Regulator/Rectifier Motorbike testing, (blown or not? ).mp4

Having blown fuses problem with my bike, also sparking when i attach the power cables. i think this regulator rectifier is the problem! but as im not an electrical engineer i cant find a way to test it. after some research i thin i found a way to test it. but would like it if someone more knowledgeable knows:)

    Darius your stator is probally bad if you have a good battery and a new regulator. Since your bike has a 3 stage charging system and seems you have eliminated the other two.

    might be a bad earth, attach a cable to the black side of the battery and connect it up and down the earth bolts to see if you get a better earth?

    hey everyone , ive got a honda cbr 600f3 … ive installed a new bat and regulator recently . at the momant its got a prob where it just sudenly stops charching and the the indicators takes a long time to light and them sometimes starts to charge again or bat goes flat … so it seems like a loose conection somewhere but cant find one ! ive checked the bat , alt , for loose conect etc but cant find no prob … any idea's ? help anyone ?

    if it conducts this way and not the other this diode passes. Repete the test for b1 to AC2 and AC3 they should all 3 have the same conducting non conducting characteristics. Diodes that short internally and conduct in both directions will cause your battery to overcharge and diodes that burn open internally will not allow your battery to get a proper charge. Keep in mind a bad stator will also prevent your battery from charging.

    OK the one lead by it's self provides a rectified and regulated charge to the battery, lets call it b1, the other 3 leads cary the AC voltage to the rectifier/regulator from the stator we will call them AC1, AC2, and AC3. Now to rectify the AC voltage we use rectifier diodes, these diodes conduct in one direction and not in the other direction. Place the red lead to b1 and the black lead to AC1 if no conduction then reverse the leads, put the black lead to b1 and red one to AC1

    Yes he DID the same test twice at about 1min 47 seconds he said if we change it but he didnt change it he put the red lead right back where it was. Rectifier diodes only conduct in one direction and not in the other. As far as changing the current goes there is no current flowing because the thing isnt hooked up. He reversed the test leads from the meter, that is part of the test but it is quite obvious he had no clue why or what to expect. I would not have this guy working on my motorcycle.

    he did NOT do the same test twice. if you look closely you see he uses the black to check, then switches it and uses the red to check. He even says "now change the current."

    yo busco el regulador de voltage de un 440 cannondale cannibal 2002 para ver cuanto me sale ya que mi 4wheeler no tiene corriente para el spark.y el switch de prender el de la llave y el cable de on off de botton.

    to marc15yo the test you did is a diode chek of the rectifier and you had the corect reading when he said that the one with the lowest reading was good and the other 2 where bad he was wrong so probably your problem is your stator!!!

    Can you help me out, I just did the test he said in the video, all 3 stator prong things were at like 480, i did the ohms thing and none showed anything.

    And here's the worst part, I have an 02 R6 and when following the wiring diagram the positive wire to the rectifier (red) should be on the top right, while the negative wire (black) should be on the top left. HOWEVER when i do this setup everytime i connect the battery i blow the main fuse and sparks. When i swap them no sparks but no charge

    thanks,, i wish i hadnt taken off my stator cover first.

    thats why your bike will always blow fuses and it sparks when you attach cables to it…… To fix the problem is to rewire the red to line up with the red on the little connections. or return and find the proper rectifer… one year difference on the bike model Will change the rectifer's set up…

    Here we go……. your Rectifier is Not Blown…. if it was then the fuses would not pop… the reason for that is simple…… On your bike pay close attention to the power (red) wire. that SHOULD connect to your rectifier's red wire. but if you notice its not….. the wires ARE suppost to match color coded… even when you buy a replacement part… some how the red wire is connecting to the ground wire when you attach the rectifier to the bike…..

    Yes it was completely blown so had to replace. I cheers
