Being new to the ST and Triumphs in general, I'm following this thread so that I can learn about my bike through other's experience & knowledge.
A search for "rectifier" in the title of this forum reveals that it must be a common issue w/these bikes. I'm a bit concerned that my bike may have the same affliction. It's been starting fine, but a few days ago I noticed that it was turning over slowly. I put the battery on a charge and was surprised to find the battery to be in good health with a decent charge.
So as not to sidetrack this thread by turning it into rectifier dialog, out of the 2 pages of "rectifier" threads, which one do you suggest I go to to learn more about the rectifier & sprag clutch issue? The one with the most traffic appears to be this
but that seems to be more for those who have identified an issue & are looking at a conversion/upgrade. Is there a better thread that discusses the issue & educates those of us who are newbies?
