so the ohms between each leg are less than 1. no shorts to ground. each leg is putting out 7vac at idle just above idle 15vac half throttle 25vac 50vac at high revs. sorry cant give exact rpms costumer removed speedo. but only getting 12vdc from reg rec at high rpm. seeing as the motor has to be removed to check stator do yall think its a reg rec?

 

also manual says 10 to 12vac on each leg at idle.

It looks to me like the reg isn't doing it's job properly. With those voltages at the stator it looks like it should be charging. I wouldn't worry too much about the voltage being slightly low at idle.

I'd check the DC output of the reg for any AC, which indicates one failed diode. Then I'd check the earth connection from the reg all the way to the battery, so reg to body, body to battery, and I'd check the charging wire going from the reg to the battery.

That's what being professional is all about, sometimes we have to make some pragmatic decision, such as this one you have here, and in these situations we need to be able to explain and justify our reasoning, decisions, actions and workmanship...  Which you can..   

Depending on the price, fitting a new regulator is probably the pragmatic thing to do, before pulling the bike to bits possibly for no reason. When we can't be certain, it's better to take the cheapest option first.

You did check for a bad earth on the reg did you ? And the wire from the reg to the battery ?  Either of those could cause the low voltage.. the earth being the most likely..

It's strange that the ohms are good on the stator and they are putting out voltage. I doubt the windings are the problem. A weak magnet from sitting unused perhaps, or metal filings bridging the magnets or bridging the gap between magnets and stator poles ?

I'd have expected both those ohm readings, from the black wire, and the reg's body, to be the same, and probably a little less than a half ohm..  Perhaps try a jumper earth from the black wire and/or reg's body to try it. The reg is regulating, but if it's not earthing properly it will think the voltage is higher than it is by some small amount.. 

If that doesn't make any difference then one last check would be to put a bulb onto the stator wires..  A bulb will work on AC and it will test there is some amperage coming out..

We're on 230 volts here in NZ and I've used a 100 watt household bulb before to test stators.. they glow fairly brightly.

If none of that works then it looks like pulling the motor and having a look is the next step..

From what I read in my manual, it would appear that there are specific tests to be taken IN ORDER to determine if a STATOR needs replacement.  Same thing with the Regulator.  I don't have it at hand, but I was deep into it diagnosing* a starter issue recently - all up and running now! 

If tests to date indicate a bad regulator, accept those results and see about returning the one customer purchased before pulling the engine (BTW there is only one motor on the 330 and it is the starter motor - the device that helps start the engine!).

Look in the SPECS section and the Troubleshooting section to see if you can find the diagnostic checklist. There HAS to be one 'cause CanAm has to be able to fix what they sell! By now (what 20 years on) they should have run into just about everything that might go awry and has.

At least three CANAM dealers however, told me "We don't work on ATVs that old."  One wanted $125 to 'diagnose' the problem when I asked "How much to R&R the starter?"  When I told him I wasn't looking for a second opinion, just a price for the R&R, he (Schronce Powersports, Taylorsville, NC) told me that there likely weren't any starters available!

Best you can hope for is a fellow mechanic with a link to a great repair manual and electrical system checklist.  I would also search Diagnosing electrical issues on" 2004 CAN AM Outlander 330" with two fingers crossed. Just possible that mechanic with the checklist did a video!

I found a list of repair manual files on this page - but have NOT d/l'd anything from it. http://files.brptuning.ru/Bombardier/Manuals/ATV/

Let us know what you discover!

Ha..  He asked for a remove and overhaul quote, and they started straight off suggesting they would fit a new starter.. if one was available. They didn't want to job.. 

 

And yeah Gooey, we're not so pedantic about motor/engine here in NZ..  Sorry about that.

On pages 198-200+ in the manual they detail the testing of the stator in situ - no need to pull the thing to test it!

I would assume that, if teh stator tests AOK, one need look elsewhere for the problem before tearing the 'motor' down to replace it.

Yep, I ran into that right after I bought a USED 330. Closest CanAM dealer wasted my time and money replacing batteries and such while charging for 'diagnoses and shop materials. I finally went online, found RM STATOR and bought the new version. Basically plug and play - $90US and not an issue since.  I found out much later that 1. there is a simple test a dealer should have known about as well as 2. there were 'factory bulletins on the issue some time before I brought my 330 into Schronce Powersports. So, I like RM Stator!

      I did a compression test on my 2005 Bombardier Traxter 650 CVT and it's 75 PSI.  service manual only talks about leak down test.  No specification for engine compression the manual.  What does 75 PSI tell me?  Thank in advance.
       
      A little history of this machine.  640 miles.  Picked it up about 2 years ago, not running. Probably the computer.  Tested all circuits and confirm it was the computer.  Long story short, I watched a Youtube video and fixed the computer. ATV now started and runs.  BUT, it tops out 20 MPH.  I cleaned the carb 3 times also using a Mikuni carb kit after the second time.  Slide in carb is going up and down.  Only adjustment for fuel is at 1.5 turns out.  NGK Sparkplug had soot on main part but brown on the electrode.  Champion sparkplug is brown.  I check CVT clutches and they both appear to engage like they suppose to.  Checked valve clearance it's 0.00, I can't get any feeler gauges in-between.  I check timing chain I believe it's in the correct position and hasn't skipped.  I removed muffler plug and drilled into muffler to try and make sure it wasn't plugged.

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      I’m looking for a top end kit for a Yamaha. I would like to see how well the engine runs before spending $6-$7 hundred on oem. Niche has complete kits from $1-$2 hundred.  Anyone have experience with Niche or similar Chinese companies?

      Hello i have a 2005 Bombardier Outlander max xt 400, i recently split the case to fix a oil leak. while in there i took out the oil pump and i cant find the torque specs for the oil pump to go back in, i tend to over tighten everything so im trying to go be the torque specs so i dont break anything.
       
      Thank you in advance

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
       
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.
