    Stator/ charging issues

    Howdy yall! New to the forum and was curious of anyone could shed some light on my charging issues. Im a complete green horn when it comes to electrical work.. i got a 96 tw completly stripped down. including the harness ive been putting back together and ive got basically everything back together to find out the charging system isint functioning properly. Its a newish battery when fully charged it holds at 13.2v and after doing a bit of research i thought the recitifier may have been no good. Ordered and installed a new one and still no power gain at an idle nor at 5k rpm. I get about an hour of riding timw before the lights die out. So the next smoking gun i assume is the stator. I ohm tested the green and white wire coming from the stator which i believe is the pickup and it reads 191 steadily. I then tested the yellow and brown wire together which gave me a reading of 51. I couldnt get a reading from the red wire no matter what configuration i tested. Are these readings in spec? Can someone tell me which wire does what? Why couldnt i get a reading from the red wire? Itd greatly be appreciated!

    Side note. The three white wires all have continuity. At an idle it pushes out 20 vac in two wires and one is showing 12v.

    (Welcome to the board) i have had it off to put a new gasket on. Didnt think to check anything at that point on account of my lack of knowledge of the bike. Looking back i wish i did.

    Check for a pinched wire coming out of the engine - the casing is awkward cos of the magnet, and often goes all over the place - that's the first thing to check

    With the given readings which wire should i look at? Are the readings i stated in the yamaha ball park? Ill remove the stator side now and take a look. Off chance do you what color wire from the startor represents the charging system ? And thank you for the quick response!

    Other than that (and what the manual says for checking stator readings, which is about as much use as a chocolate tea cup), if you have painted the frame, check the earths. Even using Locktite can isolate an earth contact on a component …..

    Check for wire pinch first - otherwise it gets complicated and I'm going to have to look it up ...

    The charging system is on page 211

    The parameters for the test you tried are on page 254

    Without first checking the wires are not pinched, you will never know if the pinch is throwing your reading out ….

    The wires look good physically. I see no cuts or crimps.. i looked at that diagram before but with my lack of electrical knowledge its hard to determine what wires are what color wise as they differ from the diagram to the actual stator.
