My GEN light is intermittent. It will only come on when the key is turned on about 1 out of 5 times. Started the bike today, after the light came on with the ignition, and it was charging ~13.6 V at the battery, so it seems the charging system is capable of working. I'm wondering if the voltage regulator is a likely place that could be causing the intermittent light? I know from reading other threads that the light must come on to "trigger" the charging system at start up. Any other suggestions of where to start looking? Rotor shows ~3.4 Ohms between the slip rings.

The bike is still in project form at this point, but it's getting dangerously close to going in for state inspection.

Thanks, in advance.

Lynn
