  • Fried rectifier

    Went to drive the bike on the weekend and about 25 miles into the ride the cluster lights went out and then about 2 more miles later the whole bike dies on side of road, found it would restart with a jump but was not charging the battery. Disconnected the rectifier connector and they were melted together so now I need a rectifier and connector but looks hard to find? Is it the same as a Yamaha XV1700A Road Star 04-07 connector that is easy to get. Looks identical to me.

        You should check the connector by the battery box, behind the left side cover. I've seen several melted connectors there.
        The main thing to double check is, making sure the connector pins are clean and have a good tight connection.
        Week connections causes the heat, along with overloading the circuit system.

          Test the stator and make sure it is working correctly before replacing all those parts also. Didn't see year modle of your bike but upgrade to newer stator if its toast if its good just stay with OEM There is a post on here about the stators/rectifiers and years compatible
