1980 Susuki FA 50 update

1980 Suzuki FA 50 bog down update,It probably has the same problem My bike had it needs a voltage regulator or voltage rectifier, take the battery out and with a voltmeter attached it to the positive and negitive battery wires start the bike and take note of the readings idle it should be 5-6 volts, when reving the bike up to as high as it will go the voltage should not go much higher than 7-8 volts if it goes to 10 or even 12 like my bike did it will cause the CDI or Capacitor discharge ignition box to malfuction and could become permanantly damaged replace the voltage rectifier and maybe the CDI box as well , replace the voltage rectifier first you may not need the CDI box replaced.

Good luck
