    Hey, just swapped out a bad stator on my 2008 900 Custom. Three coils on it were fried chicken. I've gone through the tests in the 900 stator thread, and after installing the new stator I get no short to ground, meter reads infinite on all three white wires at the reg/rec harness connection, so I think I'm good there. Meter is a Craftsman auto ranging multimeter 82139.

    I tested the reg/rec, got these readings.

    Black probe to black wire: red probe to w1, w2, w3 = infinite

    Red probe to black wire: black probe to w1, w2, w3 = 5.37, 5.44, 5.39 m/ohms

    Red probe to red wire: black probe to w1, w2, w3 = infinite

    Black probe to red wire: red probe to w1, w2, w3 = 5.23, 5.32, 5.37 m/ohms.

    Just wanting to make double sure my reg/rec is good to go before I start up the bike. If you can let me know if these numbers are good. Thanks for all your knowledge here on the forums!

    Kind sir, if you have time, could you take a look at my thread in the 1700 section titled pulley noise or something else.
    I would greatly value your thoughts on this problem.

    Can you please help me ? I have a 99 Vulcan 750 that I put a new starter clutch in last fall. The bike has been sitting so the battery was dead. I went and installed a new battery and tested it with my volt meter and it has 12.8 volts . When I turn on the ignition , I have no headlight and when I press the start button my voltage at the starter is 4.0 volts . All I get is the dreadful click. I going crazy here.

    Sfair,

    I followed your instructions in the above thread and all resistances were 0 and voltages were correct except for green/black which had 0 volts instead of 12. I have not replaced the speed sensor or speedometer, but the speedo is not registering any speed. Is the speed sensor the culprit? Appreciate any help you can offer with this.

    Your knowledge is quite impressive!
    I'm new to this forum, and I'm still trying to figure out how it all works. However, I was curious if you could tell me the symptoms of a bad Ignitor?

    I am thinking for I have to get the starter to crank. Then try to start it and get it to idle. If I am able to do that--then check the plug and the wire.
    Your knowledge and advice is legendary. So, I turn to you for advice. Please understand I have no garage and no shed. Each week I have 2 possible days to work on this and only if it does not rain either day.
    Thanks in advance for your efforts.
    Bob
