Regulator problem!!....battery should charge a lot higher when throttle is rapped up to around 4000rpm...should go up to 13.5 to 14 volts then go down quickly to 13v.... no less. check for loose connections on both stator and regulator connections..clean it up could be dirty connections. a battery that is less than 12.6 volts means it needs charging,....and definately a batterty that reads only 12v volts is not good.

Check your regulator/rectifier and if it checks out operational. check voltage from your stator itself.

Hayabusa 09 getting no power, batt is good, fuse all good but now power

Hi, Kelvin and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

I have 0 power, no lights, nothing. i do not think

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Check the 30 Amp main fuse. It would be underneath the cover of the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Battery wont hold charge, intermitent, new baterie fitted , on suzuki hayabusa 2002

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the IGN switch off, the only electrical device directly connected to the battery is the regulator. If the battery would not hold charge/discharging, then this would be the most likely suspect. Two ways to confirm/check:
  • with the key off, spark test. Remove the + terminal. If there is significant spark then a electrical device is consuming power. To zero in on the regulator, disconnect the connector to the regulator and try the spark test again;
  • after a run and the engine has cooled sufficiently, the regulator would still be very warm.
In some instances, it could be the alarm/security if your version is equipped with such.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
