Question about Moto Guzzi Motorcycles
My 1993 California 1000 Guzzi started flashing charge light 2 years ago, would take quite a while to extinguish, but always would. Lasst year light would not go out, checked voltage at bat to be around 12 v off, and 11.8 running. Disconnected altenator, and started engine with a headlight across alternator, which came on very bright. Tried to bench test with 17 VAC across yellow leads, no output from red to case, and I do not quite know what white and black leads do. What is coming out of blk & wht ??

SOURCE: Battery not charging
run an ohm test on the stator wires, make sure you get readings through all combinations of any 2 wires. if you don't get an ohms reading between 2 wires that means you have a broken stator winding and the stator needs to be replaced. hook up a volt meter to your battery and test battery voltage at rest (bike off), at idle (bike on and idling should be at least 12.5 - 13 volts), and steady around 3 - 4000 rpms (should be around 13-14.5 volts. if it exceeds 15 volts your regulator is bad and needs to be replaced. if all numbers are about what I said, have your battery tested. If your battery is over 1.5 years old it should be replaced anyway.
