Re: electronic regulator problem

my electronic reg problems continue. I contacted Alan Osbourne and had a long chat. He was both very helpful and very entertaining to talk to but he thought it could be a duff unit after I described the issues. Anyway I've been using the mechanical regulator for the past few weeks with no problem bu...

Re: Dynamo looses polarity over night

I have the same issue on my panther m100. I have fitted a flick switch that just gives out a charge from the battery for a split second to make it work. I wonder if it is more of the fact that these electronic regulators need much higher revs to initiate the unit. (Sometimes if I give the bike a han...

Re: Dynamo / Electronic regulator woes

Keith
be interesting if the mechanical regulator works as I have had similar problems with an AO reg. I went back to a mechanical one and it works fine - I cant figure it out unless I bought a duff one.
Good luck

Re: electronic regulator problem

Thanks Simes
I think I will have to resort to that - I appreciate the advice and at least it appears I have not made an error

Re: electronic regulator problem

Simes that sums it up perfectly. Bullets added to the new one to marry up with the existing harness to minimise any intermediate fault. I take it the main body of the unit doesn't need earthing - just the red wire to earth. I bought the unit from Paul Goff via ebay - id have thought it should be oka...

Re: electronic regulator problem

simes with the mechanical reg - slow revs 6.15 up to 7.6 or so at high speed (until it regulates down to about 6.40) With the electronic one attached just around 5.89 running at any speed when revved up, - Battery recovers when the ignition is switched off to about 6.10 but if I went for a ride I'm ...

Re: electronic regulator problem

Dave
Battery is healthy with just over 6 volts showing on a voltmeter. I'm quite sure the problem is elsewhere . I wonder if the ignition light circuit to the red dot ammeter could be the problem (if at all). Might try disconnecting that and giving it another go
thanks for the reply

electronic regulator problem

The mechanical regulator on my square 4 works ok but I decided to go modern and put on a new AO V-REG regulator on I run on 6 v positive earth and the swap over is (should be) simple, however on start up - no power getting through the unit. Ammeter needle is in the middle and the red dot ignition li...

Re: Saddle springs - comfort

Expensive but worth it
I recently rode a pre war Norton inter with those barrel springs - very nice ride and not at all choppy.

Re: partial loss of oil pressure - square 4

You were 100% right Simes! Just took the ball bearing out and cleaned it and kicked the bike over to make oil issue out with any potential obstruction. Replaced the bearing and spring and started her up. 100 PSI on tick over from cold Must have been a bit of muck in the system, or in the oil pipe fe...
