The dealer should be able to order it for sure.

There might be some local junk yards for bikes.

Further, you might be able to just duplicate the harness. Alot of times they are just some spade connectors. Make your own.

Yeah the only to consider is that they will not vibrate off due to a lack of the harness locking/clip piece. Further, the ability to make contact where they are suppose to and not contact where they aren't (usually each other).

and my problems continue...

well after making my own harness to my new regulator and reassembling my bike...lo and behold no power!!!! so i spend six hours tearing into my cycle(remove gas tank and all fairings) which wasnt easy cuz after my fairng fell off last week i decieded to loctite all my new fairing bolts...good idea gone bad! so i rewire my new regulator (again) and follow the wires all the way to the stator...when i find a burnt fuse in my wire box...i replaced a voila i have power...now to the fun stuff. i let it run and idle about ten minutes..all is good so i reassemble...then the faithful test run guess what my regulator smoked about six miles from home...two hours later we are safe and home...please help i am lossing my mind and NEED to ride soon

Well... if there was a short it could burn the wiring near the regulator and blow a fuse. I'm not sure what test is required on your stator. It generally requires you to pull the wires coming from the stator (need to track them down) and check the voltage and ohms off it. Remember, the wiring comes off the stator and should go straight to the VR.

First, make sure your VR is properly grounded.

Now get into the techy techy... I don't have a service manual for your bike so bare with me...you will also need a multi-meter that can do ac/dc and ohms.

There are 2 parts to a stator. The stator winding and the rotor. Sense we don't know if the bike is charging cause it keeps shorting out... lets assume its not.

Check the the ohms at the stator plug. Once the wire is unplugged place the 2 meter leads into the 2 terminals. Note the resistance. Shouldn't read much .2-.3 (again these are big dog numbers).

If the resistance is good, check the winding.. put 1 terminal into the stator plug and the other to ground (frame or battery). It should read open circuit 9infinite resistance). If it does... the rotor is OK.

To check the rotor. Set the meter to AC. Put the 2 terminals into the 2 wires again. Start the bike. The voltage will vary but should read about 20 volts and increase with RPMs. It can read up to 100 volts... be carefull... you can get shocked!

That is how you check your stator with the bike off.

You could check this "new" VR by checking the voltage on it, with both meter leads to both wires (opposite of the ones you just checked) on the VR wiring. Depending on the style of the VR for your bike it should either read no DC voltage (series) or close to the battery voltage (shunt)(12 volts).

With the series style VR, if you use the positive lead to one VR wire and the other to a ground it should read about half the battery voltage and with both leads in the VR wiring.. it should read no voltage.

You can also check to make sure it is regulating correctly. Should give you about 14.9 volts at the battery with the motor running and up on some RPMs.

Now if you have all good measurements... then the VR is good. Its just hard for me to tell you which one you have..cause I don't know. Further, I'm no pro at this electrical stuff. I hate it.

Understand that beyond the fuses, wires, and battery. There are 3 parts to the charging system. The stator windings, rotor, and the VR.

I honestly think its more of a wiring problem for you.... due to your crash. I would look into broke or chaffed wires and/or harnesses.

am going to see if wallymart has a multimeter in a few...thanks for the help. i have checked the entire wire path from the vr to the stator had the entire assembly apart and on a bench this afternoon. so i at least now the wires are ok...however i stopped short of pulling the stator cover to check the inside i would also like to add the "new" vr is no longer with us my brake down was a smoky episode after coming to a stop i pull my side panel and the fuc?!ng thing was damn near on fire




if it wasn't for bad luck i would have no luck at all

It could even have just been a bad VR. You got it used on fleabay didn't you?

When my VR went bad on the chop... it was smokin, popin, crackling, and in general scaring me!

Carefully inspect the wires before putting them back on. Check especially around the connectors where the wire could come loose from the connector.

Yeah but one, you won't find it at wallymart and you won't like the price. A Fluke brand meter!

well my testing went as follows...book say resistance at stator.01 to 1.0...my findings from 0.0 at two locations to 5.00 at the other guess this means it is bad...everything else checked out fine

So you have a service manual for the bike? Read thru the charging system section carefully. Be sure to double check my post against it and where it says to take your readings from.
