haven’t been about for a while.
Putting the VF back together after a minor road prang and my electrical problem has persisted.
Everything is fine until I get engine heat soak, when the output voltage of the charging system, drops to well below 13V, and is closer to 12.
This pretty much killed a battery in about 8 months of commuting, where the headlight is in use constantly and the fan kicks in and out a lot.
I’m suspecting the stator is breaking down, as often happened on Hondas of the era, and was certainly the case in 1992 on my NS-125R ( I know, a stink wheels, but the principles are the same).
Replacement bits seem to be readily available and cheap, but has anyone done this before?
Anything to watch out for? Is this the configuration where the stator ring is bonded to the inside of the gene cover?
I’ve not been in there in detail so I don’t know.
Any and all info greatly appreciated received.
