Take it back to the dealer! they will check for free. It is one of those. Sometimes you get a new part that is still bad, it happens. Take it to any reputible dealer and like i said, they will check it for free

SOURCE: kawasaki zxr died after a run.new battery

How long did you charge the new battery before you ran the bike?

I'd have given it a minimum of 6 hours on a trickle-charger.

If you did this then you have got a problem with your charging system as Yeskimoe said, although i've not seen reg/recs give trouble on big Kawis.

Get the battery fully charged again then...

..put a voltmeter across your battery (red to positive, black to negative, 20V DC range)) and rev the bike to 4000 rpm, you should show around 14.5 volts, much less than this and the charging circuit is suspect.

The alternator belt might need tensioning.

SOURCE: Alternator not charging battery on getting 11.5

I had the same problem with my 900 that I just bought, the regulator was fried, so the local kaw shop replaced it with a new one off internet, then it promptly fried the new one, upon further investigation the rotor/armature was reading 1 ohm resistance, supposed toread 4/7 i think anyway, had to have alternater rebuilt , cost 370.00 , works fine now.

SOURCE: new stator cover bike wont start

useing a multimeter set to d.c check your charge at the battery whith out the motor running it should read above 12 volts determine the voltage stored in the battery with the meter stil conected hit the start button if the meter shows a dramatic drop in voltage its almost certain that the battery is shot howevwer if the voltage does not drop & it wont start bump start it conect the meter still set on dc increase the revs asyou do this the voltage should climb to 13.50 if it does & maintains 13.50 to 13.65 the chargeing system can be declared ok & you only need replace the battery however if it goes above 14 volts the voltage regulator is faulty & cooking the battery so you will need to replace both

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.

You need to check the charging current and also the discharging of the battery in the IDLE mode.
Please check this link for some tips.

Use a multimeter to check the charging current and also discharging rate when the engine is switched off.

The alternator and accessories must be checked.

I have a 660 and i put a new battery in it and it is.not charging do anyone have a diagram on how to.install a new charging system.


could be the stator or rectifier. rectifiers are easy to test since they're just a diode bridge to convert ac to dc. you'll need a service manual to check the stator. check the bluetraxx forum for one maybe.

Cranks but will not start


You need to check your charging system, if your stator is bad your battery will not charge. As far as it shutting down while riding that sound like you have an intermittent ground, so check all wire connections.

I have a 2000 suzuki intruder 1500 lc, battery just went dead and turns over very slow and then dies, I just bought a new battery today and the went dead after riding for a few minutes, once again it turns...


Sounds like you have a bad stator or rectifier. If you like to work on your own bike get a repair manual it will give you several test you can do. Charge the battery to full charge, take a volt meter and put in on the battery leads pos to plus and neg to ground. start the bike and watch the meter it should be putting out over 13 volts if it is not have your rectifier and stator checked by a pro. also check the compression valve cable it may be out of adjustment . I had one of those bike for 13 years a great bike

I left the key on for about20 minutes and the battery went dead bump started the bike and did about 20 minutes of freeway driving battery did not charge. I brought the bike home and hooked a charger to it...


You can damage electrical components if you do not run the correct voltage battery. If your battery is below 12 volts replace it. If you take off the seat you can easily test the stator with a volt meter. Find the stator plug with three yellow wires. You should have continuity between any combination of the yellow wires. You should have no continuity between any of the yellow wires and ground. That is the test of a good stator. If your bike is still losing charge after those checks , you are probably looking at a new regulator/rectifier.

Battery went dead & I replaced battery with a new battery, wont hold a charge. Is the stater bad?


If the battery is good, but the bike is not charging, it is either the stator or the regulator/rectifier. If you confirm that the stator is good (resistance and output check) then the regulator/rectifier is the problem.

Electrical problem


It is probably the battery, as it does charge up, means the regulator is working, but wont hold the charge overnight means battery.
If you ride it when the battery completely dies and shorts out, this may damage the regulator\rectifier, so make sure it has a good battery.

I installed a new quality battery,charged it. Dies in one day


It could be either your stator or your rectifier.You should check your AC output from your stator before replacing your rectifier. The rectifier is found bolted to the front side of the battery case.
Here is a link to a diagram to illustrate the location. The rectifier is #24.

Battery life doesnt last for more than 20 miles


If it's after you charge it fully, and then start and ride the bike, either the bike is pulling way too much power, or you just need a new battery for the bike.

Battery does not hold charge new battery fitted


Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.
