I have a 2007 DL 1000 V-Strom:
I followed the following process while checking the stator:
- Put multimeter to VAC
- Tested the three phases of the stator connector plugged into a new regulator
1 > 2
2 > 3
3 > 1
When revving the engine, the VAC coming through climbs to only about 11.3volts (!?!) The VAC coming in at idle is 10.83volts. I am pretty sure I have a bad stator. Please let me know the following:
Am I performing the correct test or should I be looking for a different issue (given the symptoms)?
Am I doing the stator test correctly?
Battery does not recharge
Tasks done to date:
Tested no-load stator (link)
Removed the stator cover and discovered that the permanent magnets have broken loose from the rotor (so new rotor on order)
Based on the results of the test, and inspection of the stator I think the test has been validated as the correct procedure.
