Re: help with headlight pls

according to my meter's manual, less than 120 ohms it will beep. So I would check this from each component to begin ground with the switch closed and it should beep if the the resistance is under 120 ohms? this doesn't seem conclusive. what if my circuit is made to be lower than 120 ohms and this j...

Re: help with headlight pls

Does your meter have a setting for continuity? Continuity and Ohms are not the same. Presuming that you have a setting for continuity, I would start at the headlight plug. Put one lead on a good solid ground (the green wire connecting to the coils is a good one that's close to the light) and put the...

Re: recommendations on a <$120 multimeter?

Usually means your probes are not making good solid contact with what you are testing. What ARE you testing? Something in the headlight circuit?

Re: help with headlight pls

Ohms is not what you should be checking for. You should check for continuity with ground.

Re: Stuck Stator Bolt

Lefty loosey is the way to go. If your rear wheel is still allowing a little play when the rear brake is applied, try inserting something like a wooden shovel handle into the spokes. Turn the rear wheel until the handle is braced against the swingarm.

An air impact wrench is what I always use.

Re: how would you mount this to your bike?

Be wary of installing things that will draw additional power from the already notoriously weak charging system of the CB650.

Re: voltage regulator

Is your bike charging (At least right up until it blows the RR)? To test the rotor, take a multimeter and set it to ohms. Put one lead on one slip ring and one on the other. You should get a reading somewhere around 4.5 ohms or so. Test it when it is cool and hot. Sometimes it may test ok when it is...

Re: voltage regulator

How is your rotor? Of the components of the charging system, the stator is the least likely to fail, but a bad rotor will ruin a new regulator/rectifier.

Re: Carb Cleaning -- success

The felt washers are in the holes in the carb bodies where the choke shafts fit.

Re: how to connect my battery charger alligator clips to battery without removing seat?

I'm not endorsing any particular brand, I just included the picture to show a firmly affixed wiring system. If you already have a battery charger of some sort, you can make simple wiring system and plug.

Re: Carb Cleaning -- success

Use caution with the carb bodies. The holes on the bodies where the choke shafts fit have felt "washers" inside them. They will come out fairly easily when the shafts are not in place. Without them, you could have air leaks.
