Thanks for proving my point. He's a new rider and should be sent the right message, at least to start out with. Congrats on 50K miles, welcome to the club, you'll die just the same if you crash though.

And it's an 03 Aprilia Tuono with an engine swap from an 07 and ohlins/carbon all around, and a Daytona 675. My leather track suit is MotoGP. I prefer AGV or Suomy on my face. Have fun going "mad dorifto" in your neighborhood. You aren't even scared of wrecking, that's so bad-***!

I guess always wearing my G-suit, Survival Vest, and helmet when I fly the T-6B makes me gay too?

Your helmet is what saves your life. The leathers are for rash. Normally the rash is not going to kill you. Just the list of bikes you have tells me your a snobby *****. Its always guys who don't have superior control of their bikes that dish out **** on the rest. Show me a picture of you doing a stoppie/rolling burnout and I'll change all my posts into this thread to "tasty danish is correct, he is the man". Until then stfu, your just a scared little freeway commuter.

You're right, I am. That rides every single day, almost without exception, and has a track habit. And that has gone down at 100MPH twice, once on the track and once on the street, and jumped right up and finished the race or rode home, respectively. And once I went down at 35mph and could hardly move from the huge raw hole in my side for 2 weeks. I pick gear.

I don't know if that's just clever picture taking, but that looks really clean. Not what I had envisioned from your description.

The pictures doesn't show the scratches, but you can't even see them from a few feet away anyways. It was repainted with a spray guy and stuff, isn't perfect, but still looks great. Not a rattle can job at all. I spent the whole day washing, polishing, and waxing it today. Man does that make a difference. Other than that, it's great. I threw a new battery in to see if the problem continued, and it's gone. I think I just got a great bike for $700 with jacket and gloves. Only time will tell.

If it's a bad stator, the battery will only cure the problem temporarily. My '85 holds the battery's charge, but doesn't add to it. Since it can take a while to start with carbs, it'll eventually be too low to start. The two 55w headlights I added don't help.

Check voltage off the three (should be yellow) stator wires. Should be 60 volts. Check the battery at idle, should be 11-13 volts. Check again at 5000rpm. Should be 14-15 volts. This is roughly what I do to check my stator, yours might differ, but try and see what you get.

Edit: stator wires are checked at idle, with one unplugged at a time.

True, but Honda r/r are notoriously reliable. I have a cbr r/r on my bike even. Which is why I gave detailed tests, his charging system should be extremely similar to mine if the r/r is the same.

1.) I LOVE F3s. A fantastic first bike if ever there was one. Respect it, and you will have a long and happy 2 wheel'd career on it. I had an F2 that had 65k miles on it, and was flawlessly reliable.


2.) Just 'some jacket' isn't enough. I don't know what dude gave you with the bike, but I won't ride to the end of the street with an Icon/ Joe Rocket/ etc squid jacket. I'll ride Alpinestars, Dianese, Vanson, etc. If it wasn't made from big, mean German or American cows, and filled up with well designed multi layer armor, its not safe enough. Rash is a miserable thing.

Thurday afternoon, one of my buddies fell off his R1 in only a helmet, and looks like a walking scab. Palm peeled open, asphalt burns everywhere, and a dislocated elbow. He was just minding his own business on the way to lunch and a puddle of oil jumped out from under the Burick in front of him. You do not want this. Wear a jacket, gloves, leather boots, and a lid made in the US, Japan or Europe. Every time you hit the starter button. No other choices.

BTW, about 2 years ago, I high sided myself off of my old DRZ400 supermoto about a mile from where my buddy went down on Thursday. I would have been very dead had I not been wearing gear. Instead, I rode the bike home all bent and sad looking with a scuffed helmet and a wear-through on my favorite Alpinstars glove.

"I don't even touch the starter button until I'm locked in a steel cage. "


"this one time, in band camp, I destroyed my bike, my gear, and put my mind and body through trauma, then road home. lol."

It's a leather cage. You're welcome to fantasize about that.

If I remember right the rectifier can be damaged in a crash due to being in the tail? Curly is right though start diagnosing the problem because it will be back.

And to all of you tools that full leather up to drive around town. lol Its not a bullet prood vest or magical armor. If you get t-boned at 50mph your probably going to die no matter what your wearing. I agree that road rash sucks but so does showing up to work with swamp ***. I should start wearing my roadrace suit, gloves, shoes, balaclava to the grocery store for laughs. Does anyone wear a metal chain suit like for shark diving? Post pics if so. I bet it would breathe better than 2mm thick leather.
