GV250 Wiring Mod
« on: February 28, 2017, 07:36:38 AM »

Hi Plantpot, that mod is really aimed at the 650 bikes. The wire between the rectifier and battery is really too thin for the task.  This causes a voltage drop between the power that comes out of the rectifier and what the battery actually gets.  This has the knock on effect of not supplying enough power to the cdi and a weaker than intended spark being produced at the plug, thus causing running issues. It also plays mayhem with the ecu on new models.

Look in the 650 section and you will soon find a post about it.

I have done this to my 650 and it worked a treat, however, I'm not sure it was ever an issue on the 125 and 250 models.

It probably wouldn't hurt to do it, but you may not notice any improvement.

I was thinking about this same mod the oter day. My thoughts were that the harness were built by the same people using the same cheap wires.  If anything it will take some of the load out of the main harness. 
If it works great. If not, u spent $5 and 30 min on it.

Im all the 250's i sold i had one with a charging issue. That was the rect.

Not sure what to think on this one.

A 250 bike will use no less current than a 650. They're the same.

They use the same shitty wiring, as Albert said. They use the same shitty reg/rec. They both run a headlight and coils. The only difference is that the 650 has a cooling fan.

I would think that they should both be equally effected, but the numbers certainly don't suggest that the 250s have anywhere near as many problems as the 650s.

In summary; do it anyway.
