Exclamation Ah. This can't be good news... help?

OK, anyone able to tell me what sort of hideous collateral this may have caused? Went to start the bike and it went CLICK. All lights out, battery voltage at 0.00v. Pulled the reg/reg which I should have changed 6 months ago and this horrific image was the result.

So, if anyone knows what other sparky bits may have been hideously maimed by the shrapnel of this self-detonating suicidal device, I would love to know before I hook up $250 worth of brand new battery and MOSFET R/R.

Much love,

OR

if I have to replace that one black wire that will be a massive pain, it goes straight to the big fat bundle of wires wrapped in seven baskrillion layers of leccy tape...

No other damage likely, though anything is possible.

DO a R/R swap, obviously ditch that plug and it's mate as part of the swap, .. take some meter readings

thanks mate, doing the swap now. you're right of course, there could be related on unrelated damage elsewhere, was just going for the 'probably/probably not' kind of angle

That plug melts and often the regulator/ rectifier is toast as well.. but the stator survives.. as well as the wiring down stream.

Replace that R/R with a MOSFET type as seen here https://www.superhawkforum.com/forum...why-how-25117/

And go from there

The part that usually fails is the battery... If that's still at a reasonable voltage, it means the R/R kind of mostly "worked" to the end, and didn't kill anything else... If the battery is cooked, then you might have other things damaged... That's decent enough indicator, but like Eric said, swap the R/R and plug/burnt wires (might need to replace, migth do with just shortening them) and go from there...
