    Sportcity charging problem, once solved, broken again, help help

    Hey,
    about month ago my Sportcity 250 stopped charging.
    I ordered new voltage regulator and everything was ok.
    I also put extra ground wire from battery to body.
    Today was a shock.
    Charging only 11.5v.
    What in the earth can it be?
    Earlier also measured voltage coming from magneto/flywheel and it was ok.

    A bad replacement part? Possibly bad connector or wire in the mix?

    Really do not know what happened, but after I took of almost all panels and covers the bike started to charge normally.
    Not happy with the outcome because did not find where the problem was but what can I do.
    Put all back today and moved on.
