WR426F Rectifier/Regulator Q's

2001 WR426F with old Baja Designs street-legal kit. The BD kit was in a box with the bike and I installed the kit. All lights/horn work properly with engine off using a fully charged battery.

When I run the throttle up a few thousand rpm, voltage doesn't go up much if at all. Is this indicative of a bad regulator/rectifier.

Bump

We spent all day chasing wiring to make sure I did it right. One regulator/rectifier (R/R) yellow to stator yellow. The other R/R yellow to stator black on harness. R/R red to battery, R/R black to battery. All lights are connected directly to the battery and NOT grounded to the frame anywhere.

Still not getting the regulator/rectifier to charge. Driving me nuts. Ideas???

What voltage are you getting? Idling? Revved up ? turned off ?

with engine revved and lights off -should be around 14 volts -

Check stator with OHM meter for continuity Between the 3 wires
out of stator - unplugged -there should be zero -

BD phone customer service is pretty good -
