Farkle Purchasing System
Hmm...Puzzling, indeed.Could have been on DC when I checked... was flustered at the time. My main tell is on the dash where my bike voltage meter is. That said 12.4 at rest, and didn't move a bit when the bike started or when up at 5k RPMs.
I had all of the magnets out and tested them against each other, rotating them as needed so they each repelled the one next to it, every other. So when I put the next one in, if I hovered it above the one/s next to it, it would repel.
This is sounding like a bad regulator/rectifier.
Do you have the DL1000 shop manual? I may be repeating myself, but there are diagnostic steps in there that will help figure out the actual problem.
I'm thinking specifically of checking stator output at idle and at 5000 rpm. Make sure your multimeter is in AC mode, unplug the stator from the rest of the wiring harness, and connect your multimeter across any two legs of the stator. It should be putting out at least 75 V AC at 5000 rpm.
If all three legs of the stator are making the correct voltage, that points to a regulator/rectifier problem.
Maybe you already did that, but it's one of the only things I can think of that might help.
