What’s caused 955 Daytona electrics to overheat?

MCN, 09 July 2012 16:51

Q. I have just replaced the stator and regulator/rectifier on my 2005 43,000-mile 955i Triumph Daytona. The problem I now have is that the wiring from the alternator and the 30-amp fuse is getting very hot. I’ve checked the battery readings when switched off for an hour, at tickover and 5000rpm. They are: 11.65 volts, 3.37 volts and 13.45 volts ...

MCN, 28 May 2012 13:56

Q. I was advised the rattle on my Honda Hornet 600 was probably the camchain tensioner, so I had a new one fitted, but now the rattle has returned.
