SOURCE: 2005 Ultra Clasic volt at idle is 10.5 @ 2500 it reads 12.

Use a voltmeter hand held NOT that goofy guage on your dash see if their is a difference. HD can slap a meter on it in a jiffy. Idle should be around 13 AND 2000 RPM 14....I have put regulators in that were bad out of the box...Stater have not had a bad one from the box yet. knock on wood.

SOURCE: Battery went flat even after riding for hours.

voltage should show 13 volts to 14.5 volts looks like u have regulator fault maybe bad earth on regulator or bad connection on push plugs on the cables from regulator

SOURCE: why is my 2006 street bob not charging

If the regulator was replaced and wasn't properly grounded it will not charge.

Sounds like you had a cell in the battery short out temporarily. We call this an "intermittent short". Take the battery to an automotive parts house and ask them if they can test the battery for you. If the battery is over two years old, they are subject to do this. The reason, vibration mostly but on some bikes like the Softail that has the battery in the middle of the horseshoe oil tank, heat is a factor as well. Sometimes an intermittent short will not show up in a load test. If it continues to do this, I'd just replace the battery.

The reason I say this is if one cell shorts, the voltage of the battery drops. How much it drops depends on which cell shorts. The battery is made up of six 2-volt cell wired in series. Depending on which cell shorts the voltage out of the battery can vary from nothing to 10 volts when the cell shorts.

Good Luck

Ok, let's check the charging system. The battery is easy. Take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. If the battery is over two years old, it could need replacing.

Once you're sure the battery is good and it is FULLY CHARGED, we can test the rest of the system. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check the system. With the battery back in the bike, connect the DVOM across the battery. Red meter lead to the positive terminal of the battery, black meter lead to the negative. Put the meter's function selector switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLTS or greater. Start the bike and bring it to a high idle. The meter should read 14.5 - 15.0 volts.

Now, to test the stator, follow the wires from your regulator down to where it goes into the engine cases. Disconnect the connector and look into the engine side of it. You'll see two metal contacts down in there. Set you meter's function selector to AC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch each one of the metal contacts down in the engine side of the connector with a meter probe. It makes not difference since we're measuring AC voltage at this point. The meter should read at least 30 volts.

Now, if the alternator (stator test) does not put out at least thirty volts, the stator is bad and needs to be replaced. If the alternator does check good but not enough voltage at the battery, your regulator may be the culprit. Make sure all connections are clean and tight and that the body of the regulator is grounded good. Recheck the test at the battery. If it still fails, replace the regulator.

Now, I've seen may problems such as your's that are intermittant. In other words, the problem is here on minute and gone the next. I fought that on one bike for over a year until we finally replaced the entire charging system and fixed it. If your bike proves to be doing that, you may wish to consider that option. Fix the thing and be done with it. I wouldn't buy the rotor, just the stator and the regulator.

Good Luck

Testimonial: "right on with the test procedure. Battery didn't show it was charging. While the stator test showed 30vac, an ohm test showed it was grounded. Thanks "

Testing voltage regulator

ENGINE OFF,UNPLUG the regulator, test continuity from each conductor to ground on the stator, if you have continuity STATOR IS SHORTED... if you test voltage OUTPUT at the stator, it should be around ten volts AC! NOT DC! per thousand RPM... THEN use a 12 volt test lite from regulator leads to ground, if ANY light happens at either lead, BAD regulator

How do you trouble shoot the charging system on 1983 shovelhead? Im getting nothing to the battery. Is there a way to check the stator to see if it is generating the proper voltage?

The stator should have no connection to the engine. In other words, using an ohm meter, you should have infinite resistance from any of the stator wires to ground. Open circuit voltage from the stator can be anything from 25 volts up depending on year. If it is a two wire stator, connect a 100 watt 12 volt lamp across the stator wires with engine idling and lamp should light fairly bright, at a fast idle, maybe 1800 to 2000 rpm, lamp should be very bright and may even blow. If all ok up to this, then regulator is more than likely faulty. Of course, all wiring from stator to regulator to battery needs to be checked. Any resistance from stator to ground will require stator to be replaced or regulator will be damaged. If lamp lights dimly or not at all and stator resistance is o/k (very low ohms between the stator wires), then magnets on rotor may have detached and broken up or rotor is loose on crankshaft.

My Rm 250 wont spark need to know the volts from stator to cdi plug. Got brand new cdi, stator , rotor and pick up coil but it still wont spark.

The Voltage From The Stator To The CDI Should Be Around 40 Volts(AC) At Cranking Speed. Be Sure Your Meter Is Set For (AC) Not (DC). The CDI Changes The (AC) Input Voltage To (DC) Output Voltage To The Primary Terminal At The Coil. An Electrical Shock Hazard Exist If Stator Voltage Is Checked With Engine Running. Always Perform This Test At Cranking Speed (R.P.M.) For SAFETY. 120 Volts (AC) Can Be Present With Engine Running.

Jet 3 Ultra, batteries 1 yr old, charge voltage only 26.3 volts output from onboard charger when batts drained after extended use. After charging overnight, batts are 12 volts each, but chair goes 1.5...

Mark Batteries your charger is putting our enuf 13.15 volts for each battery so after charging all night you should be reading about 13 volts on each. If your batts are only 12 volts after all night charge then batteries are weak Hope this helps

My battery is good and i road it for bout 2 hrs then came to stop and now it wont stay running unless i jump start it

You may need to clean connectors on battery wires ,or replace a fuse. The charge depleating could also be caused by a bad stator, stator wire conection or voltage regulator. after battery is charged test volts at battery while running, they should raise when rpms are increased to 1500 or 2000 or so, idle voltage may be 12 volts with rpms raised volts should go up to as much as 14.8 or so if all is well.if not keep looking for the problem from volt reg. back to stator .also stator output is AC and regulator output is DC.

Have a 2000 springer,was riding and it shut power...i replaced battery and it fired up...cked voltage output and it was 14.5 v..ran good for about a week..then the battery started smokin.. so...

Sounds like the CDI was bad to begin with not the stator. The stator puts out unregulated power. The CDI regulates the voltage output as well as sends power to the coils. Hope this helps...

1985 GS700E How would one check to make sure the

To check if the battery or rather the bike's charging system is ok is to run the engine and connect the volt meter to the battery terminals , red to positive and black to negative and thn get the reading as to the rate the charging system is charging should be at around 13.5 to 14volts!
If its not thn theres a problem to the charging system of your bike.
Hope this helps!

Charging problem 1991 volvo 240

14.6 means your voltage regulator or diode is suspect Despite having new alternator .Ive cross refrenced your smptoms in the haynes workshop manual and alternator is your only end answer.The haynes test is to start vehicle with multi meter connected across the battery terminals,increase the engine speed until the reading remains steady should be approximately 12 to 13v and no more than 14v.switch on as many accessories as possible(headlights heater blower radio etc)check that the alternator maintains the regulated voltage at around 13 to 14v.If the regulated voltage is not as stated then alternator is to be repaired/replaced.Good luck with it and a happy new year.

Stupid Question but are all your wires clean and tight connections? Also make sure your batt ground is good too. R1's can be picky like that.
