I have a '73 xlch kick start that has been a pain since day 1 with charging issues. I had replaced the original mechanical regulator last year after it had got hot stuck and started on fire. This spring I had installed a new solid state regulator, went through all of the bikes wiring and replaced the generator and oil lights that were not working. The battery is about a year old and takes and holds charge. Anyway found the generator was not charging so it was sent in and was found to have a burnt winding in the armature. The armature was replaced during the generator rebuild. Installed the generator and polarized it. Was charging at 14.2v took it out on a test drive at about mile 5 generator light came on, i pulled over and found generator smoking. Trailered bike back and checked all wiring, found nothing burnt, battery not boiled over but generator burnt to a crisp. What to do?
