Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Hi, it is probly you battery, retifier or generator: generators are alternating current ( A C ) and the rectifier changes alternating current to ( D C ) direct current. if the retifier is passing A C then the battery will be no good anymore. testing for A C diconect the battery and check with voltmeter (set at 20 volt D C) if needle shows left hand swinging to right hand and back and fore, then your retifier is U / S unserviable also you will need a new battery, or your altinator is OPEN CIRCUIT, inside the engine the way this works there are 4 magnets 2 are north and 2 are south facing alternatave on the crankshaft and there are 2 horseshoe shaped stators, it starts with north then south and then the current go's one way then the other hence altinating, when a magnet is past near a coil it will produce current, but not direct current. we need the rectifier to change this. with a volt meter it will test the battery for volts and if it is dicharged. hope it is helpful gerry
