Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
My yamaha v star 1100 is going through headlights like they're free. It seems to be happening only at high rpm (during warm-up periods, when the choke is on) for the low beam, and the high beam blows out immediately after turning the switch. Is this a bad voltage regulator or am I looking down the wring path.
Thanks a bunch.
How's the battery holding up? Check the voltage on the battery and also check to see if it is bubbling a lot. 13.8V is optimal for the battery charging with the engine running, but up to 14.4 is common. If it's running a lot over that and the battery is making a lot of bubbles, probably the regulator is the problem.
If the battery is low on electrolyte, the regulator doesn't have anyplace to dump electrons, and that could also be a problem, so make sure the battery connections are good and tight, too.
