Hi, Anonymous first perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for a drop in amperage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
5. Hook up a voltmeter to the battery and start the engine, if meter falls below 9.0 volts while cranking you need to perform a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary.
6. With the engine running at 3600 RPM, the battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
7. Unplug the voltage regulator from the alternator at crankcase by the front of the primary cover.
8. To test voltage regulator go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
9. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace the stator.
10. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace the stator.
11. With the voltmeter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace the rotor.

SOURCE: Yamaha FZR 600 not charging correctly with the lights on

I HAD THE SAME ISSUE. CHECK YOUR VOLTAGE OFF O THE MAGNETO, IT SHOULD BE IN THE 25V RANGE. IF THAT CHECKS OUT OK CK THE VOLTAGE IMEDIATLY AFTER THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR, I BET IT IS BELOW 14V. THE FZR IS PRONE TO HAVING THE REGULATOR GO BAD (THE OLDER ONES HAVE NO COOLING FINS AND THEY BURN THEMSELVES UP). THE BEST ONE TO BUY IS THE NEWER VERSION FROM A 1999 FZR, IT HAS COOLING FINS WHICH GREATLY PROLONGS THE LIFE. YOU HAVE TO DO SOME SLIGHT WIRING MODS, BUT NOTHING ANYONE COULDN'T DO. SEARCH FOR FZR REGULATOR UPGRADE AND IT WILL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING! I HOPE THIS HELPS! GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: i cahnged the stator and rectifer and battery but

Ck at the battery with a voltmeter in series onthe Positive cable.A drain is use of the power. chking coils, rectifiers or the stator will not disclose or causeor effect.
Chk your charging rate. it should be between 13.6 and 14.2v Make sure your emergency shutdoqn is not left in off postion when not in use.. Off, meaning kill engine.
Good Luck. Remove the battery and wash it thoroughly with baking soda being sure not to get any inside.

SOURCE: my 2001 yamaha r6 keeps draining all the water out

is battery more than two years old? if yes replace battery. Battery voltage should be >12.4 volts minimum. if it wont hold this charge its bad. Check all the wiring on your bike to make sure that you dont have a shorted system that is draining down you battery.

Battery wont charge


If it won't charge on a battery charger it may need electrolytes or the battery is shot. If the bike won't maintain a charge it could be the voltage regulator or the generator stator.

You can find parts at the website below. I suggest you have a dealer check the charging system. Electrical parts can't be returned. I would hate to see you buy a $435 stator and then find out what was needed was a $75 rectifier/regulator assembly. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Fzr600 91 model power keeps dying when light on


Are you saying that the battery still discharges when you run with the lights on?
Assuming that the battery itself is good (has it been replaced?) then you may have a problem with the stator.

Start by measuring the voltage across the battery with the engine running and with the lights on - if it is less than 13.5V, then there is still a problem with the charging circuit.
If it does measure that (or better) then your battery is unable of sustaining a charge and should be replaced

You can find some helpful daignostics in this personally authored guide
http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-triple-forum/104504-charging-system-diagnostics-rectifier-regulator-upgrade.html - it applies to any motorcycle witha similar 3 phase generator system.

Good Luck!

this sounds like a stator problem. try checking the wiring inside and to the battery and if that is not it you most likely need to replace the stator.
