I think you should consider a battery maintainer ... a low out put battery charger.

SOURCE: bad regulator?

Fuse 2 is actually the fuse from the regulator to the battery (see schematic below) - so if it's blown then you are not charging the battery. Put the correct fuse in - if it blows again, you may have a shorted regulator. Unplug both connections to the regulator: With your test meter set to 'ohms' check in turn between each of the three yellow wires in the 3-pin connector to both the red & blacks in the 4 pin connector (the two reds are already connected to each other, as are the two blacks). Also check between the reds & the blacks. None of these should readings be 'short' (zero ohms). Inspect the wiring at the three-pin connector - if the bike's harness looks charred/burned that is a sign the regulator has shorted. There is possibility it could have taken the stator with it. Incidentally, the cable that plugs into the three pin connector - that should be a replacement auxiliarry harness: the original was deemed too small gauge for the job & was replaced with the auxiliary one as a recall. You should find that cable is stand-alone from the main bike harness and you can follow it back to the stator output connection. At both ends you should find the connectors of the original harness that is 'laced' into the complete harness. If you do not find that auxiliary harness, you need to get it. You should be able to get it at no charge from Triumph if the records on your VIN show it was never supplied.

SOURCE: Battery not charging

it will either be a stator problem or your regulator rectifier has gone down , id say most likely to be the regulator rectifier ., not really a good way to test these with a meter its just a case of check what readings you are getting from the stator if they are ok fit a new regulator ,your regulator is a square peice of metal with lots of cooling fins on it , here is a idea of what it will look like as this one is on ebay im unsure if it is the right one for your exact bike as i dont know year and model code etc , but should give you a idea what your looking for .

SOURCE: my honda vt1100 c2 starting problem

If you can hear the starter run, but no motor turning, the starter clutch is going bad. It is what allows the motor to turn over with the starter, and it idles while the bike is running.

SOURCE: 1993 Kawasaki 750R - Charging issue - Weird!!!

i know this sounds silly ,but when you bought the battery had it been activated,new batterys are critical in their first charge and you cannot use a standare type automotve charger,if bought dry the battery needs to have the acid filled ,left to sit for at least 2 hours prior to charging,once it has sat for the 2 hrs with the acid in,the new battery will need to be charged with a "cteck"or similar type charger for at least 13 hrs before it can be put into normal service,what happened with yours i think is that sure you gave it a charge but it has only recieved a "surface charge"and will be usable for a very short time,it may recover for a brief period and go again untill the surface charge dissipates,(or in other words ..runs out of charge)best thing you can do with the battery is take it to a auto electrician and have the battery cycled and conditioned,this is not expensive to do and will give you piece of mind,after conditioning the battery shouldngive excellent service,i have the battery in my goldwing coditioned about every 12 months and i have the same battery that was in the bike when i bought the bike 8 years ago and still no electrical or battery problems(costs about $25 to get it done)once a year but that beats $280 for a new one...hope this helps

SOURCE: my new battery keeps draining

did you check what the charging current it? look in the manual on how you can hook up a meter to measure the charging current thats actually going into the battery when its charging. if thats correct then, u might have a leak or something.

Hi im having problems with my 1995 kawasaki ninja zx-6r,my battery is brand new and after riding for a while my bike just dies out and when i try to start it back up the battery is drained


hello carl...sounds like you might have a charging system problem. If you have a volt meter you can check it out. You can test at the battery. With the meter leads, red on positive, black on negative, you should have 13.5-14.5 volts direct current with engine at 3500 RPM. I hope this helps.

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

My 636 wont start on the button, it was as if my battery was dead but i took the battery off put it on the charger and it was fully charged, what is wrong with my bike


Sounds like you might have a faulty starter solenoid.trace the positive battery cable till you find it connected to a small canister.When you press your starter this should click.To confirm this take a meter that reads volts DC and have someone press the starter,you should have at least 12 volts going into the solenoid and 12 volts coming out.It will be the larger cable. Also check the two smaller wires for power,these are the ones that send the power from the button that activate the solenoid,closing the circuit ,sending power to the starter.Hope this helps good luck

2005 ZX 636 will not start


Have you drained the old petrol from the carbs? Do this by way of the drain screw at the bottom of each carb.
As long as there is a spark it should now fire-up

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

Engine swap 04 zx10r on a 06 zx 636 f


The frame mounting points are completely different. A zx 636 frame wraps around the motor where as a zx10r frame goes directly over the motor. That's how they keep the zx10r nimble enough to feel like a 600cc sport bike. But in this day and age if you have enough time and money you can accomplish anything. Honestly it's just easier to sell your 6 and buy a 1 liter.
