If I get these readings from the stator at 5000rpm:
L1 - L2 = 68V
L1 - L3 = 68V
L2 - L3 = 26V

Wouldn't that be enough for the R/R to convert to 14,7V DC or does it "shut off" if the three inputs aren't the same voltage?
korrekt the R/R works exact as you have it described.
all the three yellow wires must have the same AC Voltage, otherwise the Stator is bustet.
You measured the stator for short circuit all the three wires are OK 0,5 Ohm. So the Alternator has no short circuit.

Maybe the Bike has a long stand time (only 8000 km in 9 years) and the stator has demagnetized.

Just got back from a trip to meet up with some of the Italian Africa Twin Club - I'll pen a RR when I get the time, but a great ride - there's something special riding the Cols in a train of 36 Africa Twins

Andy G - thanks for the inspiration - the LGKS is spectacular.










PS - Squilly - great to see you back on the bike

Second photo is my new favorite.

Envious of both the bike and the ride.

A rare Limited Edition XLV750 on Fleabay USA, harder to find in the US than a AT.

only 400 made

shame....

this one look like its just been stood for an age..

an absolute showroom condition example went for 2500 in the UK last year on Flea bay..
I was very tempted. but as I have the RF I would have just drooled over it these things should be ridden.. shame this one has not been..

it will need a lot more than new tyres... bikes dont fair well in storage, even when its stored well.. and this one does not appear to have been stored or loved..

good Project though and they sound just awesome :-)

its a 1983 bike .. the seller seem to have just cut and pasted the Wiki entry ....

Hello!

Just a quick post to say Hi from a new AT owner. My first big bike, so a bit of time getting used to her size, then off to find some nice riding - that trip in Italy looks fantastic.

P.S. To my mind the front tyre (Conti Escape) looks the wrong way around - can I just flip the wheel over or does it need to be remounted?

Hi!

I biffed my 97 RD07A and need to change a front wheel due to rim+spoke+brake rotor damage, it seems only my hub survived.

I sourced a whole front wheel (hub and all but with worn out rotors) from an 90 RD04, for a great price. It's also a 21x 1.85

Can anyone tell me if the pieces are straight-fit compatible?

Chance to own AT

Of all the twins out there only a few tickle my fancy, and I have the opportunity to buy - a yet unseen - 1987 AT.

The photos of it show it to be clean with very little visible wear. Costa Rica, however can offer may ways to thrash as bike. As I have never owned one of these, I am looking for a bit of advise on what model / year specific issues to look for in survey.

I have glossed through pages on this blog and have gleaned a bit, but with almost 10,000 posts and a very passionate group I hope to receive a bit of sage input.

What I do know, other than the year, is it has 87,000 KM, and is basically stock (OEM suspension, 17" rear, stock exhaust). Hopefully she is a good example of a commuter just waiting to be hopped into her adventurous element

I appreciate the input!
