Brake fluid damage
Just noticed my master cylinder has been leaking (probably for some time as havent driven the bike in a while) and there is a kind of a white streak mark in the fairing panel where the dot 4 has dripped down damaging the paintwork.
Short of bringing it to an expert or buying a new fairing is there any over the counter products that might work?
Sheared Kickstarter shaft
Hi all just wondering if the kick start shaft in the pic can be removed without splitting the crank case .I think there was a small old crack on the shaft as I wasn’t digging it .cheers for any advice in advance.
Stator issue/repair needed
I’ve an issue with the charging system on the gsx 1400.
Bike would struggle to start and most of the time would need to use the booster pack on it.battery was only a year old .
So I recharged the battery ,read 12.7v so all good.
Voltage at idle eventually got to 13v but when I increased the rpm the voltage dropped.
So I tested the rectifier and all diodes tested fine.
Tested the stator winding resistance and all in spec of the Haynes manual.
But when I tested the AC of each winding from the stator at 5krpm , I was only getting 45volts instead of a stated 60v needed in the manual.
Does this explain the crappy charging system and why the volts decrease with increased rpm?
Is there somewhere to rewind these? Preferably in a day or 2?
As above lads, anybody doing frame straightening please. Ta Willie.
