Default New Guy..

Hello all, just picked up a 04' CB599 this week. I have to say I love this thing. She's been a blast to ride this week. So far this week I've been mainly just cleaning her up and noting items I need to replace. So far the list is small:

Neutral Sensor
Turn Signal Switch Assembly

She's not a prom queen... But she's fun to get out on the dance floor with.

Sorry I didn't take photos during the day, these were taken with the house spotlight, makes her look better.

So here she is..

My bike had these parking stickers on the fork when I got it. I was about to take them off and I read the sticker. It said something like Department of Defense and the name of some air force base in AZ. I thought it was cool and left it.

I've been working on her the past couple of week, did a thorough cleaning of her. I was also able to find a how-to on here how to work on the turn signal assembly and was able to clean that out and get that working again. So far just replaced the neutral switch and she is getting new tires this weekend. I plan on getting some major miles on her this up coming weekend.

It's an aftermarket exhaust that the previous owner put on and removed the badging. I'll have to search who the manufacturer is. It has a nice sound, louder then stock but not too over bearing.

Also had a little setback this weekend. Been having a battery issue where it wasn't holding a charge thought it was the battery and this past weekend the bike died on me while out on a ride. Doing a proper test, traced it back to the Regulator.

Well I will have my hands full this weekend, looks like a Stator, Regulator, and new wiring harness is in the works.

Sorry about your regulator/rectifier issue. Your exhaust is a GPR Deeptone. At purchase, the end can comes with two baffles installed - one at the front and one at the exit. Either or both are easily removed/reinstalled to effect volume. I started with both in - ok but something of a farty character. Removed the exit baffle and it sounded much better while still maintaining what I think is a socially acceptable volume level. I'm confident it would be too loud for my taste with both baffles removed.

nothing wrong with your Stator!
common problem on the hornet (hondas!!!!)
check you have a good earth from the Reg/Rec firstly.
might require a new Reg/rec though.
also check the triple connector between the Stator and the Reg/Rec, that is
proun to burn out too.

Thanks Steve, I tested the stator last night when I got the Rectifier in and it was working correctly. Also checked the connector and it looked good also, but at some point must have went bad because there were some light burnt marks on the protective rubber around all the cables.

After putting in the Rectifier I tested the charging voltages and it looked good. Road her around for a few hours and no issues.

She is purring like a kitten again. Thanks for all your assistance.
