For the past few years I've been running my voltage regulator under the engine in the space where the starter used to be without any problems. About a month ago I bought Hughs PMA kit and a Accel capacitor and swapped everything out. For the first three weeks everthing worked great until one day the bike decided that it only wanted to idle and would completely break up if any throttle was applied. I hooked a volt meter to the capacitor and was reading around 12v at idle and around 5v when I tried to apply throttle. I then swapped the capacitor with a battery and the readings were 13v at idle and 11v at throttle. The readings poined to a fault with the regulator. I then ordered a new regulator from Hugh and installed it. This time around I made it about 10 miles before having the same problem. After letting the bike cool off for about 45 minutes I started it up and it ran fine but once it got warmed up the ignition started breaking up again under load. So my questions are, is anyone else experiencing problems similar to this? Is it possible that the regulators that Hugh is selling are that sensitive to temperature? And once the regulator starts faulting does that mean that it is failing and junk or that it is just overheating and once cool it's as good as new? Thanks!
