    You're correct that I'm a non-drinker, but @Andych is correct that the bike is Chris's. I haven't had a bike on the road in months, and haven't bought one a longer time! Withdrawals have kicked in at times! I tried to buy a couple, but chose not to buy in the end - feels like a bikes anonymous testimony.

    This weekend I decided I wouldn't work on a bike, been staring at bikes all week, so I needed a break. But I did end up fixing a mate's scooter - got to fit a tube tomorrow, though.

    Installed a new lithium battery on my Daytona and went for a spin. Led indicator does 4 flashes; battery level below 13.1v

    After all the trouble and headache with burnt stators and knackered r/r units I thought charging was fixed. Well mad.

    Get home and plan out all tests I need to do. Ugh. Prob should check a few fuses first and yup turns out I blew one changing the battery

    A useful tip I learned in my studies for testing stators.

    Along with the usual resistance and AC voltage output checks, an insulation check will reveal a problem when it otherwise tests OK.

    What you do is use a battery, a headlight globe, and a meter in series with the stator and test for insulation breaks as normal, between phases and from phases to earth. If the globe lights up you have a short.

    This is a good test because most meters will only apply about 1.5-3 volts and hardly any current, using a battery and globe means it will pull a few amps and light up the globe if there is a short. The globe is there as an indicator, and so you don't up a full battery's worth of amps through your electrical system if there is a short.

    Well I got married and bought a brand new bike. Things change!

    Today I was working on an XT600E with a misfiring problem. After overhauling the YDIS carb and replacing the inlet manifolds it ran worse. As the miss was on throttle open and not overrun I suspected an electrical problem. My boss suspected a problem with my carb work. I was right :) 3x broken wires to the TCI.
