Yet another R6 with a charging system issue
To start off, I sold an 07 R6r and got a 2008 with 4,500 miles. This bike sat in a garage for 4 years without being turned on. Last time it was used, it ran fine, never had an issue(used to be my brother’s bike). Needed fresh fluids and a battery which I’ve done already.
Bike ran good around the neighborhood till I did a 20 minute ride on the fwy. Getting home, it turned off on me...check engine light came on along with code 46.
I’ve done ALOT of research on multiple forums/YouTube, even went to a motorcycle shop to get a second opinion. Going through all the testing of the stator and rectifier, they come back with positive tests, including the new battery, BUT the charging system still doesn’t read when doing the multimeter to battery,5k rpm test. Of course the shop said to replace the whole charging system. I call bs.
Now my question to you guys...what am I missing? All connectors look brand new with no signs of overheating wires. Am I over looking something?
Btw, I’m not a noob trying to yank your chains. I’ve been a member since 08, but had to make a new profile due to sign in problems. Thank you guys in advance!!
