Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Battery Test:
The battery needs to be a fully charged and load tested to ensure proper readings, connections need to be clean and tight. If you are not working with a fully charged and functional battery, all other voltage tests will be incorrect. Standing battery Voltage should be 12.5-13.2 DCV.
2. Charging System Voltage Test:
Start motorcycle, measure DC volts across the battery terminals you should have a reading of approximately 13.2-15 DC Volts.
3. Connections and wires:
Inspect the regulator stator plug, and check the battery terminals for connection corrosion. If everything seems to be in order, move on to number 4 below to determine if there's a failed component.
4. Stator Checks/Rotor Check: Each of the following tests isolates the Stator & Rotor. If AC output and resistance test fail and stator test passes then the rotor is at fault (Pull Primary covers and inspect rotor for damage).
5. AC Output Check:
Unplug the regulator plug from the stator start motorcycle and change Voltmeter to AC volts. Probe both stator wires with your meter lead. The motorcycle should be putting out approximately 18-20 ACV per 1,000 rpm. Reading will vary depending on system, check service manual specification
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
32 amp system produces about 16-20 VAC per 1,000 rpm
45 amp system produces about 19-26 VAC per 1,000 rpm
Stator Resistance Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale. Probe each stator wires with meter leads and check resistance on the meter.
Resistance should be in the range of 0.1-0.5 Ohms. Reading will vary depending on the system, check the service manual for specifications.
Generic Specs:
22 amp system produces about 0.2 to 0.4 ohms
32 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
45 amp system produces about 0.1 to 0.2 ohms
5. Stator Ground Check:
Switch your multimeter to Ohm x 1 scale.
Probe each stator wire with your positive lead on the multimeter and the negative to ground.
There should be no continuity to ground on either wire.
If there is continuity your stator is shorted to ground and must be replaced.
6. Regulator Test:
Each of the following tests isolates the regulator only, so if any of these tests fail, the regulator is at fault.
Identifying Wires:
Battery Charge Lead- Wire going from the regulator to battery positive.
AC output leads- Wires coming from the Stator to the regulator.
Ground- Wire from Regulator to ground or regulator may be grounded via the physical bolting to chassis.
Regulator Ground Test: Ensure the regulator body is grounded or grounding wire is fastened tightly to a good ground (you should verify this by checking continuity from the regulator body to chassis ground).
Fwd/Reverse Bias Test/Diode Test:
This check is testing the Diode function to ensure it is regulating the AC current for the stator into DC Current.
Switch multimeter to Diode Scale.
Place your Multimeter positive lead on each AC output wire.
Place your multimeter negative lead on the battery Charge wire.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the AC output wires and the Positive lead on the Battery Charge Wire. The reading should be Infinite. With your meter on the same setting, place your multimeter positive lead on the regulator ground wire or to the regulator directly, and then place your meter negative lead on the AC output leads.
The meter should read voltage typically around .5 volts.
Next, switch your multimeter leads putting the negative lead on the regulator ground and the Positive lead on the AC output wires. The reading should be Infinite.
Note: Below is a table to show the readings:
Positive Lead Negative Lead Reading
AC output 1 Battery charge lead Voltage
AC output 2 Battery Charge Lead Voltage
Battery charge lead AC output 1 ?
Battery charge lead AC output 2 ?
Ground AC output 1 Voltage
Ground AC output 2 Voltage
AC output 1 Ground ?
AC output 2 Ground ?

SOURCE: I have a Honda Rebel 250cc 1995 model.The battery

you will find with the age of the bike that the coil is probably caput. this camn be changed with a lot of brute force and ignorance. it is behind the crank housing and will only come off with a crank puller, this should solve your probs.

