Could be something a little more simple. Try bypassing the kickstand switch. Also could be a bad kill switch, start button, or starter relay.

Vulcan 900 not keeping battery charged

It sounds as if your regulator is fuctioning properly because it doesnt get to 15 volts and it stableizes and your rectifier sounds to be working properly also because you are getting power to your battery. You should have enough power to run a sound system. Im thinking this because i have seen it done before with out problems. But im thinking that maybe your stator may be going out but hasnt completely failed yet. I would run the bike and monitor the voltages and you should see a patern with the volts moving up and down with the rpms even with out a tach clip your volt meter to the stator itself there should be three wires coming out of it and you should be able to hook into them. Im sure you already know this nut make sure your volt meter is reading AC current because that is what the stator produces. See if you can make it fail it might take it a while but if it does then you know that its the stator. If the stator doesnt fail then shoot me an email and i will try to help you try to diagnose the regulator and rectifier. You may have them both as one unit I will watch this post and read alittle about your bike and try to find out if they are one unit or not.
Feel free to email me any time and good luck

Bike was running fine, good battery, turned off then turned ignition on had power then went off. Checked battery connections & fuses all ok, then got a jump and it idled ok but breaks up and lights go...

hondas have a weakness in the regulator rectifier unit on quite a lot of models,if the lights are not brightening when the bike is given the throttle its most likely failed,if u have access 2 a multimeter test the battery,the battery should have around 12 volts with the ignition off and with the bike started the voltage should go up 2 around 14 or 14.5 when the bike is given the throttle,if it doesnt your reg rec unit has failed,hope this is of help.

Wandering what amperage the charging system opperates at because i replaced my old battery and 30 days later im having issues with starting batt tested 12.60 volts im not sure what amperage its suppose to...

The charge system is regulated by voltage. amps is not such an issue unless extra lights etc are fitted

Battery voltage
12v - 12.6v with the engine stopped. This should rise to around 13.5v with a couple of thousand revs. If it doesnt rise there is a problem. ( an innocent jump start from the car battery can spike the regulators on some bikes)

Can a voltage regulator/rectifier if not working properly blow the main fuse. I have a 2002 v-star 1100. I was riding when all of a sudden the bike died on me. I lost all power no light, turn signals,...

Good link here:

Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch


When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

Battery wont hold a charge. put new battery same problem. when i recharge it battery is drained after roughly 5 starts.

stator needs to be replaced, works just like a alternator, if you ever banged it or dropped the bike then you have a busted stator. easy to fix but might run you about $70-$90 bucks for a new one.

Bike won't start, battery bulged

It is probably the voltage regulator which is allowing an electrical surge to blow out the low beam head light bulb.

No power on my Kymco Zing 125

your best try is to contact your dealer, and get them to order you the short red wire that runs from the + terminal on the battery, to the starter soleniod ( also has a thin red wire that runs to fuse holder) i had exactly the same problem and this solved it. i have however re done all the electrical connections on my bike using 7amp wire and bullet connectors, as i have had many faults with the electrics before.
My bike is a Kymco Cruiser 125 (almost exactly the same bike, i use kymco zing parts when replacing) i paid approx £16 GBP for the wire.

2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start

Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?

Electrical problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.
This page may give you additional insight.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
