Cb 500sy elec woes

Post by wornsprokets on Sun 15 Apr 2018, 7:01 pm

The cb 500sy has been layed up over two months now, problems  started with a back firing, then bike went completely dead when head lights... on completely flatting battery... so new battery in and power tested with bike running at 12.8v and no more even at 5k rpm... so checked r&r and its readings are fine with multimeter... so changed stator with second hand one... and stil 12.8v!... put a second r&r in from my cb500v.... and went to 13.2v.....also cleaned connectors in loom and earth.... connection
