Re: What have you tinkered with today?

A trick I came up with years ago to,"Prime" a Brake Master Cylinder on Motorcycles if empty or the level has been allowed to drop too low.

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

Glad you found the fault.Don't forget to go down the Stator wires and check all the connectors for corrosion.

Re: regulator

The 3 high current wires from the Stator are not polarized e.g they can be connected anyway round but as Bib says stick to the original setup and you can't go wrong.

The two DC wires from the R/R...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

It may well have been corroded connectors that may have brought it down if it has failed :(

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

I disagree Bib.Voltage increases can be incremental and over time.Some components can handle the increased voltage before failing,some can't.It's a good indication if there's fault if caught in time...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

Damn.Ok that's good to know for the future.I've chatted with the ebay guy I'm getting the clocks off and he seems decent :)

As the R/R I've bought is a cheap knock-off I'm wary now so I'm almost...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

I've used Blu-tac and similar Biblio but I can never find it when I need it.Nice thing about a clothes peg is I can leave it clipped to my Soldering iron so it's always around.

Also I always break...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

Absolutely right.As connectors corrode over time and if not halted the surface area of the contacts reduces.The effect is exactly the same as if you say have 1.5mm 20 amp multi wire cable and each...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

There's never a need to have a car running if jumping a Motorcycle and as you've found out it can ruin components on the Motorcycle.If the extra passive power from the larger Car battery won't start...

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

Yeh it should.It's more likely a main power wire/ground.

What state are the actual fuse holder sockets in?

I had a none-starter where the fuse holder looked ok but was open-circuit.

Re: Erratic ignition now no power, no start

Ok.I should have read back.It's the ,"No Power" issue.All you can do is keep looking for continuity breaks like you have said things like that ground wire and main power wires.

Also if not already...

Yeh.I added one of those cheap LED strips to the Number plate top on one of my old Hondas :)

Whilst the OP is working on the back change the Stop/Tail bulbs to LEDS.I always do this on my bikes.
