Bike is overcharging. is it possible for the 3 white generator outputs to be mixed up, the connector plug on the reg/rec was recently taken apart for cleaning.
It makes no difference on the 3 whites...thats why they are the same color.
If the bike is overcharging, a few things to check.
Some older Yamahas had a brown wire from the signal cicuit that tied into the rectifier regulator as a reference to what the bike voltage was running at..if there is a poor connection on the brown...the reference voltage is low, so the RR jacks up the voltage to the bike to try and boost it.
If you have only a 4 wire 2 red 2 black output connector...insure the black wires are clean and tight as the regulator dumps excess current through those wires to keep the voltage down.
Also check the battery ground cable for clean, tight connections.
If all that checks out, I would say the RR needs replacement.
