Generator not charging ....

Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.

Replaced my old 3 brush generator with a fresh rebuilt and converted 2 brush generator and also replaced the old reley with an electronic one. I polarized the generator and the relay which has a green and a red diode indicates that the generator is charging (diode is green) and properly polarised. However, the genlight doesnt die when i rev the engine. I need the bike on saturday for a 600 km trip, so uregnt help is appreciated

I measured battery at 6.28 volt and when i start the bike and i measure the volt at the battery terminal at the relay it drops below 6 volt ...
