rectifier harness plug burned need repair help in South Houston!

Hi,

Yes, I've read all the testing from links given and had an idea what to do. But I'm not good at electrical stuffs and I work most of the time so I really couldn't fix it myself. =(

Anyhow, I'm looking for a credible motorcycle repair in the local area and would like to know if anyone got a reference.
I'm next to University of Houston Clear Lake.

Thanks in Advance!

X-it Cycles is right off of 518 between hwy 3 and 45. Not sure how reputable they are, but they've been there for years, so they must be doing something right. Texas Cycle Center is right down the street from them as well (I think). Moved back to the north side a few years ago. Might be worth calling them up.

If the rectifier harness plug is burnt then there is a very good chance that a damaged rectifier caused it. Any shop will likely tell you to replace the entire unit

Thanks for the information

My bike is a Yamaha 2003 R6.

I don't have any tools or electrical skill to get this done without messing it up.
Called a mobile service yesterday and got quoted 200 without even looking at the bike.

X-it Cycle was on my calling list yesterday as well. Said they would need my bike to be at the shop to inspect it thoroughly. They can pick up the bike for $75. =/

If I didn't read any of the posts on the forum, I would think this is a difficult fix. But I did and it's not that difficult if all tools are available. Perhaps I need to get an electrician or someone that has done this before so they won't rip me off too much. =(

I can splice the plug for you and fix it for 50.00, but you have to bring the bike to me. if it needs a rectifier, it's on your dime as well.

I can do it one of two ways, install a completely differnt plug on both ends, or solder and shrink wrap the wires.

It shouldn't take an hour to complete it.

I am in deer park.

Post up a picture of the burnt plugs, If you can't get the bike to me, I may be able to walk you through it online. it's pretty simple to do.

imag0183copyjf5

mine was burnt like that.

and I'm trying to do this

rectifier harness plug burned need repair help in South Houston!

my burnt wire was the black one.

I already cut it from the connector. Already saw off the burn section on the connector to have room for the new female connector. Went to Ace Hardware and got one, but couldn't get the thick wire to stay in the female connector. =/ I figured if it is not tight enough, it'd cause problem again.

^ thanks, I think I saw the short problem today as I removed the battery to charge. There was a single ground cable that hook to the black side of the battery terminal. This ground cable looks pretty beat up where it connects the wire/loop, which busted its own insulator.

Send a message via MSN to signpimp
I had a friend with the same bike, with the same problem. He did exactly what you did with adding the external spade connector. Don't do it. The next day he sent me a picture of his bike on fire after it shorted out again while he was riding it.

Put a new molex connector in place. The rectifier is probably already toast and if it shorts anymore, your stator will have to be replaced next - if not already.
