It is either your regulator/rectifier, rotor/stator, or battery is bad and won't hold a charge. Get a multimeter and test the battery while the bike is running. You should get 12.5-13 volts at idle, and 13.5-14 at about 2500-3000 RPMs. If you aren't getting proper voltage, check wiring, but most likely a reg/rec problem.

    I don't have a manual in front of me, but you will most likely need a manual to know for sure how to check it. It will let you know how to test for continuity in your wiring, and what wires should have it with other wires.

Need to change the battery

When you receive a new battery unless you get it from a local dealer you will have to fill with acid before charging. The acid is usually supplied in a plastic bottle with the battery.

What should be the percentage of the battery when its fully charged on an aprilia 125 rs

If the system is 12 volt, which I think it is, a new battery should read 13+ volts fully charged. Note! You can have 12 volts, but low amps. You need to ideally charge the battery and put a load tester on it to know the truth about the condition of the battery. Chaz Moto DC

Battery keeps loosing charge- kymco cruiser 125, 2005

I had this exact same problem on a hipster 125, it was a faulty regulator module ( mounted under the seat) I also found a short circuit (somewhere) in the wiring loom between the regulator output and the chassis (probably what killed the regulator in the first place!) I cut and replaced the entire wire to save removing most of the loom and after testing reg to ensure it was dead i fitted a new one (about £60) bike charges and runs like a dream now even with fully lights approx 80% of the time. good luck
