If measured with the battery and regulator/rectifier you will just get the battery voltage which was decreasing when riding around.

Fixed stator:
Almost short circuit (approx 0,3 ohm) through the stator.
When connected to the battery and regulator/rectifier the voltage is up to around 13,5-14V (about +1-1,5V more than the battery itself.

The hard part was to get the hard "glue" away from the connection points. I used a soldering iron to loosen it up and were very cautious not to damage the wiring isolation. I used PL400 to fasten everything again after clamping and soldering the loose ends.
Hi 950v2

Since you are based in sthlm i assume your swedish is alot better than my english... could you please give me a ring? I live in Vallentuna. noll sju 02- sextioċtta 42 fem2. I need to find a way to take the flyweel off...
