Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, if fuel supply/delivery has been ruled out, then the other possibility would be electrical/ignition.
Proposed further checks (if have not been done) on the possibility of over/under-voltage, regulator/rectifier and/or stator issue. With a volt/multi-meter, determine the battery voltage when:
Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
I understand Cris and no prob.
Appreciate the post back and would look forward to an update when able.
Copy that Chris; Wednesday, Thursday or when convenient your end.
Hi again Chris and appreciate the post back.
Offhand, it would appear that the readings are acceptable except when revved. I was expecting the voltage go higher up to 14.5V
Consider having the battery externally charged and then LOAD TESTed (even if new and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a suspect).
Locate, check and clean the regulator harness connector.
Re-test the battery voltage when engine is revved.
To my recollection Chris, left side in most versions. Follow trace the yellow or white wires from the stator. Almost always, it would look like the item # ***** as shown HERE.
The battery if fully charged normally would have shown around 12.6V and when under load ideally would be around/~11V. In the Polaris, it should show ~14.5 when charging; i.e. engine RPM something like 2,000 or higher.
The 3 wires from the stator produces AC voltage something like 30-40 ACV with the engine idling and should go higher when engine is revved; 50~60ACV.
These 3 wires feed the rectifier/regulator that then produces the charging DCV for the battery.
Suggest to test first the "...3 wires from the stator produces AC voltage something like 30-40 ACV with the engine idling and should go higher when engine is revved; 50~60ACV..." If the voltage read are as these; then yes, swap the rectifier/regulator combo.
On the otherhand, if the voltages are lower than expected (or no significant increase in ACV) when revved, then the primary suspect would be the stator coils and not the rectifier/regulator.
Reading the ACV would be between any pairing of the 3-wires; i.e. yellow1-to-yellow2 then yellow1-to-yellow3 and finally yellow2-to-yellow3
Appreciate the post back Chris and an update when able.
With 0.0 ACV with any pairing of the 3-yellow wires engine idling/revved, then the stator coils would most likely be faulty. It would be similar to the component shown HERE.
Please confirm; measure the Ω resistance of each stator coil again with the 3 possible pairings with the engine off.
The "...0.6, 0.7, and 0.6..." readings using the 200 scale are as expected but if for some reason, "...no voltage was detected..." with any pairing of the 3-yellow wires engine idling/revved, then the stator would require close visual inspection as it still is the most likely suspect.
