    Overcharging

    Hi Guys
    Things been going good for a while, plugging into optimeser at night no probs
    till this morning bike started but seemed slower in turning over got to work and back
    put meter on it 12.8v at tick over but 16.5volts at 4 - 5k
    i have already replaced stator , battery and latest RR from Jaws for the digi dash
    now not sure if the readings im getting are now excessive
    From one end of the spectrum to the other LOL
    any advice would be appreciated

    Yes it should never exceed 15 volts. Could you pop a pic of the R/R. That's what controls Stator output and suspect it's the problem.

    Also your going to need to park it till you get that voltage down. You stand a good chance of exploding the battery or frying control circuits in the ecm or the sensors.

    Re: Overcharging

    Ok so both are stock spec units. Suspect that the RR is your culprit. If you go here. About 1/2 way down there's a set of red lettered links for troubleshooting. Click on the RR section and it will take you through a testing procedure to verify the bridge diodes are still good.

    Also take note the black wire coming out of that set is NOT a ground it's actually the sense line that controls the RR's output. Make sure that wire is still connected in the harness or the regulator will act as you described

    Here where. No red letter or links!

    Re: Overcharging

    Thanks guys
    i know the black wire is a signal wire and if corroded or broken will cause this
    i will swap the RR over to the spare and see how it goes
    I see some people are now opting for the H020AA would this be a good move
    again guys thanksyou

    Hands down one of the best charging system upgrades you can do. It is more efficient at charging and helps unload the stator as well improving the life span. The only other upgrade I would highly recommend would be a voltmeter tied to the top of the battery that is triggered with the ignition. It will allow you to keep a eye on the charging system and reduce the chance of getting stranded.

    Re: Overcharging

    Hi Beestoys
    I have put the spare RR back on the bike
    its showing no more than 13.3v max
    12.8 at idle would this be enough
    i did have a voltmeter attached to the dash but it proved not to be accurate
    i would like to get something with amps included
    want to get heated grip but until i sort out the charge i dont want to drain it any further
    thanks for your help

    So the best way to do that would be to put in a relay triggered from a keyed source correct?

    13.3v is too low ... should be getting into the 14v range above 2500 rpm

    Sounds like you might have 2 bad RRs, one over-delivering and the other under-delivering.
    No good deed goes unpunished!

    Best way to go would be to look for a meter with 3 wire hookup. The 3 is a trigger wire that you tie to a power source that is switched. I'm still trying to find the meters I bought. I actually purchased 3 of them. 1 for my bike and the other 2 for my son's BB's. Just got to locate the buggers.

    I'd have to agree with leigh. Were you able to go through the test chart in the electrosport page I sent you. It has a cold check you can do with a meter to let you know if your R/R is shot. 13.3 is not enough to run heated gear. It's definitely better than 16 v and you could use that one to get around until you replace it. I'd highly recommend changing over to the newer MOSFET design if you do have to replace it.
