Well, not having any luck finding someone to test the regulator. As soon as they hear motorcycle they don't want to do it as they say they don't know how to hook it up.
What you have is a car alternator that mounts a little different and has a drive flange instead of a pulley.

Take it into a shop and let them look at it. They'll have to remove the flange and put on a pulley but from there it's just standard testing.

Thanks guys!
I found a shop that is certified for doing rebuilds and the tech there said no problem testing the regulator. (For Ken Bergen who is "local" it is in North Van)
Well local is relative.
The last time I was North Vancouver was 30 years ago to pickup a lathe.
If I had an alternator to test and the shops 10 minutes from me couldn't/wouldn't test it and the alternatives were NV or Calgary I'd be heading East.:ROFL:

No wonder, dummy. You're suppose to fix them in the kitchen. Get a clue.
I tried that and kept stepping on and breaking parts trying to get to my Cheerios.

Perhaps Cheerios in the living room and bike parts in the kitchen would work.
I'm so confuzzed.:?
