I will replace it but it is likely to break down again if i can not find the source of my trouble. What say you? Battery?, Stator?....
I also have charging problems. It suddenly stopped charging when driving in rain (noticed that the rev counter stopped working since it uses the pulses from the alternator) and i found a melted connector to the regulator/rectifier under the tank.
I fixed that and the rev counter works again but it does not charge the battery.
How did you find out that your regulator was broken?
What did you pay for a new one?
Does anyone have the values to measure the alternator wireings to find out where my problem is?
