Strange electrics-tt600

Having covered 50 or so miles - motorway speeds - pulled up for 15
mins got back on went to start up battery flat, got a jump start
went to pull away conked out, RAC came out charged battery for
10mins got me home, charged up over night and left for a week,
checked the battery still had full charge, started up didn't drop a volt
put lights on went down a volt, turned lights off went up a volt
but have not ridden due to me thinking that i prob need a new alternator my mate reckons as it was such a hot day aswell that it
this could have something to do with it?

Most likely failed stator or R/R
See http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-trip...r-upgrade.html for diagnostic quide to determine which

Lots of threads in this forum, which tells you something about the prevalence on the TT600 model!

Singing the Black Stator Blues

BikerBoy1,
Welcome to the wonderful world of Triumph electrical generation! I just got off the phone with Rick's Motorsports Electrics ordering a new Stator (#3 since 2008).
Has anyone heard of a way to slow down the rate of destruction of these stators? I've upgraded to a MOSFET R/R and increased the gauge of most of the charging circuit wiring, which was a wonderful improvement, but I still incinerated another stator! AARGH!
BombFactory or DEcosse, or anyone else, What causes these to burn up and how can we slow the rate of deterioration?

The MOSFET R/R will only help the reliability of the component it replaces, the R/R itself - will do nothing for the stator as is still a Shunt device.
A series Regulator (like Compufire) will have less load on the stator and should (theoretically) improve its reliability.

Thanks DEcosse,
I think I'll keep trying to decrease the resistance in the harness. I'll upgrade the stator leads and the downstream wiring which I have not yet addressed.

How will you decrease the resistance in the harness? Will you have to take a look at each connection and then the wire leading back. Will you take it all a part? If you do would you post some pictures of your progress
