I had to replace the regulator/rectifier on an N reg Virago 250 because too late I realised it was delivering about 15V and boiled the baterry dry. Amazingly with distilled water the battery has recovered. After I replaced the rectifier I noticed the main fuse had blown and melted the fuse holder. I replaced the fuse and holder with a 20A blade fuse and the bike starts fine. However, there are some remaining electrical issues.
Bike starts and runs,
main and dipped healamps fine
Green Neutral bulb fine
Signal / indicator fuse has not blown – tested continuity with multimeter.
Do not work
Indicators front or back
Rear light when front light on nor brake light when operate hand brake or foot brake
There are only two fuses on this bike (as the service manual shows): main 20A and signal 10A.
I have the service manual. Any suggestions where I start looking for the problem?
