hey guys im having an issue with the charging system on a t28. Its charging at 34.2 volts and boiling batterys dry! I thought it was the rectifier/regulator so i switched it out with another t28 and still have the same issue and the old one worked fine on the other machine. Any ideas or suggestions would really help me out! Can someone tell me what the stator should be putting out? thanks Brent

Sorry about that, I posted the wrong reply first.

The charging issue is a strange one, the regulator is pretty much the gate keeper of the voltage. I would make sure that the wiring is correct to Honda's schematic, but also a bad battery can cause the voltage to be unusually high. If you have experienced the high voltage on a known good battery with a known good regulator, then the only components left are the stator and the wiring. I don't have the specifics on that particular stator, but generally it seems that AC output of a stator for a 12 volt system is around 20 volts give or take. The regulator should convert the AC voltage to DC voltage and regulate the output. You might just double check your meter to see that you are not getting erroneous readings.

Thanks for the help i finally found a bare wire coming from the stator and fixed that and everything seems to running perfect now!
