Re: Of Floorboards and Linked Brakes

Re: Old Alternator

bellboy40 , so according to the elec print, i think i have it right by putting bat voltage to both of the terminals where the plug goes, acting like a bat voltage sense, and large lug back to bat

Re: Old Aleternator

Could you use a drill to spin it, you may net get the full voltage out of it, But you could tell if it is working, wonder what RPM it spins at when on the bike ??

Old Alternator

I replaced the alternator on my 1500 last summer and have old 30A sitting on my bench, Question are they worth rebuilding or dumspter it ??.
Kinda hate to throw it out but, Is it worth the trouble to repair, I did all the necessary checks on it and turn out the voltage regulator is bad

Re: Strange side effect of LED dash conversion???

Low fuel light is controlled by a thermister in the tank, as the fuel level drops and as the thermister heats up the resistance decreases causing the light on the dash to illuminate

Re: Fork Oil Change

If you dont have schrader valves, getting the spring compressed and installing the cap is not as easy as it sounds, i ended up removing the forks to building a compressor to reinstall the nut, The nuts are Aluminum and strip easy

Re: LAtrical

Would be interested to see if it works, sounds like i had the same issue, everything checks out, guessing the regulator, still have old alternator, hate to spend a bunch of money and not have it work and not worth spending $150 on rebuild when you can get a 90 amp for less.
