Question about 1989 Yamaha FZR 600
My 1989 Fzr 600 wont hold a charge. will run for a while off of battery. The is also this silver little box that has a wiring harness going into it thatstarted smoking. Could this be me problem. The box is located under the seat where the battery and fuzuses are at.
Sounds like your regulator/rectifier is faulty....but it could also indicate an alternator problem. Don't run the bike or it will eventually hurt your battery and/or your alternator (if it hasn't already.)
The wire currents, voltages, etc needs to be checked (from the alternator AND from the rectifier) so I recommend you take the bike to a mechanic unless you have a multimeter and shop manual handy.
I've found Yamaha wiring connections to be slightly weak....and sometimes lead to the premature death of the reg.rectifier. Solution was to 'solder' the connections instead.
Good luck with the FZR.
