Check the lighting coil on the stator for power,check main fuses,check voltage regulator,Have the battery tested to insure it's good.

Test for charging system of gsx 600f

A general procedure for all charging systems is to begin with a voltmeter connected to the battery. charge your battery, with everything off you should read 12 to 13.2 volts. Turn your key/bike on and note the voltage over like 15 seconds. It shouldn't drop a whole lot, if it does your battery may be suspect (motorcycle batteries don't last long unless you buy a better "dry type).
Next, start the bike, the voltage should move up to around 14-15 volts or a little more, and stay steady, and increase a little if you take the engine up to like 2000rpm. If it doesn't change at all, or if it goes way up, or fluctuates, you need to look into your charging system. Give this a try and write back your results. Best of luck

My 1998 cbr rr honda motorcycle battery is not charging

Do you own a volt meter?

Get a voltage reading from the battery while the bike is off (the resting voltage). A short cell should prevent you from ever reading anything more then 10.5 volts. If the battery is 12.2 volts or less, it's discharged. Fully charged is 12.8 volts.

Next, start the bike (or jump start it if the battery is down) and take a voltage reading while the bike is on. The Voltage should go as high as 14.8 volts. That's normal. If the battery is down, it will have to climb up to that point.

I got this info from here.

This seems sure that the charging system is faulty but to make sure that the batttery is storing power it is important to check the cell gravity of the battery. If sealed then you can charge and leave is aside for about 12 hours and check on the bike to start easily. If not there is internal discharge on the battery.
Next you can check on the charging voltage using a multimeter with the bike running, Check the increase of voltage when the engine is Revd. if this is not seen then the alternator or the voltage rectifier/regulator is faulty.

I have a 2000 r6 and the other day when I was riding the bike it started to lose power and mis fire then all of a sudden it was ok and made it home. I turned the bike off then tried to start it again but...

Check voltage at the battery terminals. it should be approx 13-14 volts when running at about 2000 revs. these are not specific to your bike , these numbers may be as high as 14.7volts or 3000 revs. revs are usually at just above idle. If the voltage at the battery terminals is below 13 you have a problem with your alternator or regulator/rectifier. Incidentally the battery voltage is DC.

Wont start batteerry checked ok , if i jump it with cables it starts , but will not start again the next day

the battery may seem ok, but it's obviously discharging itself or not charging during riding.

Try this...charge the battery with a battery charger.
disconnect the charger, and put a volt meter on the battery.
Start the bike.
Rev up to 2000 RPM. If the voltage is not HIGHER than it was before starting the bike, there's something wrong with the charging circuit.
If it IS charging, turn the bike off, and disconnect the battery overnight.
If the bike will not start the next day after reconnecting the battery, the battery needs to be replaced.

If the battery is NOT charging at 2000 RPM, the charging circuit is bad, and is likely what is draining the battery overnight.

All at once my honda won't crank. I've recharged the battery but it just gives a clicking noise when I try to crank it and I believe its drained the battery from this ??

battery more than three years old? get a new one, and don't even mess around with trickle charging it has a bad cell and you can confirm this the next time it dies on you check voltage, if it reads 12.3v or less its definitely bad. if your positive that the battery is good showing a charge of 12.5v or more then its probably your voltage regulator going can check this by starting the bike and rev the bike to 4k and watch the voltage climb up to @14.5 v and then get regulated down to @ 13.0v..this is a properly running charging system.

Put in a new battery and rode bike couple of timesthen bike does not start up appears dead. please help with advice. david R.

Sounds like the charging system doesn't.

Fully charge the battery, measure its voltage, put it in the bike, start the bike, run the engine at 1,800 to 2,000 RPM. Measure the voltage on the battery (let's say it is 12.2V). If the voltage is not higher than the battery's voltage was before you put it in (12.2V in the sample number I pulled out of thin air, above), the charging system does not work at all. If the voltage is higher than what you measured, but is not 13.8 volts or higher, the charging system seems to work some, but not enough. Perhaps the voltage regulator is malfunctioning, or the alternator has a bad diode.

Problem with charging system on 1993 softail every time i ride it have to charge battery for the next time have had new battery lights on dash but wont kick over is there spose to be any other wires to the...

Here is a few tests you can run. First with the bike off take a multimeter in VDC check the battery voltage at the battery. (should be at 12.5 VDC) If not first charge the battery. Second start the bike, with it running and multimeter again in VDC check voltage at the battery while slowly opening the throttle(should see between 13.2 and 14.5 VDC at the battery) If you have more then 15 VDC then you have a bad voltage regulator. If you have less then battery voltage from the first test. You may have a bad stator and/or a bad voltage regulator. Third test with bike turned off and multimeter in continuity. Place one meter lead into either of the two holes for your stator lead(coming out of the front of the primary drive case) the other meter lead to any good ground. If you get a tone or continuity then you have a grounded stator, and it has to be replaced before proceding any further with charging system tests. If you do NOT have continuity then check the wires from the voltage regulator running back to the battery for any breaks or chaffing, if none are found. I would have the battery load tested as well.Good Luck and thanks for usinf Let me know what you find please.

08 650 executive, new battery but charging system doesn't charge

Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.

Charging problem

have a voltmeter to check battery ?

place meter on battery terminals without bike running

what voltage ?

then start the bike whats idle voltage and 1200rpm voltage?

Note use the DC setting on meter an follow polarity + red - Neg

doing this will tell you if bike is charging or battery had its day
