Take an OHM reading between all the possible pairs (white to pink, white to yellow, and pink to yellow..... Also check that NONE of the three wires is contiguous to ground....
Correct ohm readings, No opens between pairs and no shorts to ground , it is good.....
OR, you can read AC volts between pairs with the engine running...... PM for specifics if necessary... Steve

Can any one tell me how to test the stator in my 71 cl450?

Thanks, David
Take resistance readings between the yellow, pink, and white wires coming from the stator.
They should read a very low reading between each other, and infinity between each of those wires to ground.

At least, I think so - Steve??

Well heres what ive got.

Pink/yellow 1.2ohm
Pink/white .8ohm
White /yellow 1.7ohm

White to ground 1.1ohm
pink to ground 1.1ohm
white to ground 1.1ohm
I did this at battery ground

Only white and yellow had ac volts between them while running .121v ac

Sounds like bad stator. I guess ill add that to the list. Any suggestions on a good place to get one?

Thanks, David

Yeah, your coils are shorted to ground.
Look on EBay, that's probably your best bet. It's NLA from Honda - even if it were still available, you couldn't afford it........

David...Recheck continuity from each of the 3 wires to the case ground with battery disconnected...... I assume you were reading the AC voltages with the probes inserted into the UNPLUGGED connector coming out of the engine cases (that IS the correct way to do it).....If not, redo it unplugged....( With it plugged into the main harness you would be reading the rectifier/regulator and those MAY be the problem) However , It DOES sound like you need a stator.... There should be NO continuity to ground.....I HAVE A STATOR FOR YOU!..... PM me... Steve
