It Sounds Like Your Alternator Isn`t Putting Out Enough Amperage (Voltage) Check At The Battery With A Volt Mater It Should Read Near 15 Volts, But Not Over 17 or 18. Have It Tested While It Is On The Car At Some Auto Stores Can Do This. Also First Check Your Battery Connections, They May Be Corroded. If After Cleaning Connections & Unit Still Does This Test Alternator, Sounds Like Voltage Regulator Is Bad Inside Of Alternator.

What is the antonym for run?

"To run" is a verb, and while some verb forms can have antonyms (coming/going), there is no direct opposite of running. While "walking" might be suggested as one, so could "staying" or "standing still", since either could indicate a situation where one is "not running".

How do you know if a regulator is bad on a 1989 harley Davidson?

Check your stator first. That is the two wires coming out of the front of the case on the left side. With the bike running it should read about 18VAC. The two wires go directly to your regulator. Check the output of the regulator. You can do this at the battery. A charged battery should read between 12-13VDC (bike not running). Start the bike. Check for DC voltage at the battery again. It should read 14-14.5VDC. If you are only getting battery voltage with the bike running (1500-2000RPM) and the stator (rotating assembly) is putting out 18VAC +or- 1VAC your regulator is bad.

Is 'to come' an infinitive phrase?

Yes. Infinitive verbs are verbs which do not indicate a number or a tense. "To come" is an infinitive form of the verb, as is "coming" because these forms do not indicate the number of people or things which are "to come", nor do these forms indicate when the "coming" happens. (All English infinitives start with "to" or end with "-ing".)
