Charging system problems
« on: May 29, 2018, 18:53:42 PM »

I have a 99 vulcan nomad, i am having problems with the charging system.
I get 12.8 at my battery same with it running, don't know how to test rectifier and don't want to buy parts I may not need, was told can be rectifier or stator
Only other thing I can mention is left signal indicator as well as front and rear light blink normal and then quickly intermittently

Your Nomad has dual stators and rectfiers. I do not have a wiring diagram for it. Sorry. I would think that checking each stator/rectifier separately would be the most logical method.
