Question about 1999 Suzuki GSX 1300 R Hayabusa
I have a 1999 Hayabusa. I have now replaced the stater, the reg/rec., and the battery(3 times). I can ride the bike for about 30 mins shut it off and it wont restart because a dead battery. What could be causing the battery to not hold charge or what is draining the battery?
Check your bridge rectifier for a bad diode leaking power to ground.

Sounds as if your charging system is not operating, OR you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Might try charging the battery to full charge, crank the bike and while at idle, put voltmeter on the battery. Read the voltage, then, move throttle to high idle and see if there is an increase in volts. If not, charging system is problem. Might want to check all your fuses and any circuit breakers you may have.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
With the IGN switch off, the only electrical device directly connected to the battery is the regulator. If the battery would not hold charge/discharging, then this would be the most likely suspect. Two ways to confirm/check:
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

You need to have stator coil tested.
An alternate problem could be the regulator/rectifier.
Both of these should tbe checked by a dealer

Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

SOUND LIKE VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS NOT WORKING CHARG BATTERY AND GET VOLT METER AND START IT UP AND HOLD RPM AT 1500 AND YOU SHOUL BE SHOWING 13.95 OR MOOR HOPE THIS HELP IF NOT AT LEAST 13.5 VOLTS THEN YOU MAY HAVE BAD VOLTAGE REGULATOR
