When it dies does it have spark? need to know this to give any 100% accurate idea what is wrong, pretty sure u have a defective stator in the ignition system, that is the pickup on the end of the crankshaft under the little engine side cover under the fairing, the cooling down and restarts is almost a dead give away.

    the bike will be running and then start to sputter as if its low on gas, then it just dies out mid ride.

Yes it can be possible that reg/rec has gone faulty .But you will have to check it with meter before replacing it again.For a simple test, if your not super handy with a multi-meter, the three yellow wires from the stator should EACH push out some amount of AC current. The reg/rec will push DC current to the battery when rev'd. It shouldn't take much, maybe 3,000-3,500 RPMs to push about 13.0 volts of DC back to the battery. This can vary slightly, but it shouldn't ever be higher than 14 volts or can cause an overcharge. In some cases it has been noticed that one or two stator wires go bad, so it only pushes partial voltage to the stator, which causes the reg/rec to push just a small amount back to the battery, but not enough to keep it charged.A battery that is low or partially drained will cause them to over heat and die.If your reg/rec is dead, then you need to do a double check on each of the 3 yellow wires from the stator just to make sure they are pushing out AC voltage.The bike dies out because the battery loses its charge .The battery remains charge if reg/ rec is working properly.Get the battery fully charged and check the voltage if it shows proper 12.5 volts then its short in reg/rec again.Many a times low quality reg/rec dont last still new.So buy proper reg/rec.Stay away from the asian built ones on Ebay, they just don't last. They will work, but can't handle any load for any period of time. A battery that is low or partially drained will cause them to over heat and die.

While riding at night my bike died and could not be started without battery jump. Where do ifind the magneto and regulator to test? and wht output should i be expecting?


its an alternator not magneto, there should be 3 wires white or yellow, going to the reg\rectifier, multi meter across any pair(unplugged) should show 50-80 volts at 2000rpm non of these should short to earth, multi meter across battery should show up to 14v at 2-3000rpm.with everything plugged back in
if alternator checks out, and no voltage more than 12 at battery , replace regulator,,

all assuming the battery wasn't fried when it ran out of acid

my guess is new stator\alternator required

I just put a brand new battey in my 95 katana but it still.loses power and dies and wont start


Sounds like your regulator/rectifier has failed. This is a fairly common fault on GS and GSX models, particularly the smaller capacity (below 750cc) models. Did the oil level fall below minimum at any time, because this can cause the generator on some models to overheat, causing a power surge which can burn out the regulator. Get the generator checked and fit a new regulator/rectifier.

My 2008 gsxr 600 that i bought 2 days ago is running off of battery only not recharging while running. bike shuts down when battery is dead can push start but soon dies again also shows SD on the display...


Its nothing to do with the damper
The battery may not be accepting charge due to its age or condition (although as u can bump it soon after it sounds ok). Check this out with a charger & meter
There may be a bad or dirty connection somewhere between the alternator & regulator/rectifier or from there to the battery
It could also be a defective alternator winding or regulator/rectifier unit

Bike hasn't been running for months. change of owner. low batt. Boosted off truck. All four cable leads conected, ''truck to bike'',truck started, main fuse blows: 1-stator coil de-magnitized ...


First of all, when boost starting a bike from a auto make sure the auto is NOT running. The auto battery has more than enough power all by itself.

The most likely is 4) None of the above. The truck's charging system put more than 30 amps into the bike's electrical system and blew the fuse.

Get a new bike battery and fully charge it. Then go from there. If you really want to see if the bike will run before buying a new battery go ahead and hook up the cables to the truck battery and try it with the truck off.

A faulty alternator/regulator/rectifier should have no effect on the bike actually starting or turning over. Only the output of the charging system would be affected, possibly causing the bike to die when the cables are removed. My '78 Honda would not run at all without battery power, not sure if the Kawasaki is the same or not.

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

05 katana 600f no spark!


sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

Instrument Cluster needles stuck -- Electrical Problems


Needles stuck indicative of instrument cluster complete failure. Cause unknown. This is second instrument cluster that has failed on this bike, first one failed at about 3000 miles, twenty-two months ago. This "new" one died in mid May 2008. Received word from Ducati North America that they will accept the warranty claim for the toasted instrument cluster!!! Am still concerned about cause...this is second instrument cluster for this S2R800. Seems to be an issue prevalent on some of these late model Monsters. Will update more after instrument cluster gets in and replaced by Bloodworth Ducati in Nashville.

748 dies 15 minutes into ride


mine did exactly the same, its draining the battery and dukes wont run if the battery is drained. the battery will recover itself when not running therefore will start, but will soon use what little power is left in the battery then die. all u need is a regulator rectifier, its a little black box under the seat and takes 2mins 2 change, should work, if not, get a new altinator. start the bike up, and connect a voltage reader from eack battery terminal, should read 13, mine was reading 10.5, changed the reg rec and all is good. give it a try, hopes this helps
