    Electrical troubleshooting question on 2011 FZS

    So at 85 hours the check engine comes on. Turns out the battery is not getting charged. The rectifier passes all of the ohm checks. I'm only getting about 26 volts AC. I'm suppose to be getting about 75volts. The stator reads .3 ohms per the service manual.

    I'm also reading less then .5 ohms on all three green wires to ground. this can't be right. I'm thinking the stator windings should read open to ground. Service manual doesn't address ground checks. The next question is can the flywheel and stator be inspected without pulling motor?

    Nope motor has to come out. Did the clutch ever go on the ski and shear the teeth?

    you need to remove the rear cover and take the coupling off, mine went,its a motor out and coupling off, you will need the tool and a long 12mm allen socket to get the coupling off, its very tight. chrome plug is l/h thread also.

    There is a possibility that the flywheel bolts have come loose or sheared

    And as said you will need to pull the motor to check

    Yes clutch went and teeth sheared. Fixed that and now charge system down. All three leads check under .5 ohms to engine ground. Put out 26 volts at 2500 rpm vice 75 volts......

    Bits of metal probably damaged the stator
