I have a problem charging 1985 ltd

Hi
I know that the subject comes up many times but I'd love to hear your opinion
I noticed that when the motorcycle is hot there is no charge.
In the garage they replaced a battery +regulator but did not help...
I tested the Electric current in the three yellow wires and there are between 5V and 6V
When I touch the adapter in the picture he is boiling!
What is the reason ?
I believe the problem is coming from there, am I wrong?

Thanks

Okay, you can stop re-posting the same thing.

To try and keep trolls and spammers out, your membership to the forum must be approved by a moderator. I am doing that now, and will move this post to the Technical Forum, where it belongs. That way you'll get more help.

Now, if you would please update your profile to include city, state/country and bike info, that will help you too.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Greetingz Israel!

What year/model? Where in the world are you (what is your climent like)? As Dennis said, please update ur profile so we don't have to ask these things. And you need to post a few more times before you can upload pictures. Go over to the test forum or the fun forum and just post some nonsensical stuff.

We're more than happy to help, but please, help us help you!

Looks like you need to do the old (Like most of us have on 1200's) cut the three yellow wires, get rid of the plug, and solder the three wire straight through deal. And while you have the three yellow wires cut you can do the proper test on the stator.

that connector has caused more Honda riders problems, and its really there for hondas assembly convenience

Cut the damaged wire back till you find good, measure out lengths of new wire and braid the wires-
solder and cover in shrink wrap tube you placed on wire before braiding

There is another connector next to the battery in same system- cut it out too
search for how to braid wires, its not a simple twist and shout- ALL the electrical power goes thru that setup!

I am just curious... if the 85 had an ignition system wire connector next to the stator connector, why would it be recommended to cut and solder those wires as well? In this case, it doesn't matter so much as 1984 was the last year that the ignition connector was next to the stator wire connector.

I was speaking in general non-year specific terms, my own experience was from an 86 Shadow- which uses many parts off the Wing including the stator and wiring setup
Honda used that same system on most every 3 and 2 wheeler made in the 80s (possibly earlier) and into the 90s...maybe later
Also found in Honda/Acura cars at least thru 2005 as cabin fan power- which melts and shorts out.

On the older bikes with battery on right side there is a connector there you can eliminate when doing the stator main connector.
Why you ask? because its a part likely to fail,,, and one of the few failures that can leave you stranded
Once soldered in direct- if you ever have a stator failure just cut the wires to remove it.

Sometimes general non-year specific advice may not be what is needed. This might be one of them.

"There is another connector next to the battery in same system- cut it out too

On an 85, there is no other electrical connection next to the battery that can be cut and soldered but the stator, unless of course you are telling the OP to cut the positive lead coming from the battery going to the starter solenoid.

While you have the wires cut, you should perform the stator test to see if things are ok there. You'll find the instructions here;
