You can get creative with a bunch of pipes and a block of wood. dude made a few and turned them into gun buy back, heard he bought himself a sick scar I think. lol

Stator/Rec dead 🤦🏽*♂️

Oh boy, don't get me started on the guns 🙄! Once you get started into the world of building, kiss your money goodbye lol...
Anyways, bike did two trips to work, 15 miles each way, no issues. Then she sat for 4 days. I Took her out yesterday and rode about 50 miles and then it just cut off while I was on the interstate. Coasted to the shoulder, called road side assist and came home to find this 👆👆👆.

S&S Super Sidewinder, we need a stator/rectifier 😩

Oh yeah, battery is at 10.18v currently. I put it on the charger about two hours ago but it wouldn't never even show as connected. I hope it's not fryed, it's brand new

So your bike when parked is shorting out the battery?

Spade, no battery is good. The stator/rectifier is shit. Look at the pic of the connector plug.

when you parked the bike for 4 days was it on a charger?


If not, you had probably were riding it on a battery with charging system not working.
I have done it before.

And if you don't have much electric shit- loads[ bare bone chopper], it may take some time to discharge the battery by just ignition system.
A few stops and starts however would kill it much faster- and then you get stranded at some bar- the engine is not turning any longer.

Evidently the poorly connected plug was arching and fried itself. that is the culprit. It's tough sometimes to force the rectifier plug onto the stator socket all the way- but it must be do ne correctly.

Hopefully the stator is intact- you just change the plug and check it for continuity- with ohm meter with a beep. i'm pretty sure the rectifier is ok.

Typically when battery drops below 10-11 volts, some cells get fried and it may not hold a charge any longer- if shows 12 v, it is phony- it will fail the load test. sometimes it can survive such a discharge and may still work fine... but I would keep more attention on it.

Thanks STEINBVG! So yeah the battery was not on a tender the four days the bike sat.

I'm pretty positive the two rides I did prior to it sitting, was just on the battery and the charging system was already toast.

I did an ohm's test on both components. Test of the stator at the engine case connector = Audible beep from meter and 0.000 ohm's.
Test of the Regulator/Rectifier at the connector = No audible tone and a read of 15.128 ohm's.

I put the battery on the charger and it's back up to 12.58v but yeah, I'm a lil worried I fried the damn thing. I sure hope not.

If the battery is ok , while cranking the voltage should not drop too much on the voltmeter. Also it recovers . The fried battery will start slowing cranking after 1-2 pulses. And will not recover , hold a charge.

Normal battery can keep cranking 10 + times before it drops voltage below necessary for ignition to fire . After that even if the engine seems to turn fast, the ignition will not fire.. time to recharge and try again. I think this feature of the ignition prevents from keeping stupidly cranking- beating the dead horse and killing the battery.

Once your charging components complete, batter6 charged, start the bike with voltmeter on the battery- you should see 13-14 v fluctuating with the rpm. That means it is charging. And you are good. This is the 1t thing to test before any other tests.

Once I built my bikes and fired them up that,s what I always do.

I also do that after a long parking, even if the battery had been on a charger. Cheap simple insurance.

that looks like a home made bolt for a .22, semi auto open bolt or full auto

not at all,
I am a gunsmith/weapons Tech by trade & have worked on military small arms for various company's & government agencys, from my home in New Jersey to The United Kingdom for over 30 years,
from Rolling blocks to .50 Browning's & all in between.
Phillip Luty was a clever fella, but went about it all wrong, & did the legitimate owners no favours whatsoever,
he could have had a good career within the industry, but instead of which, he chose the illegal path by supplying terrorists, drug dealers & felons prohibited for public safety from possessing firearms with detailed designs & instructions on how to fabricate Zip guns.
he was part of the reasons/Excuses used by the UK government to make firearm ownership a very hard thing,
not so much changed for legitimate needs of target shooting or hunting, but in the collection world of deactivated weapons, that can be easily reactivated, & which were available without any licence's, now instead, because of him, even collectors & museums with collections of deactivated firearms which is very big in the UK, have started to lose their collections without compensation & have been prevented from trading in them, leaving the only way to pass them on is to hand them in to police for melting down. many legit firms have been hurt & some have closed down because of him,...

Wow, quite the resumes- for you and him.
I wonder how Brits feel about the whole concept of home gun making and particularly about 3d printed parts/ guns and their files circulating in the real and virtual world.

Americans consider building guns to be a protected right, at least on federal level it's allowed with some restrictions. Not so much in the states we call the Ban states- NJ being one of them.

America seems to be gradually sliding into gun restrictions in correlation with mass shootings , not because of home made gunsmithing.

I would think that crafty freelancing gunsmiths tinkering in their workshops not restrained by corporative bonds and their R&D departments could do a lot of interesting things potentially usable by the commercial or military market...

Would the black market benefit from those? Absolutely, but I guess the safety/ security and freedom quite frequently are mutually exclusive things...

I used to deal a hell of a lot with NJ cops & to be honest, out of the 300+ I had dealings with, I personally would only issue permits to maybe 20 of them, totally ignorant of firearm safety, I have even had a NJ State trooper hand me his 10mm S&W with a round in the chamber just to show it to me !!, & another who put a .22 round through the roof of his patrol car one night & a month later put a .357 round through the police station's internal wall missing an office girl by a few inches because he was talking on the phone as he played with gun !!... you NEVER hand your weapon to someone you don't really know & certainly not a loaded one, & you never put ya finger on the trigger unless you are going to fire !!!.... I always lock my Firearms in a gun safe if I'm going out or away for any length of time, & lock the ammo up somewhere else so they are not together if I get broken in to, why make it easy for them,
for the simple reason I don't want them stolen, I can't afford to replace them, I ain't rich, which is where most illegal guns come from, I don't understand people who just leave pistols & rifles lying about so any skank can steal them, gun control doesn't mean taking guns away, just basic safety & security measures is what I am all for, the background checks I don't mind as it kicks out those who shouldn't have firearms, Junkies, ex cons, kids who look older than they are, in NJ, once you have been cleared you get a permit that allows you to buy any rifle or shotgun over the counter without any cooling off period, yes, the 6 weeks to get a pistol permit is a drag but I can live with that as I know I will pass any & all background & medical checks, where do all these kids we see almost weekly shooting down schools etc get them from, they steal them from either friends & family who did not secure their firearms or they break in somewhere & steal them, back home in NJ I keep a 1911 in a bedside safe I can get to in 2-3 seconds, but no one else could , it seems to me the only ones against mild controls are the ones because of past history are not allowed to get a gun, legit owners & users don't seem to have a problem in it or using safes or secure gun rooms,...
