  • Motor charging at 16 volts

    Good day I have a suzuki dt 50 1983. When motor is at idle 850rpm voltage is steady at 13 volts but soon as a increase revs above 2500 rpm the voltage climbs to 16 volts. I have checked the connections no sign of corrosion. Could the rectifier be faulty? Looking at the wiring diagrams it looks like a voltage regulator is optional. I have seen on line you can get a rectifier/regulator would this solve my problem.
    any advice would be appreciated
    thank you

    That is possible, but earlier motors may have had separate regulators, also, it is not uncommon for voltages to go a little higher (14 - 16 volts) when at higher rpms. Is your voltage causing problems?

    Good luck, post back on what you find out.
