7016 Charging Problem

Recommended Posts

Greetings all, I've got a problem with my 7016 that I haven't been able to track down yet. Darned thing won't charge the (new this summer) battery, doesn't even show a twitch of the ammeter on the dash. It never has, but I thought that was due to a new battery. Each time I start it up, it spins slower, and slower, so something's not right. I read some other posts in the archive and was wondering if it's possible to clean the contacts of my voltage regulator? Has anyone ever tried this or should I go to the dealer and buy one. I suspect that they're rather expensive, (as are most dealer parts), so I was interested in trying to repair the one I have first. Thanks
