I'm thinking your battery is the wrong ah. 8.6 for that type motorcycle is quite low. I would expect around 12 - 14 ah. Actually you should not be draining the battery though. The problem may be in the alternator assy its self. Have you checked all three legs of the charging system coming from the stator? I have found the stator to be the culprit many times in this situation. The bike should not be draining the battery at all if the alternator is charging correctly. What was the oem battery ah that you replaced?

Where did you get the stator?? If not factory... You might want to us a volt meter and measure the resistance. You can find the resistance specs in its honda service manual. Give some more info!!

look for 3 wires coming from the stator to the regulator, the same color, these should be the 3 phases of the stator and any pair of these should put out maybee 50v AC, with the bike running.
Also each pair of these should have similar resistance(engine stopped)and none grounded to earth
Then put the volt meter across the battery, it should read somwhere around 14 v DC with the engine running.
No AC -stator problem
Yes AC, No DC- regulator problem
Voltages can vary between makes and models, but hopefully this is the simple explanation

check between the three yellow stator wires in volts AC. should be 16-32 per 1000rpm. also check continuity to ground from a yellow wire. make sure there is a good ground. the regulator has 12 tests on diode mode. black to each yellow, it should be around.560 vdc then reverse leads and should get OL. then repeat for red to each yellow. if any results are different, your rectifier is no good, if stator measures good, rectifier is good, and all grounds and terminals are clean and tight, the regulator is junk.
