Is my stator bad? 95zx7l
Some strange stuff is happening with my bike. 1st problem, Sometimes it cranks from the ignition switch. Other times I have to jump the solenoid to crank. Next problem it will only start once or twice, after that the battery is drained. So is it my stator? The brushes, or the r/r?
Here is what I have done to test. Slapped a battery at 13.3 volts in there tonight. Tested it at idle. 12.7dc . Rev to 5k I got 12.91dc.
After tested at idle again 12.5dc, rev to 5k I got 12.83dc. It never spiked past those readings. Tested at idle again, 12.4dc. So ok, now I see that it seems to be trying? But not working. So I pulled the plug from the generator to the harness. Had some trouble as harness side was melted a bit. I thought there were supposed to be 3-4 prongs but there were only 2, is this right? 95 zx7l. Anyway tested continuity, 1 prong reads zero. 1 prong reads 1. something.
So, is the stator bad? Is it the R/R, or is it the brushes considering when I revved it seems to ttry weakly to give my battery some juice.
Please help me out fellas, I have been down for 2 weeks. No ride to work and no money to take to mechanic right now.
