1981 cx500, was riding and charging fine before I allowed it to get heavily rained on, ignition system and a few small things went out and had to be replaced and on a recent ride, I got stranded with a dead battery. When the bike was back in the garage I found that my regulator rectifier was outputting 1V at its peak and not increasing with revs. I did the diode test and it passed, checked the stator for continuity and ground, it passed as well. I have 3 extra regulator rectifiers from some other cx parts bikes and I swapped them in to see what would happen…..all 3 are outputting 23v. Honestly I’m at a complete loss with this any help is appreciated.
