Re: Bad Ground

Thanks Mike. I was also thinking about going this route. Wondering if I need to solder the connection after it is crimped. It is a (stock) crimped connection rite now. Thinking... if I go this route I'll need to heat it up to get the original off. Or use it as the flat stock to sister (marry) the 2 ...

Re: Bad Ground

Hey CrystalPistol. Why wouldn't it work on your tester. Not enough rpms? My Rigid drill says 2100 rpms on it. I thought That might be too fast. (over revving)But we run our tacs 2000 to get a good reading. So I figured it is fine.

Re: Bad Ground

So. If the battery holds at 12.3.4 Not 12.6 Is it bad? (also) I think it's a combination of bad ground-battery and alternator. I got the new ground and hot wire. I will be gettin another AWM battery. and rebuilt LAtrical Alternator when it gets back from California. YES... I just noticed the ground ...

Re: Bad Ground

I fabricated a thing to spin the alternator for the bench test. I got a 2 x 3. a Hole saw. a Hurricane shutter anchor stud and my small bench grinder to grind the extra point of the screw that stuck out and then to grind the slug down to fit the inside the alternator to spin with the screw gun. When...

Re: Bad Ground

Thanks for your input Mike. When I quit drinking I had to distance myself from the crowd I was running with. So I'm on my own at least for now. I like the Idea of marrying flat stock to the ground lug. Straps are pretty cheap I'll be replacing it While I'm waiting on the new Alternator. When I got t...

Re: Bad Ground

Thanks Bruce. you must be reading my mind. I just fired up the computer to ask about how to do a bench test, and what direction I should spin it, once I fabricate something to spin it with my drill. LOL. I did put it back on the bike today and jumped the exciter to my extra accessory posts hot side ...

Re: Bad Ground

Thanks thebruce and charkiehorse. I think I might have tried Auto zone last time. They won't test it because it has no pully.

Re: How to remove, analyze, gap and replace your spark plugs

Yep.Thats why one of the covers is missing. I lost my charging ability the other day (again) Good news is.. This time I purchased the 3 year replacement plan (amazon) It's time to see if Lacterical will honor it. It seems to be getting real hot down there at the alternator.

Re: How to remove, analyze, gap and replace your spark plugs

my little horn compressor fit on the left side of the battery box (area) with zip ties. You can only get to that when the battery is out. I think that might have been a tool bag spot. I don't those tools. I have real sets.

Re: How to remove and replace your rear wheel

When you get the tire off. Do yourself and your rim a favor. Take it to a bike shop and let them change it over. The rear tire is thick and really hard to get off and on the rim. I mangled my rim doing it. It's amazing it is holding the bead/air. I will never do it again. I will gladly pay someone $...

Re: How to remove and replace your rear wheel

Yes. you need to take the hitch off. Just remember when you are removing the tire. Separate the wheel from the hub before dropping it down. Mine dropped down and got jammed stuck. I had a hell of a time getting it off. you have to pull it to the left to get it off the hub before there will be enough...

Yes Majickman. I still have those things. I just couldn't get myself to throw them away. I have a rice junkyard down here. But, when I originally bought that 1100 His Mechanic blew up the motor and he didn't own up to it. It ended up costing me $600 for 1/2 a different motor. So I will NOT be giving...

Re: Welding Plastic

If you're interested in a low heat alternative, one can just use ABS primer and cement, applied to the inside of the panel to be repaired, to make a fairly durable bond. ABS cement is just ABS plastic held in liquid form by a quickly evaporating solvent, (acetone). You can utilize electrical tape t...
