My alternator is GONE!!
Aloha all, new member here!
Bought an 88 zx1000 about 2 months ago. Been running it really nice (aside from VERY poor gasm ileage, thats for another day, though) until the other day. Battery died out of the blue and was unable to start it. Charged it up, then later that night same thing.
The voltage doesn't go up at all when the bike is started. I haven't tested all the componets (coil brushings, rectifier, etc) of the alternator to pinpoint the problem, but figured it'd be easier to find an alternator than track down one small part.
Anyone have any suggestions where to get one? The only yard on the island doesn't open until Monday, and I'm sure they'll charge alot for one if they have it...
Thought someone here might have a bike they are parting out ?
