It shouldnt matter if the connector has only 3 pins...there are three primary windings on the schematics, and anyway you hook it up you should have an ohm reading between any two wires of 0.1 to 1.0 ohms..please check this out before you hook it up...if you have an open... the stator/alternator windings are bad, and if its got high resistance on any of the different combinations of wires.. its also bad. I had to rewire mine twice on my "cbr" because the connectors were melted and chared up. I replaced all the pins on the stator and rectifier and it worked for about a month and it did it again, so i rang the wires to the stator and it was good, so i changed the rectifier out and has been working fine now. hope you find this helpful.

How to test stator dr 650 suzuki 1997?

Find the three identical wires (usually yellow) that come out of the left case and go to the rectifier/regulator. Disconnect the wires and measure the resistance across any two of them. Switch the ohmmeter leads from one wire to the other in any order. You should read a very low resistance between any two wires in any direction. If one is high, the stator is bad. If one is very low the stator is bad. They should all read very close to the same.

I have a 2006 harley softail fxstbi nighttrain. I relpaced the stator and the voltage regulater. After doing so the stator plug came undone mixing up the wiring order in the stator plug where it connects...

I'm sorry but I don't have a wiring diagram for that model bike. If the plug only has two wires in it, it makes no difference which goes where because the output of the alternator is an AC current and as such, has no polarity. This is the input to the regulator which rectifies the current into a DC current and then regulates it to between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. The larger diameter wire coming from the voltage regulator goes to the positive side of the battery either directly or indirectly through a circuit breaker or the positive battery cable.

Good Luck

I have an 01 ultra classic I just installed a new stator but I didnt mark the wires before removing them from the plug. does it matter which wire goes in which side of the plug?

You stator output is an AC voltage that is rectified by the regulator turning it into a DC voltage to charge the battery. I am not familiar with the later model bikes with the Twin Cam engines. However. if there are only two wires in the plug that plugs to the stator, it does not make any difference which wire goes where into the plug. The only wire that does make a difference is the wire that goes to the battery with is the DC output of the regulator. Usually that wire is a larger diameter wire due to the larger gauge wire and heavier insulation on it.

Good Luck

All fuses must test and be good, including the ones not in the fuse box. The stator has AC voltage out to the regulator, so you are looking for the phase wires from stator to rectifier, isolate them(disconnect them) and read AC volts from these wires(not to ground but to each other) there are 3 different combinations so write down what they need three sets of numbers around 50 Volts AC with the rpms aroung 1500. if you dont get about the same on each of these you are probably looking at replacing the stator.the wires in the stator sometimes loose their protective coating and then develope too much resistance to output enough power to keep your battery full.(try disconnect all ubnessesary add ons) The wires from stator to rectifier often get hot and melt if not kept clean inside the connectors.(look fot wires that have been hot) Reconnect any that have damage.

The other part of my Question was :

Best bet is to take the rectifier back to where you brought it with the old one and ask if they are compatable .connecting up the wrong wires could damage the new unit .

I have a 1987 Honda Aspencade- the problem is the electrical connection between the stator and the rectifier - which is located on the left side next to the battery- has overheated and melted. I cut the...

Your rectifier is the problem .A rectifiers job is to save the wiring from over heating .it will only allow a set & safe voltage through your wiring ,any highter .and the wires will melt .They do break down ,either letting in too much current or to little .The new unit can be tested quite easily .Connect all the wires start bike check the voltage out put from the battery .13.4 volts is the hightest it should go ,no more .

Wire connector between stator & voltage reg/rectifier burnt

your voltage/reg. can be tested in a couple different ways check ground res. check res. then revs. bias on diodes you have ac in dc out it sounds like you may have a diode gone bad allowing ac curent to flow causing the wires to get hot
