I'm writing this in an effort to help someone else possible head off a problem and express the importance of a gauge & die-electric grease... here's the story... About 10 months ago I invested in a Kuryakyn voltage gauge. Here recently I've noticed instead of 2-green lights solid, I had 1 & 1-flickering. Having some trips coming up & not wanting to get stranded I did some trouble-shooting last night. (Using this valuable self-help section) I checked both stator & volage regulator and did not find any problems... upon reassembly I cleaned & used die-electric grease on the 3-pin stator & 2-pin Ground & power connectors... then put it up for the night (Late) This afternoon I hopped on the bike to go get some gas for the week-end & guess what... Now I have 2-good solid green lights again... Lesson: A little corrosion starts small & then gets worst. I think had I not discovered this it would have led to bigger problems... I hope this helps someone else.
