Question about 1997 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm
The alternator works fine i have put a new battery in it, but the battery keeps dieing after a few hours use. any ideas????? cheers
Biggest problem with Firestorms is the voltage regulator overheats and burns out, remove the seat cowling and check the wiring and unit. Newer ones have a heatsink built into them if you need to replace, checking the pulse generator is easy, measure the resistance between the 3 yellow wires that plug into the reg, they should all be between 0.2 and 0.5 Ohm

Yepp, i know whats wrong. Its the generator on your bike that dosent work properly. The generator dosen charge your battery. So when your drive the engine, the lights, the flash etc take all the power of the battyre and since the genarator coulden charge it properly it dies.
Buy a new, or if you can find a used, generator and replace it, alternative take the generator to someone that can pull it appart and replace the coals in it. Sometimes thats more expensive to change the coals then it is to buy a used one.
Good luck with your bike
