    bike is alive

    hey all
    got nike back today, another new battery on, dealer says all seems ok, but i just want to do some testing of my own.
    how do i test the starter solenoid
    how do i test the rectifier
    how do ites the generator
    (04 Factory)
    as i'm convinced it still driains slightly and i want to satisfy my worries before i bugger up my sprag clutch

    cheers guys

    anyone know of where to get a better starter solenoid for an 04 rsv factory (other models might have better solenoid)
    same for other parts if possible

    Checking the stator

    Disconnect the brown connector, between pins 1-2, 1-3 and 2-3 it must read >60 volts AC @ 4,000 RPM

    yes disconnect stator wire from rectifier. do it before starting if i were you and reconnect when bike is off again. don't want to spike anything.

    You can order them through any motorbike shop agreat1. I got mine from a local place, arrived the following day. Either that or give your local Yamaha dealer a call squire

    checked the stator relay and all above 60v so looking good there
    i've swapped acumen for an optimate, last night and this morning all was good
    bled the back brake and carried out your test on the relay. all done ok, reconnected optimate, popped back in shed,optimate showing red light for not holding charge or short, disconnected and reconnected, will monitor and update you.
    new starter relay coming on tuesday.
    wonder if it is the stator relay, no signs of corrosion or melting, but could be i suppose

    You must be (slightly relieved). I don't think my wallet could handle a sprag clutch at the moment.

    connect the optimate to the bike with it off at the mains and then switch mains on after.

    Good point Sabbath, Optimates need to be switched off at the mains before reconnecting to the bike to reset the charging proceedure. If you simply unplug the optimate from the bike and then reconnect it later without switching the optimate off at the mains plug, it won't charge and condition the battery and a red light will normally appear.
