I know this issue has been beaten to death but i need some clarification on my bike symptoms.
Several weeks ago the bike died, new battery and would barley crank over. Bump started it and went for a rip to charge the battery. Its been fine for a few weeks now. This week the bike is turning over very slowly on every start barley catches and fires. Today a rough idle has surfaced and the headlight flickers slightly with the rhythm of the idle. Obviously theres a charging issue and i figure the rough idle is maybe the coils not getting enough juice to fire properly.
I ordered a used rectifier from brad at the chopshop which should be here tomorrow. Hopefully this cures the problem. I noticed after coming back from town this weekend that the rectifier was super hot. Like i touched it and it burned my finger instantly. Should it be this hot? Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.
