Sonds like your bike may have a charging problem (regulator or stator) and you most likely need a new battery.

GPZ500 1990 STARTING ISSUES


If it died while riding and would not start even with a boost chances are the charging system is not working or the battery is not accepting the charge.
Make sure battery is full of water(distilled and at the upper line in each cell)and charge the battery. Start the bike and use a multi meter and ckeck the voltage at the batery terminalls(red+) (black -) and if the charging system is working you should have between 12.5 and 15 volts. If it is at 12volts or under than you need to look at your charging system. If te system chack out ok @12-15 volts than I would invest in a new battery. I recomend a yuasa battery.
I own the same bike as you and never had an issue with the yuasa ( i won't run anything else)

Hope this helps

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

Bike wont start turn over till batery dies. where


It will have a fuel filter in the fuel line (should be easy to find) but does not have a fuel pump. Firstly i would check you have spark on all cylinders as this is the most likely thing to be going wrong. Once you are sure you have spark you can start trouble shooting fuel and air delivery problems.
To check for spark remove a sparkplug, insert it back into its HT lead. Place the threads of the sparkplug on the engine block and crank the engine. A strong blue spark should be visible.

Voltage problem when running bike


The voltage regulator should present 13.5 to 14.5 volts at the battery to charge it properly (engine at fast idle). I'm not sure if the V regulator is adjustable or not. If not, then it probably needs to be replaced. The alternator appears to be trying to do it's job, although it may have an open diode or winding if the alternator is 3-phase. An oscilloscope is the best tool to check for all three phases working properly. Good luck!

Start with jump and run but the batery no charge


You need a voltmeter to test with. Check your battery voltage while the bike is running. At idle you should get around 13-14v, at 4000 rpm you should get over 14. If you're getting less than 13 your charging system has a problem. Could be a bad voltage regulator.
