How to check charging


If your battery is not good even though you might get a surface charge that is okay it will likely not charge sufficiently to operate the starter and other electrical systems of the bike.

The connection where the alternator stator wires plug into the regulator could be corroded/dirty and need to be cleaned and sprayed with electrical contact cleaner and protected with dielectric grease because corroded wires going to the battery or alternator from the stator or the regulator will affect the ability of the charging system to properly charge a battery.

Initially check the voltage with a voltmeter across the battery posts at about 2000 rpm. If it is between about 14.3 and 15 VDC it is charging okay If it is above 15 VDC you have an overcharging problem which is not being properly controlled by the regulator. If it is charging at less than that you could check the regulator ground first by running a wire from the regulator frame or body directly to the battery negative post and if that does not increase the charging voltage then the ground is okay so next you could check the stator integrity.

To check the STATOR. Turn ignition key switch OFF, then disconnect the voltage regulator connector from alternator stator wiring. THEN connect an ohmmeter set on the RX1 scale with one lead into either of the stator sockets and the other lead to a good ground. And test for continuity - a good stator will show no continuity (0 ohms) across either stator socket - any other reading indicates a grounded stator which must be replaced. THEN remove the ground lead and insert lead it into the other stator socket - the resistance (with ohmmeter still set on the RX1 scale)should be 0.1-0.2 ohms - if the resistance is lower a stator short is indicated. Which means that the stator is damaged and must be replaced. - if the resistance is higher (OL on meter), an open is indicated and again, the stator is damaged and must be replaced. You should check socket 1 to 2 then 1 to 3 then 2 to 3.
Before testing short out the ohmmeter leads against each other and if they do not produce a reading of0 ohms subtract the reading you do get from any readings you get doing the stator checks in order to get accurate stator circuit readings, otherwise you may have out of range reading due to the internal and/or lead resistance of the ohmmeter.

Checking or replacing stator


OR A VOLTAGE REGULATOR,IF THE STATOR IS BAD,IT WONT CHARGE CHECK THE FUSE,BATTERY CONNECTIONS ARE CLEAN,ALL WIRING IS TIGHT, AND HAVE VOLTAGE REGULATOR CHECKED.

Have right parts but connection is wrong on stator for rsp on kenmore oasis mod, 110.27087603 rsp #10183157 and stator #10419333


W10183157 is the proper one for this machine. If you removed the stator did you maybe get the plug behind the staor when you installed it and can not see it now? Just asking

I left my goldwing runnin g on full choke by accident came back a hour later now my battery is not getting a charge what did i do


Leaving the choke on should have nothing to do with the bike charging. The only possibility is that it did overheat diodes or the stator inside of the alternator. It does has a stator and diodes but both are inside of the alternator. You probably have to have the alternator checked and may have to replace it.

I have a charging problem on a 06 mod harley davidson street bob.how do i test the alternator?


AHHHH the old charging system problems, lol.

Your stator is located on the left side of the engine (as your sitting on it), behind your primary(behind your compensating sprocket, and rotor). Yes, this is a little complicated to diagnose but I will try my best to help you out.

1. Start your bike, and put your multimeter on your battery(black to neg. and red to pos.).
2. at idle you may read 11.5-13.5 Volts, this is normal. now when you rev the engine to 3000 RPM your Voltage should jump to no more than 14.7 or very close to it. If it stays low It could be either your stator or regulator. If its way higher, you need a new regulator. But first, lets test the stator. Turn the engine off.

Locate the stator wires directly in front of your oil filter, see it going into the inner primary?? Ok follow those wires to the regulator, in fron of the frame kind of by the oil filter and front motor mount, but connected to the frame. OK, go it?? Unplug the stator from the regulator. Now your gonna be testing the stator so dont even worry about the regulator. Now that you have the wires from the staor in your hands ( your hands should be filthy by now, lol)

1. Set your multimeter to Volts AC. Youll be going to about less than 100 VAC so set it max off 100 or 200.
2. Remember that this is a 3 phase system so you should 3 pins, so youll have 3 readings, Pin 1-2, pin 1-3, and pin 2-3.

3. Touch your mutlimeter probes to pins 1 and to pin 2, with the engine on and at idle, you should be about 20-30 VAC around there.
4. As you rev the engine, you should jump about 20 VAC per 1000 RPM. This means that at 3000 RPM you should be reading about 60-70 VAC. Do this test with the other pins. Pin 1-2, pins 1-3, pins 2-3. You should have about the same readings on all of them, and, your readings should be steady, and not drop off or gain alot.
5. Remember about 20 VAC per 1000 RPM. But, dont go over 3000 Rpm.

Results:
1. If the AC voltage at the stator is steady at 3000 RPM at about 60 VAC., but, battery voltage stays at 13V at 3000 RPM with stator and regulator hooked up, You got a bad regulator.
2. If your not getting a good AC voltage from the stator, your stator is bad.
3. If the AC voltage from your stator changes drastically as you go up in RPM (meaning as you slowly go up in RPM the AC Voltage goes from 10 Volts to 60 Volts back down to 20 volts.) You have a bad rotor.

Thats pretty much the basics, lol. Also open your clutch cover and smell your primary, if its an overwhelming disgusting burnt smell, and your clutch is working. 99.9% you have a burned stator and needs replaced.

On my 2000 zx12r my battery drains and bike shuts down while riding. Battery is new stator rebuilt and used regulator. What could be still causing this issue?


Hi,,,if your battery is not charging and you have a rebuilt staor,,then your regulator/rectifier is the cause,,its job is to charge the battery.

Syators keep shorting out after 500 miles first it went dead chgd the battery then the altenator then the stator 500 miles later the same thing. the stator went out replacrd it. 500 niles later the same...


i would check the regulator/rectifier. also, make sure all connectors are good and that wires aren't shortng out. check the wires for insulation breakdown or cracks.

Regulator..battery in good condition..not charging when running


Check the stator first. Remove the stator to regulator plug on the left side front of the engine. Test for ground short between the pins and engine case. There should be infinate resistance between pin and ground If there is any continuity, replace the stator. If the resistance test is good, check vor voltage. Start the bike and run up to 2000 RPM. There should be at least 60V AC at across the pins. If either of these tests fail, replace the stator. If these tests are good and it isn't charging, replace the regulator. Good luck.
