General GS500 Discussion / Re: Not sure if my stator is dying.

OK thanks, I've order a new basic Fluke 101 for 60 bucks, and I'll check the RR with that when it arrives in a few days. Meanwhile I ran my current crap multimeter over the stator pairs again after a long ride today, I was getting about 10 Ohms resistance! WTF I think I'll just ignore that till I see what the Fluke reads.  I checked the AC voltage and each pair was getting 16VAC at idle and 60VAC at 5000, all three were the same so it's prolly the rectifier or some other bad wires. There doesn't appear to be any pinching in the stator wires but then they are in a very harsh environment under the stator cover.

Yes, it's an actual part and I suspect it's in the sump.... grrr I think I'll just take it down and have a look.

What ???? GS has a sump ??? you mean the oil pan ???
That got no pressure. How can there be a bypass there ? what would it be bypassing.
Bypass is if your filter is clogged or your fuel pressure is too high to flow through the filter.
Cool.

Here's my two cent.. when you have the choke open, it cuts off the air flow some. When you are opening the throttle, you're letting the air in again. An when you are opening the throttle the bike is revving and not stalling. that's pointing to me it's actually an idle adjustment issue.

Now you may be saying to yourself now, but when it's warm it idles right where it's suppose to be at! you are correct it is, BUT! The big plastic knob for adjusting the idle, is only adjusting one side of the butterfly valves. so what's happened is, one cylinder is getting the proper amount of fuel/air needed to cold start the engine, and the other is barely functioning [not enough air] SO. by opening up the not-so-obvious idle screw on the OTHER side of the carb, causing the opposing butterfly valve to open slightly too, then closing the big plastic idle adjustment screw the same amount of turns you opened the other not so obvious one, you are in theory balancing the idle adjustment more evenly.

now by in theory I mean, there's other factors that play into idle adjustment such as the pilot jet, and air fuel mixture screw. so if the above adjustment doesn't work THEN you should look into these last two.

It has been a few days since Watcher last replied to J_Walker but I remembered to take a photo today if Watcher thinks it passes as it is actually washing my bike:



Made sure to actually get some suds on there as well.

If people deem this passes, next challenge is something HIGH VIS with your bike. I've seen other bikes with fluro wheels etc could even be a high vis jacket you wear on your bike etc. Pic can be taken anywhere / with anything but no bright colours - has to be in your face safety protection type colouring (doesn't have to be safety colouring but something high visibility).
