If the battery is 2 years old or more it may be bad. Add water to each battery cell so that the plates are covered by the water. Charge the battery with a 1amp or 2 amp charger for about 5 hours. If it will not hold a charge then replace the battery.

At the site below you can download a free PDF service manual for your bike. The manual will tell you how to check the electrical components. It will tell you how to rebuild the engine as well, but save the rebuilding until next month. :)

Hi!

Yepp, since you replaced the generator and you checked the cables, there cant be anything else, the battery is out of time and wont charge.
And its easy to check, take the bike to a repaire shop and let them measure the power your new generator gives, it takes 1 minit to check that and they wont charge you for it ( if they are nice guys ). But i will say that you need a new battery.

How can I tell Which Year My GSF 400K is?


Everything you want to know about the bike can be found in the VIN number (letter). In this case pay attention to the 10th digit (reading left to right). This may help too: http://www.suzukicycles.org/Bandit-series/GSF400-Bandit.shtml

Battery goes flat whilst bike running


A couple possible problems: 1. Battery is old and sulfonated preventing the charge to hold. 2. Stator has gone south and needs replacing, Both can be checked by a competent mechanic.

Most stators are 3 phase, meaning each positive wire produces up to 14.4 volts or close. Using a multimeter each wire can be checked. I don't know the model of your bike but usually leads from the rectifier are close to the battery but don't have to be. The rectifier converts AC from the stator to DC to charge the battery. Check each leg before and after the rectifier with a multimeter. If any leg doesn't produce more than 13v the the rectifier needs replacing.

The most common problem is the 3-wire connector being burnt between the stator and regulator/rectifier. It has also been commonly reported that the regulator/rectifier and/or stator may need replacement.
