Once again I have been plagued with Lucas like electrical failures, and my Hyosung ate the stator.
So I purchased a new one (another nightmare with my bank that I don't want to get into occurred during the purchase) from the good folks at Power & Play Warehouse in Pompano Beach after they tested the system.
Today I had it installed and while the stator was bad (which I verified by visually inspecting the melted coils) it did not fix the problem.
Oddly enough the parts Guy was very sympathetic to my plight,that must be because he had to push start his own Hyosung that very morning for the same problem I was having,and Our old Buddy Isarod just so happened to show up with, you guessed it the exact same charging probelmo...
Now even with the new parts we had a problem with the charging system, despite changing the stator and the voltage regulator, and here is how it showed itself. At idle the volts are fine if a bit low 13 to be precise, once you rolled on the throttle they dropped down into the no charge zone of 11.2. Not good, so The Tech Edsel (remember that name folks because he has solved the riddle) started checking wires and found that a wire between the battery and the Voltage regulator had issues. The issue was that one the VR end the voltage was fine and at the battery it was not.
My guess was that for what ever reason this wire builds up resistance in it, and with that higher resistance comes the failure of the stators and eventually the VR, because the charging system senses a low voltage it cannot correct.
Yes all those years as an Avionics man in the United States Marine Corps didn't go to waste.
And from there the fix was brutally simple and showed an immediate and remarkable improvement, The fix was to sister in a new wire from the Voltage Regulator to the Battery by cutting the wire at the VR and slicing the new wire in and then attaching it to the top of the battery positive post.
The volts were 13.5 at idle and 14+ through the rpms as they should be.
Personally I don't know why the US bikes have this issue but I will venture a guess, our headlights are on all the time and it is my belief that this particular wire breaks down over time from the added strain of supplying the proper voltage to the battery causing the stator and the VR failures, so many of us have experienced in the past.
After mine was repaired, Isarod got his fixed as well in under 20 minutes since his stator and VR had not yet melted down with the same results.
Anyway I like to salute Jason and Edsel for solving One of the great mysteries of our bikes.
