ELECTRICAL Charging System Testing Flow Chart Whenever charging system problems are suspected, proceed with the following
Yellow wires from the regulatorrectifierUsing multitester, perform an Alternator Output testSee test procedure on Page 10.24Does
output meet specification? Check for owner modification, and discuss operating habitsThe battery will continually discharge
if operated below the "Break Even" RPMContinued problems would call for battery inspection Inspect the wiring harness between
the panel and the stator for damageIf no damage is found, remove the recoil and flywheelInspect the flywheel magnets, stator
coils and stator wires for damageRepair or replace any damaged components Meter Setting: DC Volts Reconnect the alternator
wiresMeasure between the Red and Black terminals with the harness disconnectedBattery voltage must be present on harness
side of voltage regulatorIs voltage present? Yes If all of the previous tests indicate good condition, but the charging voltage
does not rise above battery voltage at the connector or wire harness, replace the voltage regulator Check battery and battery
