How do i identify the stator and the rectifier side of the harness?
there are four wires in the harness, three have a white wrapping and one red wire.
Also how do i release the stator harness? i see a release on the plug but i dont know how to release it?
the stator checks bad. not sure how to test the rectifier. It doesn't make sense to me that you can check the rectifier by checking the wires in the harness when the rectifier is not in the circuit. What am I missing?
I pulled the rectifier out and checked it like you specified. With the red lead on the red wire, I get a reading about 230 or so for each of the other connections. But when I check with the black probe on the red wire, I do get a reading on each of the other 3 connections - about 210 on each. (You said I should NOT get one, right? ) That means I have a bad rectifier, correct?
If that's the case, where would you recommend getting a new one? Is there somewhere safe online to buy or should I get from my local yamaha dealer?
