    looking at all of the shiny 'new' rotors, I have been wondering if there is any noticeable effect by brushing off the outer metal that gets magnetized? I ask because mine still have an even coating only with some crud. A screw driver still slaps down on them all. Going to clean the copper and take some xxxx grit paper to the area I scratched with the multi-meter probes....to distract me from thinking about I just fried my HF sonic cleaner (water).

    Hi Jim,
    I'm interested in your rotor. I have 2 TCI rotors which need re-winding. 1 could be a core and 1 to re-wind as your schedule permits? Please let me know your current pricing and procedure to get them to you.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    Here's another. Made for the 70-79 bikes before the TCI system. Anyone notice anything "special" about it?:sneaky:
    Same as always, read comment #1 for terms and conditions.

    You didn't show a before pic.
    Now I see in your pic in #143 all the screws are on the inside with just the magnet on the outer.
    Sneaky bastard.:eek:

    EVERYONE - if you have alternator trouble - here are the steps you take:
    1. DO NOT order a PMA - put your wallet away.
    2. Be sure that all electrical connections are clean and secure (like say, those two big screws holding the + and - terminals on the top of the battery);
    3. Check that your battery is fully charged to 12.5-12.7 volts AND that it will hold a charge overnight AND that it will run your headlight or turn signals - with the engine OFF - for at least 20 minutes before the voltage across the + and - terminals drops below 12 volts;
    4. Check your alternator brush length (this takes ~10 minutes and requires a #2 and a #1 JIS screwdriver) - and if they are OK, go to Step 5;
    5. Go through the article XS650 Charging Systems for Dummies by Jim (the article is attached as a .pdf and it is easy to follow, doesn't take a lot of fancy electrical know-how or expensive tools and it will help you to identify your problem - plus it gives you an excuse to buy a nifty new tool - a multimeter - which can be had at Horrible Fright, Princess Auto, Crappy Tire, RadioSchmuck or WallyWorld for about $10-15);
    6. Depending on the results of your tests, either get a new modern regulator-rectifier unit (unlikely if all the connections are clean and secure) or order one of Jim's superb re-wound rotors as advertised above. They literally are better than new.
    7. See Step 1.
    I got one of Jim's first re-winds for my 1976 XS650C (the troublesome, but endearing Lucille :yikes:) a couple of years ago but, being a stubborn engineer, I wanted to see how long the original rotor would survive in-service and about 10 days ago on a ride with Lakeview and TotalFool, I found out.....:cussing:
