Brush Assy Inspection
Using the × 1 Ω hand tester range, measure the resis-
tance as follows.
Terminal Bolt and Positive Brushes [A]
Brush Plate and Negative Brushes [B]
The reading should be zero.
If there is not close to zero ohms, the brush lead has an
open. Replace the terminal bolt assembly and the brush
Brush Plate and Terminal Bolt Inspection
Using the highest hand tester range, measure the resis-
tance as shown.
Terminal Bolt and Brush Plate [A]
Terminal Bolt and Negative Brush Holders [B]
Terminal Bolt and Yoke [C]
The reading should be infinite (∞ Ω).
If there is any reading, the brush holder assembly and/or
terminal bolt assembly have a short. Replace the brush
holder assembly and the terminal bolt assembly.
Starter Relay Inspection
Remove the right side covers (see Frame chapter).
Remove the coolant reserve tank, then the starter relay.
Connect the hand tester [A] and 12 V battery [B] to the
starter relay [C] as shown.
If the relay does not work as specified, the relay is defec-
tive. Replace the relay.
Tester Range: × 1 Ω range
When battery is connected → 0 Ω
When battery is disconnected → ∞ Ω
