Been off here for a while, meandering the country side on my ST1100. Lots of adventure there! (http://picasaweb.google.com/cattmando)

Anyhoo, some may recall I was having an electrical problem, no charging. Went thru the book, changed out the regulator to no avail, then the coils. Still no go. Ugh!

While messing about, I unplugged the headlight to take off the front, just getting more access. Started the bike again and...

CHARGE! (and I don't mean General Custer.) Seems the 55/60 W H4 bulb was sucking up all the available amps, none left for the battery. Replaced with a stock 35/35 and all seems well.

So, who has the 'structions for rewinding the generator coils? I need more juice!
