    14 volts on my 2000 XP

    I have a 2000 XP that is putting 14 volts to the battery while it is running. I think the rectifier is in the MPEM. Can anyone verify this?

    thanks!

    13.8 to 14.6 is about the typical range with a healthy, fully-charged battery.

    This battery is new, the stator is new. I am trying to figure out what is going on with my mid range miss. It starts to cough and sputter at about 6000.

    Have you cleaned your raves? Carbs? sounds like it's probably going LEAN... look at your apark plugs. If you are running it lean it WILL blow up SOON if you don't fix it. First thing to check is the fuel water separator bowl.

    Try a set of known working plugs as this is the first step.

    New plugs, and stock set up on carbs. Highs are out 0 and lows are out 1.5 turns.

    What should I look for in the seperator? Do you think I have water in there causing a lean condition? I did just replace my reed valves with some I had. I am going to get a new set to make sure I am good.

    Reed valves will cause idle problems FIRST. The reason i said to look at the plugs is to check for a lean run condition, the plugs need to be chocolate or darker or you are going to damage the motor (pistons and cylinder walls) very FAST.

    As far as the separator goes i always look for dirt and trash. Water will cause a NO run situation. If the basket is dirty in the separator then most likely the screens in the carbs are full of dirt as well.

    I agree with you on the plugs. The old set looked a bit dark. (changed them out about a week ago) I will check them again. I may have a issue that I cant see with the reeds. I inspected both sets and replaced one. The other one I left on looked good. I will get those new ones and try it again.

    Plugs look great to me. No junk in the water separator. Going to pull the carbs and look at the reeds. Ordered a new set to install. I think I may have a issue that I just cant see. The one I did not replace may be wore out. I also did a trailer test with my multimeter and I ran to about 14.5 volts and then leveled off. I had 12.7 before I started it. (new battery)

    This miss can be as simple as a bad set of plugs that wont take higher revs ,swap to verify with a known good set as I had a whole new box full once that played up.It can be the plug leads breaking down at the plug cap,unscrew the plug boot and cut the wires back 10 mm and re screw the plug boot on.
    If its a high speed miss it wont be the carbs or reeds as it is an electrical issue.
