How do you put a plug on the motor?

take the back off the motor change the white and brown wires as shown on the side of the motor or if it has a knob turn it to 120 volts then put the black wire on the F1 lead and the white wire on the F2 lead and the green one gets screwed to the case under the green screw

How do you test stator on 1990 heritage

Get yourself a meter. There is 2 typical tests on a stator. One is the I.B. test ( Insulation break down.) Your testing to see if the coating on the wires has burnt off and is allowing the stator to touch the case. Set your meter in ohms. ( the horseshoe ) Unplug the stator from the regulator. Put your lead in one hole of the plug and the other lead in the other. With the key off you should get some sort of number. i.e. .2 .02.3 etc. If you are not then the stator wire is broken. Next is to take one lead out and run it to a case bolt. Do you have numbers? If you do then the stator wire is grounding out on the case. All of these symptoms require a new stator. Now put your meter in VAC or the double lines with the squiggly line in it. Put one lead in each hole. Start the bike . Every 1000 rpm you should be getting around 25 VAC. at 2000 you should be putting out 50 VAC and @ 3K 75 VAC. Now you have an older bike so the numbers usually aren't that high. If you are getting 16 at 1k and so on up the register then you are doing ok. It's your regulator that's bad not the stator.

To check the stator you'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Put the meter's function selector switch to OHMS, R X 1 SCALE. Touch the two meter leads together and notice the reading. It should be something like 0.7 ohms or so. Now, touch one lead to the engine and the other lead to either of the two metal contacts in the plug in the engine case. Do not allow that lead to touch the engine case. Your meter should read infinite ohms. Then move that meter lead to the other metal contact again not touching the engine case. You should still read infinite ohms. If your meter reads 0.7 ohms or anything other than infinity on either contact, your stator is shorted to ground. The oil on the plug has nothing to do with this. The plug is made out of a rubber compound like an oil seal. Over the years of heating and cooling the rubber gets brittle and shrinks a bit. Then, the oil in the primary seeps between the plug and the engine case. This is common but it does not effect the operation of the stator. To stop the leak, you usually have to replace the stator.

Good Luck

How to check charging system on 2004 road king

To check the charging system on your RK, first you need a fully charged battery and a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter). To check the entire system, connect the red meter lead to the postitive battery post and the black meter lead to the negative post. Put the meter's function selector switch in DC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS OR GREATER. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. The meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. It may take a minute for it to max out depending on how "hot" your battery is.

To check the alternator output, follow the wires from your voltage regulator to where they plug into the engine case. Unplug the plug and look inside the engine case side. You'll see two metal pins or sockets down in the plug. These are what we are going to check the voltage on. Since the voltage is AC, there is no need to worry about which meter lead goes on which pin. Put the meter's function selector switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS OR GREATER. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch one of the meter leads to each pin down inside the plug. Do not let the meter leads touch the case or each other. Your meter should read at least 30 volts.

If you alternator is putting out at least 30 volts, it's good. If it's putting out at least 30 volts and your voltage at the battery is below 12.5 volts, the regulator is bad.

I bought a cool master case and put everything together right but when i push start i get fan whirl off the psu and nothng more. how do i solve this?

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I just purchased yesterday and found recall notice in upper tour pack. The battery was low charged over night and am going to check voltage and amps at battery while running today. What are the telltail...

With the battery fully charged, use a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check the output of the charging system. Connect it across the battery, red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle of about 1500-2000 RPM. The meter should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts.

If the meter does not read correctly, unplug the regulator where it enters the front of the engine case. You'll be measuring the AC voltage at the engine case side of the plug. Put your meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT range. Put one meter lead into one metal contact in the plug and the other lead into the other metal contact in the plug. Makes no difference which lead goes to which metal contact. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 30 volts or better.

If you do not read 30 volts at the engine, your stator is bad. If you have 30 volts or more at the engine but low voltage at the battery, your regulator is probably bad. This is a simple test and it's accuracy is about 90% or so.

Good Luck

My battery is not charging, I put in new battrey and still has the same problem..

If you're sure the battery is good. we'll test the charging system first. You'll need a DVOM (digitial volt ohm meter) to test the system. Start with a fully charged battery. Connect the red meter lead to the positive post of the battery and the black meter lead to the negative. Put the function selector switch of the meter in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read between 14.5 - 15.0 Volts. If not proceed to the stator test.

Look down on the front of your engine and find the plug coming out of the case where the voltage regulator plugs into the engine case connector. Unplug this connector. Down inside the connector are two contacts. These contacts are where we're going to put the meter leads. It makes no difference which lead goes where as we're measuring AC voltage. Put the meter's function selector switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch the meter leads to the two contacts down in the case. You should read at least 30 volts.

So, if you don't read the 30 volts at the engine case, the stator is bad. If you 30 volts or higher but the test at the battery was bad, replace the regulator.

Good Luck

I changed my stator out on a 2003 fxdx dyna glide and it still wont keep my battery charged , i also put a new regulator and battery on it . help

Well, that's all there is to the charging system, a stator, a rotor, a regulator, and a battery.

Charge your battery until it fully charged. Take a digital volt ohm meter and connect the red lead to the positive and the black lead to the negative lead of the battery. Put the meter in DC volts, 20 or higher range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 14.5 to 14.8 volts on the meter. If so, your charging is working as it should. If not, proceed to the next step.

With the engine off, find the plug where the regulator plugs into the engine case. Unplug the connector and look into the part that is inside the case. Using your DVOM, put one lead into each plug or pin in the connector. Be careful not to touch the sides of the case and it makes no difference which lead goes to which pin as the voltage is Alternating Current instead of Direct current. Put your meter in AC voltage, 50 volt or higher range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 30 volts or higher. If not, something is wrong with the stator. As long as you have 30 volts or better, your alternator is working as it should

Your regulator must have a good ground. I always put a 'star washer" on the regulator mounting bolts between the regulator and the frame.

If you used a new rotor, I have run across one rotor during my time that the magnets were not strong enough. You could hold a screwdriver up to it and tell right off that it wasn't right. Only seen it that one time though.

Good Luck