SOURCE: battery wont stay charged

Ok this is probably one of two things either you have a bad earth on the bike causing a poor re charge rate or your alternator / magneto has gone up the spout ?.
If it is a bad earth you will probably be getting other symptons as well for insatnce rear bulbs blowing or headlight bulbs blowing ..horn or starter ( if fitted ) works intermittently you get the picture . check around the bike to all points where the loom attaches to the frame or the engine ( usually black wire bolted to earth ..= frame ) remove and check wires then clean the area it was attached to with a bit of sand paper / emery cloth and refit especially the one from the battery Minus side Black ?. that will go straight to frame somewhere . If it stays the same after you do this you need to check the output of the magneto . with the bike running place a multimeter on the battery terminals voltages should be any where between 12.volts to 13.5 or higher check specs in manuel if not then Magneto / dynamo / alternator faulty finaly if all else fails ( and this was left till last as you said it was new check the ph of the battery ie sometimes new battries should be full of acid but are not .. just water I have had a few .. especially if they are the none maintanance type . .. hope this helps Regards vortash

SOURCE: Kawasaki Mule 3010, keeps getting flat battery, wont jump start

Sometimes when the battery keeps going dead like that, a component may be creating a current draw. you can do a simple current draw test with a fluke meter by setting the meter to read amps, make sure the test leads are in the proper portals on the fluke for an amp test, and disconnect one of the battery cables and connect the test leads in-line with the battery and cable. It would help to know you have a good fuse inside the fluke. They are easy to blow, and whatever you do, DO NOT try to start the unit with the meter hooked up for the amp draw test. That is how fuses are blown. With the key off, check for any amp draw. If there is, you can start unplugging components until the draw goes away. If there was no draw to begin with, you may have a stator coil (or alternantor, whichever it has) that is weak and can't keep up.

SOURCE: indicators and horn stopped working

have you checked the switchs?..all wires are on them..& 1st check the fuse as not blown...the regultor charges the battery....so if the battery is fully charged the indicators & horn should still work..i would look for a wireing fault 1st...hope this helps

I have a 97 Honda CBR 1100 xx Super Blackbird. What fuel should she be running - leaded or unleaded?


Leaded fuel is not sold anymore. Unleaded is the only choice you have. On a sport bike I might run the higher octane fuel for a little better performance.

My blackbird has a new reg & bat and on my meter is charging ok..but the bat goes flat why


HI, FIRST THING TO CHECK IS, DOES THE BATTERY LOSES CHARGE WHEN IT IS DISCONECTED FROM THE BIKE, NOT THAT UNUSUAL TO HAVE A FAULTY BATTERY.
SECONDLY WHEN REPLACING THE BATTERY WITH THE KEY TURNED OFF DO YOU HAVE ANY SIGN OF DRAIN IN RESPECT OF A SPARK AT THE LEADS WHEN YOU TOUCH THE LIVE OR EARTH TO THE BATTERY POLE, THIS WOULD INDICATE A DRAIN

hi, i have a problem with my cbr 1100 xx 98model with a rough running,spluttering in just highway speeds when im crusing,it starts easy warm or cold and runs fine on idle and runs nice up to 60 kmh and runs fine after 6or7000 rpm and up to rev limiter but difficoult crusing 60 up to relative high speeds in high gears. runs fine in low gears in town. the fuelconsumtion seams to be some high at crusing speed that indicates that is rich mixture but it runs better at crusing speed if i pull the chocke a little that indicates lean mixture, i know this sound stupid but this is true so i was thinking the fuel is not properly mix with the air, more like drops than mix with air maybe? sparkplugs looks nice light brown. carbs and petcock have be cleaned many times, new sparkplugs, the ht leads looks good. it changes the speed it splutter at to higher speed if i shim the needles higher but if they too high i can almost not take off bcoz too much fuel at small trottleopening and black smoke from the exaust, my bike dnt have needles with groves for a clip thats why i shim them instead. a bikemechanic friend he told he have some simelar problem on a yamaha tdm 850 before and first when he change the nozzle in the carb that the needle goes in to it was cured, the nozzles was oval worn he told and its a problem on downdraft carbs he thinks, but on the xx carbs the nozzle is not specified as sparepart and its pressed in to the carbbody, my nozzle looks a little bit oval on atleast 2 of the carbs if looking closely or maybe only imagination in my eyes, im not sure. do someone had problem with the nozzles in the carbs before? i have cleaned the carbs and petcock many times, the airfilter is some dirthy but its worse without filter so its for sure not bcoz of the filter, the bike have a twobros 4in1 exaust and i have try 140,145 and 150 mainjets,but the problem is not with mainjet circut i think for sure. i had be very happy if someone could have a solution for this bcoz the bike is only irritating to use now and have be more or less the same all the time since i bought it. hope someone can help get my bird flying as it should do! thanks in advance!
