okay back to the bike.

Recommended Posts

okay considering the an needs bits doing the bike got side lined.

however bought a new wheel today for £170 i couldnt let it go.

so just the charge issue and speedo not reading properly to sort and maybe i will get this bike on the track in the spring party


with either battery not charging or speedo not working where would you guys make a start with checking? the bike had a new stator fitted by a previous owner after the crash so its obvious they missed or made a mistake somewhere.

and speedo is stumping me as ive pout a new sensor on it, put a set of standard disc bolts on and it still ready 12mph when im actually doing about 90. hopeing its not the clocks as cant find any with the low miles the bike has done. but it has had a new set. due to the originals flickering.

Here's a handy guide:

charging fault finding

Or get hold of a workshop manual if you need more specific info.

If it's an electronic speedo, then they have been known to play up with reg/rec issues, so sort the charging out first mate.  Or if it is a dedicated track bike, then just throw the clocks away :-)

yeah see i wonder if they were barking up wrong tree with alternator bits. when it seems to just not charge rather than overcharge but could still be rec i spose.

and it will still be used on the road for now.

agree Chad, I would start with the Regulator/Rectifier. Battery, instrument bulbs, rev counter all destroyed on the kawasaki 500 by reg/rec failing and putting 19volts to the battery.

Be sure the battery's up to scratch Chad, a weak cell can exhibit similar symptoms to those you're experiencing. Smile
