Dealer (excellent dealer) replaced clutch cable, on way home check engine light came on. Went back to dealer, computer showed electrical, battery test was low. Reset and put on charger at home. Drove for two days and light came on again, engine stopped while riding. Computer again showed electrical, battery test said replace, put in new battery. Drove two days and again light came on, test showed rectifier/regulator needed to be replaced, which dealer did. Drove two days and again check engine light came on. Dealer says must be a wiring problem.

Any suggestions, getting frustrated:p:confused:

Don't know what bike this is but anyway if it was fine and then the excellent dealer changed the clutch cable and then it started failing, I would expect the dealer to check any and all places along the routing of the clutch cable that intersects electrical including wiring and connections that may have gotten pinched or dislodged during tank removal and so forth.

Most times the first place to look for the cause of problems is the last place humans put their hands.

So you have three shop tickets so far that started with a clutch cable and the dealer has replaced the battery and the VR and now he thinks it might be wiring? Excellent you say?

OTOH if you let him continue to rely on the computer to guide his diagnosis you could very well end up with an entirely new electrical system so that would be excellent.

I think your Dealer (excellent dealer) must have pinched a wire when they were working on your bike.

What year and type of bike?
What dealer?
