regulator with its double-barrel name performs two functions: the first - rectifier - converts the AC output of the Stator to DC volts - if 'UN-regulated' the DC volts would also climb proportionally to engine rpm. But that is where the second function of the Rectifier/Regulator - the Regulator - comes in. The Regulator's job is to stop the voltage rising over a certain threshold even if the stator is trying to drive it higher. It does this by 'shunting' current to ground (short circuit effectively) in a series of pulses; this controlled operation is called regulation. The limit is going to be 15V absolute max and more typically 14.5 or so. If the output rises about this value then it absolutely is NOT regulating. Failures of the regulator where they simply don't regulate and allow full voltage to pass are rare (but not impossible) - much more likely to be short or open circuit, neither or which would give the symptom you have. It still sounds almost like you maybe wired it incorrectly? The stator is inside the left crancase cover - whether or not it has its own problems, have nothing to do with the lack of regulation causing battery volts to go to 17V.

Instrument Dashboard went dead but bike continued to run.


I would never think a bike was smart enough to shut down unneeded accessories like that but then again I haven't been around many newer ones much. I would just charge it ride it and see if it happens again. if you get done riding and the battery reads low again that should answer your question

It sounds as if your CMOS battery is dead or dying. Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Ground yourself

2. Open the case

3. Locate and remove the circular, silver battery ( it is probably labeled CR2035 or something like that)

4. Replace this with a new battery.

5. Power on your computer

Hope this is helpful

The battery on my 2007 Xterra just died. Is there a possibility of some sort of issue other than the battery being dead? Its only 3 years old.


Hi,

There are possibilities regarding battery become dead and can't be charge anymore.

The first one would be the battery has a life expectancy of 1.5 years to 2 years.

The battery if less than a year and died, that will be a manufacturers fault, where the battery might have some defects when it was manufactured.

The battery died less than a year can be attributed to overcharging of electricity from your alternator.

Your lucky your battery lasted for 3 years!

Hope that clears up your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Access voicemail from another line while away from home


The previous solution only works for older machines. I have the same Panasonic model and this works every time.
On your handset, hit the top center button(menu). Touch the arrow down button 7 times. Should say "Initial settings". Hit top right button on handset (display shows this is now the "select" key). Display now shows "Set Answering". Hit top right button again ( select key). Display now reads "Ring Count". Hit arrow down button 2 times. Display now reads "Remote Code". Hit select key again and enter your desired 2 digit remote code. Hit "Off" key. When you call the answering machine from the road, simply enter those same digits. Piece of cake. Enjoy.

Hi Juliett
huuum At your service!

You said,
You came home and the was no display showing - control panel seems completely dead - last time we used the stove the display was so dim it was hard to see.
_______________________________________________________________________________
I advice that you are correct!

From what I have read it sounds like a board should be replaced and the cost would be roughly $450 - is it worth it to call a tech or should I just buy a new one.


This like an expensive repair for an old range!

How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!

Buy New and save!

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Frigidaire has some good rebates this month!
