Did you use a Typanium Recitifier? There should be no problems unless it is a used one. All the new ones I havew used just "bolt on" .. there are 5 wires. Check to see if you don't have a grounded wire some where.. try it with the head light off.. I usually wire my bikes to start with no head light with a 3 way switch.. once running I can then turn the light on. Go through an check all your wires again, you might just have a bad connection somewhere.. here is an excellent site .. Jim http://www.raskcycle.com/techtip/webdoc16.html

Triumph daytona 650 05 model having problems charging the old and new battery told it could be the rectifier /regulator how can I check


I have a good idea, this is if you change the batt and it did not charge try with a volt meter re on the + being red lead B- being minus set to dc volt set to 20 volt check charging system this being 14+ volt is the reading to getand also rev engine to moderet rpmto see if it drop slow or fastif it drops to 12 and below may be reg, now find the three like wire to the reg test for A/C volt 65 and higher at 5000 RPM that will also indecate reg that is if there are no burnt wire which will be see when you go to check the voltage readings. Have fun

Alternator is behind the left hand engine cover and the rectifier/regulator is located beneath the rear bodywork on the right hand side.
Check the regulator first as it may have got wet.

Battery not charging 2003 triumph rs any ideas wear to start to solve problem have replaced battery


check for charging system voltage to battery by testing for 13-15volts dc across battery posts w/ multimeter while bike is running.if less, check for ac voltage to regulator/rectifier w/ multimeter while bike is running.if there is voltge to module, it is most likely defective.if there is no voltage to module,follow wire loom from voltage reg. to electrical connector plug.unplug it, start bike, test for ac voltage at other side of connector on the electrical pins on the loom coming from the engine. if no power there, the charging coil, or the wiring from the coil is defect.
