Charging System Troubleshooting

To successfully use this chart, it is assumed the user knows the basics of electricity, and understands the general components and functions of the motorcycle charging system in general. This guide is provided purely to help users identify problems with their electrical components. We are not responsible for any damage that may come from using this chart.

Also use a high quality multimeter. These tests assume accurate readings from a good multimeter unit. This chart also assumes your bike has a combined Regulator/Rectifier unit, and will only work as such.
