yeah, I did, I don't think I was getting anything, across the A & F or to ground, I pulled the gen, a wire had fell off one of the brushes, it has 2, and the springs looked like they were in a fire.

It's been a long time since I have worked on a generator system but it seems that the generator may need to be polerized.

A=Amature
F=Field
12V=Battery connection

Get a jumper wire and connect it to the battery and then touch it to the A (amature) for about a second. Then see if it charges. I can't remember if this needs to be done with the bike running or not. I would try it first with the bike off and if that doesn't work try it with the bike running.
