Re: Charging problems


Here we go, a few pics of the charging system going back together.

One shiny new stator from Electrex World.

Most of the replacement was just the reverse of disassembly. However I had to improvise when it came to locking the engine up so that I could torque the rotor bolt up. That's a pillar jack I'm using!

I put some Loctite on the rotor bolt as well before torquing it up.

Engine all sealed up.

Finally I put the battery back in and fitted the battery strap I found on ebay for £3. It was advertised as a tool strap for a GK76 but that looks to me just like a battery strap for a GK71F! Fits perfectly emoticon

I then put the oil and new filter into the bike and started it up. Ran the multimeter over the charging and the battery and it all appears to be working ok. emoticon

Re: Charging problems


Well done for geting there at the end mate and the pics/description is spot on as I am going to follow this for my 73a. As previously disscussed, my 73a has had an overcharging problem putting 18volt into the battery, ( not good for the battery) I tried the gsx 400 reg/rec I got for free but I am still getting 18 volt at the battery, so I will now try to fit the gen bit I have got off a GSF 400, (again for free) I followed the testing stuff you sent me, but to be honest electrics aint my thing, if its not an obvious fault I am stuffed. Anyway I am going to have a crack at the gen swap so can you tell me if the gen/stat centre nut is left hand thread or right hand as a normal bolt and also what is it torqued up to mate.

Cheers Spenner

Re: Charging problems


It's a normal right hand thread bolt Craig and it's torqued up to 110 - 130nm or 11 - 13kg/m.

Actually, I think all that info is on one of the sheets I sent you?

And yes, it's a real relief to have it sorted again now!

Cheers for the info mate, I have started clearing some space in the garage to tackle the gen swap, just waiting until I can kneel down again.

Re: Charging problems


Hi Mike, I'm afraid manuals for these bikes are like rocking horse poo! There are proper Suzuki, Japanese language versions available on the Japanese Yahoo auction site. I have one of them, and while the instructions are beyond my ability to read, many of the relevant settings and figures are fairly easily deciphered. The diagrams are all useful too.

Difficult to be able to say for certain what may be causing the bike to cut out when hot, but if you already have new signal generators then it's got to be worth fitting them to see if it sorts the problem.

Don't forget a few pictures of progress in the workshop section, it's always good to see a photojournal of jobs.

Re: Charging problems


Ha ha! Zombie thread resurrection! To be fair, although the thread is an old one, Mike only posted his question yesterday.
