Sounds like your regulator/rectifier is faulty....but it could also indicate an alternator problem. Don't run the bike or it will eventually hurt your battery and/or your alternator (if it hasn't already.)

The wire currents, voltages, etc needs to be checked (from the alternator AND from the rectifier) so I recommend you take the bike to a mechanic unless you have a multimeter and shop manual handy.

I've found Yamaha wiring connections to be slightly weak....and sometimes lead to the premature death of the reg.rectifier. Solution was to 'solder' the connections instead.

Good luck with the FZR.

Battery wont charge


If it won't charge on a battery charger it may need electrolytes or the battery is shot. If the bike won't maintain a charge it could be the voltage regulator or the generator stator.

Bike wont stay running


If the bikes charging system is not working there will be no power to the coils, and no spark (once the battery is drained). Try putting a good, fully charged battery in the bike and check the charging system.

There are certainly several things that could cause the symptoms you describe. Based on the information you have provided that is what I would check first.
