2000 tw200 charging problem
Hey folks, need some help with a 2000 TW200, that's not charging bat.
Rectifier checks out good, swapped it with one from friends that I
know to be working... have cleaned EVERY connection twice. It's
internment though chronic event, i.e. for a short time it will charge
at 14.5, drop to to 11.7, go up to 13.7 etc. GURRR. Seems it's a bad
connection. My manual is not color coded to my year. Question ... I
have 3 white wires coming from the Generator [ red wire to battery + .
Diagram shows that the 3 whites are, 1 as a ground and 2 from the
output of the GEN. I show no continuity from any of the 3 to ground?
Nor does my pals bike??? Wazzup with that. Can someone tell me which
of the 3 white connector pins going to the GEN. [through the case] is
the ground wire? AND.. why can't I find the grounded wire with any
meter I use on my bike or friends with continuity?
I haven't had it running and checked for a ground wire, I Will do
that but it seems to be grasping at straws, which is where I'm now at
now. Any suggestions will be most appreciated ... I love my T-dub, this is the first time it's given me a problem Our rainy season is
drawing to a close here in N.Fla. The mud holes in the swamps will
soon be dry. HELP !! I'm wilting on the vine. ;))
