Hi everyone.. found the group while looking for some troubleshooting guide.. i just bought myself a used MP3 500 a few weeks ago.. absolutely LOVE IT!! however it died on me the other day as i approach a traffic light and would not start again. Starter just kept on buzzing..typical of a dead battery.. just got lucky that there was a motorcycle shop i know around the corner so took it there.. they kindly jumpstarted it and fired up immediately!
While there the technician offered to check the charging which showed that it was only charging the battery @ 9.5v to 11.5v while idling..should be higher normally?
I thought it's no good having it in this state so i left it with them to sort out..
I just found out about the "hidden fuse" here so did not had any chance checking this before taking it to the shop..
In my head it could be the stator, voltage regulator, wiring or just the hidden fuse.. any guesses?
Thanks in advance..
