Sorry to hear about the accident, Charlie. I am glad to hear that you emerged with relatively minor injuries. For sure it could have been alot worse.
take care

My memory is short but as I recall the new ones go to metal not in oil.

Yes the new one is a metal thermistor, bumped against a metal threaded tip (even if the housing is plastic it is still a metal tip). Screwed into the aluminum head.

AC charge power is over 50 V, rotor is very clean

The stator voltage is not an indication of the stator CURRENT. Although it usually means things are good, it doesn't always mean that they are.

Measure the stator voltage while connected and it should be charging. If the stator AC is still close to 50V, then the regulator is not turning on for some reason. If the voltage is closed to say 15V AC, then it should be on and sending out current to the battery, but maybe there is not enough current.

Another thing you can do is measure the stator current. If you don't have a large enough ammeter, it is easy to just put a piece of wire in as a shunt. As in, short out the stator with a one foot piece of 18 awg or so wire. Measure the AC voltage drop across that piece of wire. Look up the resistance for that piece of wire and you have the current.

They were built to tour just at a slower speed. 74í ElDo but close enough. It just takes longer. I still forget I cant makeup time like I do on the Norge.

i want to store my photos online

Got it on the schedule, hopefully we'll be seeing you all there.
Just saw this today, hope all works out for you and glad to hear your injuries are not too serious. Take it easy, hopefully the brick can be repaired.

Wouldn't pulling the fuse be a good first test before molesting any hardware?

And itís easily reversible :thumb:

Wow!  Wonderful feedback!  And of course, differing opinions (thankfully it's not an oil thread)! Thanks guys (girls?)!

Since I'm my own mechanic, I trust him!   :grin:
