On many bikes a rectifier is similar to the attached photo. alternating current(AC) is produced by the flywheel and stator, which is put though a series of 6 diodes, to allow electrons to flow one way only.
Producing DC current, to charge the battery. This DC current must also be put through a regulator, so the battery doesnt overcharge.

How do i install a rectifier on my 1996 virago 750


To remove the old one, unbolt it and disconnect its connector.

To install the new one, plug the new rectifier into the cycle's harness connector and bolt the new item back into the position of the old one.

If you have an exact replacement for the old rectifier, it is almost impossible to mess up this swap.

I have a 2001 sportster 883. The battery keeps getting drained and wont charge while driving. i already put a new battery in it and was wondering if there was a common trend with this.


If you are not charging, I suggest you look at one of two things: (1) is the rectifier not working (changes AC from your alternator into "rectified" DC) or (2) the alternator is not producing power for some reason.

Alternators cannot make power unless you first put power into the device, BTW.

Before you purchase another battery and/or get stranded, please have your motorcycle looked at by a professional at your local HD Repair Shop.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Regulator rectifier mid 90s hondas


you will know if the regulator/rectifier goes, if 1, all your lights go much brighter and blow when you rev the bike, or 2, if your battery is not charging. a simple test is to check the voltage at the battery with engine idling, should be about 14volts. There is nothing you can do to prevent the rectifier from going.

Check the rectifier. Power should flow in only one direction.

Check the regulator. works?

Is the alternator putting out?

Is the battery fully charged?

Im leaning toward a shorted rectifier.

rectifier maybe going bad and overcharging. Use a test meter and test voltage at battery without engine running, with engine running, and reving engine up. It should not go above 14.4 volts. If it does, the rectifier is bad.
