Check the regulator/rectifier first, then stator.

Get access to battery then put meter across it...with bike not running it should read about 12.6v...now start bike and rev to about 3000rpm watch meter it should start to rise up in voltage, maybe to around 13.5v to 14v then quickly regulate back down to 13v...regulator is working o.k. The battery could just have a cell going bad in it and not holding the charge... if still not working, check stator for any open windings...measure any two wires leading into the stator they should all be .1 to 1 ohm .. and if battery is more than three years old... i would suspect that too. if your battery voltage is less than 12v its probably on its way out.

Charging system


What age is the bike?
older bike will not charge at idle.
you will know if the bike is charging by measuring theu voltage of the battery with the bike and all accessories switched off if it is a new battery it will be above 13V
A dead battery will be about 11V anything under this and it probably will not recover by charging and you will have to buy a new battery.

ok so lets say the battery is holding 12.5 volts if you start the bike and rev it up and it show higher than 12.5 volt your bike is charging note some bike dont charge under 3000rpm.

Hyosung avitar 650 wont stay running


Maybe this will help. This is a common problem that I have had with my GV250. Almost the same bike mechanically by Hyosung.

If the battery is low on charge and you are lucky enough for the bike to start. As per normal when first started it revs higher because the bike is cold, this turns the alternator fast to give you the electricity you need to keep the bikes computer working properly. Bike will warm up and revs drop down, alternater not turning as fast, not as much electricity being made. Bike will either stall or rev up and down irradically to try to produce its own electricity. This will occur when the battery charge is low and bike is at low revs, for example when you slow down for traffic or you stop.

If this is your problem. To resolve it when you are out on the road, keep the revs up, twisting your throttle gently when you are going slow or stopped. Give the bike a good long run on the open road to give the battery some charge from the alternator.

Make sure your battery is maintained. If you dont use your bike for a while it will lose charge just sitting there doing nothing. Give the battery a good deep cycle charge or take the bike for a good long open road ride.

I just bought a new battery for my 2005 Softail Deluxe; I road yesterday (10/20 miles) as I was finishinng the run, the bike shut off; could this mean the battery was not fully charged? Will a trickle...


Good idea put it on a trickle charge, however, the battery had enough charge init to start the bike initially, and the bike should have charged the battery after 10-20 miles, worth checking the charge rate to the battery from the rectifier,

The battery was low so i jumped it with a booster pack.will the battery recharge itself with the bike running?


If the charging system of your bike is ok, it should charge the battery, unless if the battery has its life span over whereby it wont hold charge any longer.
Best would be to get the battery checked and also the charging rate of your bike.
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.

1993 Kawasaki 750R - Charging issue - Weird!!!


i know this sounds silly ,but when you bought the battery had it been activated,new batterys are critical in their first charge and you cannot use a standare type automotve charger,if bought dry the battery needs to have the acid filled ,left to sit for at least 2 hours prior to charging,once it has sat for the 2 hrs with the acid in,the new battery will need to be charged with a "cteck"or similar type charger for at least 13 hrs before it can be put into normal service,what happened with yours i think is that sure you gave it a charge but it has only recieved a "surface charge"and will be usable for a very short time,it may recover for a brief period and go again untill the surface charge dissipates,(or in other words ..runs out of charge)best thing you can do with the battery is take it to a auto electrician and have the battery cycled and conditioned,this is not expensive to do and will give you piece of mind,after conditioning the battery shouldngive excellent service,i have the battery in my goldwing coditioned about every 12 months and i have the same battery that was in the bike when i bought the bike 8 years ago and still no electrical or battery problems(costs about $25 to get it done)once a year but that beats $280 for a new one...hope this helps

Bikes dead!! Battery wont charge, been charging all night Help!


You didn't mention if you charged the battery in- or out of the bike. If H-D has a modern alternator, it may have failed diodes that are draining the battery and stealing charge current if charged while connected. If the battery was made in China . . . oh, well.

My 2000 harley davidson motorcycle wont hold a charge


Get access to the battery terminal posts, star the bike and set the meter to "Volts DC". Touch the leads to the positive and negative posts and see what the meter reads. If the voltage is between 13-15 volts then the bike is charging, if thats the case the bike is charging but your battery is hooped. Start with that and if the bike isnt charging then write back again for trouble shooting instructions.
