It’s been a little while since I have posted a Serious Custom so I thought I would get my act together and upload one from the many I have backlogged waiting patiently to be published. So what we have for you today is Sam Todd’s Custom Road Star, “Back In Black” which is also the first Privately owned Serious Custom to be featured on RoadStarMagazine.com. Unless you happen to live in Todd’s neck of the woods, RoadStarMagazine.com is about the only other place you will see this great machine as Sam doesn’t have a website at this point. So naturally we’re more than happy to host his bike for him here for the entire world to see!
Charging problems can drive you up the wall. Adding to this is the fact that there seems to be no easy way for us simpleton’s to verify that the Regulator/Rectifier is good or faulty. This primer goes along that line, as does the Yamaha Service Manual. The Service Manual leaves some to be desired and I hope I’ve explained it a bit further so you can successfully troubleshoot your charging circuit.
