Check across the battery with the engine running at high idle with a FULLY CHARGED battery in the bike. You should read 14.5 - 15.0 volts DC.

If not, pull the plug where the voltage regulator plugs into the engine. With the engine running, check for voltage between the two pins or sockets in the plug in the engine. Put the red lead of your meter in or on one pin or socket, the black in or on the other socket or pin. With your voltmeter set to the 50 volt AC range, you should read about 30 volts or more. The voltage coming out of the stator is AC since your bike is equipped with an alternator. If you read this much voltage, the stator is good. If you read less or no voltage, your stator is bad.

Now, check to make sure your voltage regulator is grounded. That's why you usually find a star washer between the voltage regulator body and the frame on most bikes. The star washer will dig into each piece insuring a good ground. If the ground checks good inspect the pigtail coming from the regulator going to the engine. I've seen the wire inside the insulation of the wires break. Also check the large single wire that comes from the regulator and make sure it goes either directly to the battery positive side or to the connection where the battery cable connects to the starter. If everything checks good and looks good, the regulator is probably bad.

Hope this helps.

Revtech 110 misfires at 3500 RPM

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
19. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
20. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
21. Incorrect valve timing.
22. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
23. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
24. Incompatible performance parts.
25. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

Revtech 110 ON custom bike not sportster blowing oil through the carb

Your RevTech engine is a copy of an H-D Evolution engine. Just as with the Harley engine, it vents it's crankcase pressure through ports in the heads. There are "umbrella valves" made of rubber in the center section of the rocker box covers. These valves are made of a rubber like material and they will harden with repeated heating and cooling. If they get hard enough, they may not work as well as they should. This system does a fair job of removing the oil mist from the exhausted air but there is still some oil left in it. This oil will accumulate in the breather and drip out. You must clean the inside of the air breather occasionally to prevent this. However, if too much oil is coming out, you may have too much blow by on the rings or your breather gear in the cam chest may not be doing as it should. Harley uses a plastic breather gear and I've seen them break a tooth and stop turning. I don't know if RevTech uses a plastic gear or a metal gear. It depends on how much oil is coming out of the breather as to whether or not you have a problem. There are kits available aftermarket to reroute this vented air pressure outside of the air cleaner.

Good Luck

What engine exept vtx 1800 fits on my custom frame with same size

If you have a custom frame you could probably put about any engine on earth in there provided that it actually fits. If you want simplicity HD, Revtech, and Ultima are all "Harley Clones" and there is a never ending aftermarket for them. Lots of options for transmissions, accessories, power level, etc.

The VTX1800 engine on the other hand puts out just as much (or more) power and has something that the HD engines don't: A reliable track record. Down side to the VTX engine is that it is electronic and liquid cooled adding a lot of complexity to the build but if you're up to the task it'll be worth it. With the VTX you're pretty much stuck with the transmission Honda bolted to it, which is a shaft drive.

If you use an "HD" type engine it'll look classic, the sound will be un-matched, and when you're broke down on the side of the road it'll look freaking sweet for the other gawkers who are trying to help you figure out where the oil is squirting out.

If you use the VTX engine, likely you'll be the only one who'll ever know it's not an actual "Harley" type engine and it'll run to the end of the earth and back a thousand times without issue.

For the record I actually OWN a '96 Harley Davidson so I have an idea of what to expect.....they ****. If you can figure out how to use the VTX engine go for it.
