Thanks for the comments, I'll get there in the end I hope!!

I've re-run the generator tests in IronMicks sticky, other than the Amps check, which I'll do tonight if I can find an ammeter! it has passed them all. So unless it fails the ammeter test I'd say that the generator in fine. I'll concentrate on the regulator & wiring over the weekend.

One thing, there wasn't a diode fitted in the generator light circuit when I bought the bike, so I've fitted one as shown in the manual. I wouldn't have thought that this would prevent the battery being charged would it, even if I fitted it the wrong way round?

Cheers
