testing stator and regulator/rectifier - July 10, 2009, 08:34 AM

So tomorrow is my day off and finally going to get around to getting a voltage meter and trouble shooting this melting wire (wires from the stator) issue I am having. Can anybody tell me in noob terms on how to test the regulator? I read up on the stator test on kawi forums so i do not think I will have a problem there. Just could not find anything on testing the regulator.

could the wire simply be melting because it's on or too close to something that gets hot?

through my experience, wires burn because:

they are hooked up backwards then power is provide and BAM (pretty cool to watch though )
they are too close or resting on something hot
too much current (could be a faulty relay or fuse or something)
a short / damaged wire
