After you start the bike put the headlight on high beam. Rev the engine and the light should get a bit brighter. If it stays the same or dims the battery is discharging.

If you have a meter, take off the seat and start the bike. Place the meter in DC Voltage mode and place the red probe on the + side of the battery and the - probe on the negative side. It should read 12v to 14v. Start the bike. The voltage should rise to over 13V or at least higher than it read when the bike is not running. If you rev the engine the voltage should also rise a 1/2 volt or so.

If the voltage remains the same or decreases you have a charging problem. Here are the two most likely fixes.

Tighten the battery connections.
The rectifier is not working. It is located on the right rear of the bike under the seat fairing.The rectifier converts the AC voltage coming out of the alternator to DC voltage which is what the battery needs to stay charged.

You either have a bad stator or regulator/rectafier

Put a charger on the battery for two or three hours. Now start the bike up and use a voltmeter to measure the voltage across the two battery terminals while the engine is running around 2000 rpm. The meter should read around 14 volts. If not, the charging system needs to be checked. If the charging system is working properly then yes, something is draining the battery. You will need to check all the wiring and switches to locate the source.

the regulator only keeps the voltage regulated to about 13v charge for the battery no matter what speed you ride..if the regulator did not work correctly you might start to burn out light bulbs. So when you put in the new regulator make sure your battery is at least at 12.3v minimum if not you will have to push start it and ride it for about 15 minutes on an open highway to charge the battery back up to at least 12.6v-12.7v...13v is perfect. (if none of your other fuses blew then all other electrics should work), so i would double check all of your fuses just to make sure.

I have a 1988huricane 600 with a charging system


Charging fault as the running engine will produce current if magneto / alterantor is working. Check charge rate with multimeter across battery terminals = 13.8v - 14.5v at just above idle. Some are up to 16.5V at 5000rpm, but you will need to check against your manul.
