RaceTech Electric offers in-house testing services for stators, voltage regulators, and other motorcycle electrical components. Stator & Voltage regulator testing is done in our R&D lab with custom built test equipment. Testing services can be arranged easily with a phone call. We offer discounted electronics testing services for local shops, and free for dealers. Testing services are $20 per item, all of which will be refunded upon purchase of a replacement stator or regulator from us. We can easily tell you if your stator is in good shape and producing all of it's potential power. We can heat cycle stators, and detect issues occuring only under high temperature or high load situations, which may be very difficult to detect on the bike. We can also stress test voltage regulators-regulator/rectifiers, cycling them through phases of high loading to full regulation. We can also check the voltage regulation point accurately, and detect rectifier diodes that are worn and on the verge of failure.

Our motorcycle charging system tester allows for mounting of all permanent magnet flywheels, and drive speeds of up to 16,000 RPM to produce maximum power output in stators from all types of motorcycles. The flywheel is mounted to a self-centering base, the spindle of which is belt driven by a large 3hp 3-phase electric motor. By using a very accurate Pulse Width Modulated motor controller, we are able to accurately drive the flywheel at a specific RPM. Stators are mounted to a fixed base, with CAD-designed adapters to center different sizes of stator cores. The stator mount slides on tracks to enter the stator inside of the flywheel. The stator can be tested using on-board equipment to simulate the rest of a motorcycles' charging system, or used to drive a regulator/rectifier unit. The on-board electronics include 2 large high-Farad capacitors, a three phase bridge rectifier, and a large 500W switchable resistive load bank. The paralleled capacitors simulate a dead motorcycle battery, that needs to be charge as the stator begins producing current. The bridge rectifier allows DC testing without needing a separate regulator/rectifier unit. The load bank can switch in up to 500W of resistance in units of 10/20/50/100 Watts, to simulate the load on the battery & charging system (think lights, electrical accessories, heated grips, etc.).

Research & Development - Motorcycles/Bikes/Quads Needed for Testing
Here at RaceTech Electric, we're always looking for local bikes to help out with the R&D process. We are constantly working on new parts for new fitments, and we have new prototype parts in every month or so. We need bikes in the R&D shop for final validation and testing use. For R&D use, you'll need to be able to drop your bike off at our shop. We're located in Carlsbad, CA 92011. We will quote you a time frame for testing to be completed. Upon completion, you will either get the upgraded prototype to keep, or if it needs to be kept for production use, your stock parts will be reinstalled. Either way, you will get brand new production part(s) once manufacturing is complete. We also sometimes send out parts for testing, if you guarantee to give us good feedback on the part. In these circumstances, we generally charge you 25% of the part cost. Once feedback or test results are received as agreed upon, the amount is refunded to you. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our R&D team!
