Question about 2002 Ducati 750 SS

Help: 93 750 supersport wiring diagram or charging system info?

I can't get my battery to charge. Needless to say it has made the bike un-rideable. I can't find the ducati book I bought from desmo times and have no other documentation on the wiring system or charging system. I thought I would try here first before buying something new. You guys have anything you could share electronically or links you could point me too? Love this bike. In my mind its a sleeper

Tons of Italian spice at a budget price. Mine has nearly 20k on it. I would also take tire advice if anybody has any. Since the bike is down I am going to change those too. Mostly commuting some day trips and always ride in the rain. Thanks much.We're going to need some more info. How old is the battery? The battery won't hold a charge or the charging system doesn't put enough energy back to the battery to restart it after running for a while? Check all your electrical connections battery terminals, solenoid, starter, and engine/frame back to ground. On the left engine side cover is a heavy gauge cable from the altenator. Follow that wire to some push connectors. Check around the connections for burned or brittle wire insulation. Check the regulator/recifier (R/R), aluminum block with fins, wiring as well. It wouldn't be unreasonable, on a '93, to expect that it may need a new stator and R/R.,,,

Bike isnt charging battery


If the battery charged before the "chop job/ignition bypass" and afterward does not, the you have left out a circuit that excites the alternator field. This was most likely part of the original ignition wiring, and you will need a Honda wiring diagram of you bike model and specific year in order to identify the wiring correctly. Otherwise, restore the original ignition wiring and switches, and see if the battery starts charging again. Then work backwards removing only the wiring that you know is not part of the charging system. Through the process of elimination you will discover which wire powers the alternator. It will take time and patience.

I have a 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 SRAD. My problem is my battery doesn't seem to stay charged. I have to Jump it off with my car, but then when I remove the cable the bike shuts off. The battery is brand...


sounds like your charging system went out, this isn't a new problem to bikes and alot of older bike have this issue. First was your car running when you jump started your bike?? If so this can cause damage to the charging system. if your not sure how to replace the stator and reg/rec i will happey to help you get it done. please understand that this does take some thinking and removing the tail, left hand body parts and the lh side cover of the motor. If your will to take it on let me know. If not your local bike shop can fix your bike in about a week if they have to order parts. the stator on your bike isn't the cheapest and reg/rec isn;t that bad as far as price goes. you'll need oil a filter and a new gasket for the motor cover and the charging system parts.
let me know what you would like to do.

The battery does not hold a charge after completely charged-suspect the charging system-the Honda shop technician said nothing is wrong with the charging system or the battery.


Hi and welcome to fixya,


Try checking for short circuits, it usually is a worn out wire (positive) touching against the chassis (negative). It could drain the battery in no time. Also, how did the honda shop technician tested the battery? I use an automatic charging system that detects errors on charging and I had the same problem with a battery not holding charge. Using the charger, it detected it with with an error code that interprets to be "Battery Sulfated" thus concluding battery is indeed dead.

One quick test you can do with the battery is to open the reservoir caps (be careful and use gloves as this is a very strong acid). Get a wire and short the two contacts momentarily or for about 2 seconds. If you see the liquid inside boil, then the plates are worn or sulfated.

The quickest solution for this problem is to buy a new battery. There's a great chance your bike's charging system is still working but if your battery is quite old, lets say 2 years. It could be dead. Replace with low maintenance types, they are expensive but stands the test of time, more rugged and worth it.

Hope this info helps

My 2008 hyosung gt250r will not start but i can push it off and it works great and shifts fine and the lights go dim when the bike is not running and the brake light and head lights work but the blinkers...


short in wiring or switch causing battery discharge. charge battery to full charge . see if everything works right. ifturn lights
still dont work, un hook switch to turn signals . wait for the next
day and see if your battery has held charge . should read 12v

Battery new or old (fluid levels), Charging System and Components, fuses, wiring harnesses, and look for loose or bare wires including lights and wires...good luck this will take some time but worth it in the pocket book.

Want hold a charge


get a test light and a schematic. unplug stator plug.start bike ,make sure battery has full charge. test each pin on connector that is attatched to the 3 yellow wires.should light on each pin. if all good check for burn marks around connectors, front & back sides, and on wires. if no power on yellow wires, stator problem. if power, plug connector together, now test for voltage in wires on the voltage regulator side of the connector, to see if the voltage is making it through the connector.if there is power to volt. regulator,test w/ multi meter across battery leads to see if there is charging voltage to battery,approximately 13-15 volts. if only battery voltage(12.2 or less) while bike is running,voltage regulator is no good.if charging good, but bike wont start after prolonged sitting(say overnight) a system amp draw test is needed to see if something is staying powered up while bike is not running, drawing down battery.
