The bike was unused a long period of time? Did you measured the battery voltage? If the battery is ok should have no less than 12,7-12,8 V. If has less the battery is drained.
Try starting with some strong cables from a car but respect the polarity. If you manage to start it remove cables and take a ohmmeter and measure the charging voltage on the battery terminals. With consumers on ( headlight on ) when idle you should have no less than 13 V and no more than about 15 when accelerate. If you have less than 13 V or more than 15 V the rectifier is the problem. Please reply.

Battery getting discharg and not starting,if started then not taking load,mechanic told me rectifier problem ,tell the solution.

Not knowing all the details my guess would be to replace the alternator. The alternator can have a shorted rectifier which would cause the battery to drain.

How do I test the rectifier on the jonway 150cc.

It's not the rectifier which is the problem as this is part of the charging system. If the rectifier is faulty, the bike will still drive with a good battery till it runs out of power.
Your problem sounds more like a bad starter motor, try push starting the bike to see if it drives.

99 Kawi zx 900c won't crank or start, I've been told that it's either the stator or rectifier, how can I test these parts to be sure

The stator and rectifier are parts of the charging circuit, don't control motor operation. An ohm test will check a stator, you need specs to know what it should be. A rectifier changes ac to dc (I think) and has it's own test, which I forget.
Cranking and starting are battery and ignition and fuel things.

If I run the generator for several hours it will die do to low charge on battery

Check the battery voltage before you start it at the generator. IE 12V start the generator and measure again. It should be around 13.8V if it does not rise, go to the charge rectifier in the genset and make sure you have AC going onto it. (Assuming you have the gen battery charge option) If you don't have ACV you can suspect the B stator windings, if you do have AC. Check the rectifier DC output 13.8V if present check wiring and fuses, if not present change the rectifier, note where the wires go ! The battery is dying because the ignition system of the gen is pulling it down and it is not charging.
