SOURCE: Faulty regulator rectifier- can't start the bike

I have a '07 C90T.
I have just replaced my stator. I replaced the reg/rectifier earlier this year. I replaced the battery one year ago in October.

I firmly believe what started the problem. Two guys that I told I didn't need help, but they pressured me to let them help. They hooked a battery backwards to my bike. A lot of people believe that's what shortened the life of the rectifier and stator.

But keep this in mind. The connections for the regulator/rectifier are not waterproof. I had done a lot of rainy riding and I first found a burnt connector on the discharge side of the reg/rect. My mechanic told me I needed to replace the reg/rect so I did but I soldered the wires and made them waterproof. I didn't do this on the stator side of the reg/rect and a few months later, when the bike quit charging again, I found that connector burnt, so I cut it out and soldered and waterproofed it.

Two days after we got back from a 700 mile round trip to Red River, NM, my bike quit charging again. This time though, I have a voltage meter on the bike, so I was aware of the problem before the bike could strand me someplace. Get one of those btw.
When I checked the old stator after I replaced it, I found the stator good but the pulse signal generator bad. It's required that you replace both btw. You have to, they are joined at the grommet.

Ok well, the battery cost $60 last year and I replaced it myself.
The reg/rect cost $140 through my mechanic and I replaced it myself.
Got the stator online for $173 shipped and they advertise a better stator that puts out 20% more power.
Not counting little things like solder, tape, heatshrink and such, I'm out a little less than $375 on my charging system.
I hope it's a done deal.
Again, some think the problems began when the battery was hooked up wrong, but I lean to believe the sub-standard Suzuki connections may have a hand in this.
Hope this helps. . . Joe

SOURCE: The bike does not charge the battery. After

Battery new or old (fluid levels), Charging System and Components, fuses, wiring harnesses, and look for loose or bare wires including lights and wires...good luck this will take some time but worth it in the pocket book.

SOURCE: Replace regulator/rectifier with a different brand?

Not always necessary to change the regulator/rectifier. Check all connections to make sure they are clean, use a good contact cleaner and finish off with dielectric grease on your electrical connections.
When some bikes get a few years on them the connections get dirty. Check to see if there are any burned or discolored wires anywhere around the regulator. The FIX on some bikes is to cut the connector completely out and solder the wires together and either seal them with heat shrink of a good electrical tape. Loose or bad connections get hot. As long as the regulator and rectifier are working there is no need to replace them if the connections are good.
Ride Safely, Ed

On a 2005 Suzuki C90t bike not charging. Stator and rectifier check out ok?


there is no test for a reg/ rectifier. stator can be checked for resistance and static tested for output. factory service manual will provide details. if stator passes both tests then replace regulator.

I have a 1981 suzuki 750 .the battery goes dead afther one ride .where is the gentor ? how to keep battery charged as i i'm rideing ?


Your generator is on the left as you sit on the bike. The GS/gsx Suzukis do have issues with charging the battery.
1. Charge the battery.
2. Use a multimeter/voltmeter across the battery, do you get 13.5volts dc or more? You may need to rev the bike to 2-3000 revs.
3. If the meter just shows battery voltage, you need to check the regulator/rectifier unit. This will be under the side panel (usually left side) and will be a square metal unit with cooling fins. Check all the connections are clean and rust free, ncluding all the earth connections. Test your charging again.
4. If its still not charging, trace the 3 wires that come from your alternator and connect to your regulator. Disconnect them and use a meter to check between each of the 3 wires. You should get 60-90 volts AC. If not, you need new alternator windings. If you get the correct reading, you need a new regulator rectifier unit.

I have a 1980 suzuki 850 gs and its not charging the battery properly what should i do and where is the charging system located on the engine


As suggested, check the voltage with the engine running accross the battery. If its below 14 volts you have an issue with the stator windings/regulator/rectifier/wiring.
Do the cheapest thing first and clean up all electrical connections, esp the earths.
A manual will tell you how to test the charging system, but the Suzuki GS range has always had charging issues.
The simplist method is to fit the combined reg/rectifier unit from a Honda CB250/400 Superdream.
Always keep your engine oil topped to the max mark, as this cools the stator.
Dont leave this, it is not unknown for the entire system to fail including the CDI if left unchecked.

Battery on 125cc Suzuki GS is ok- but not being charged


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