    BATTERY IS BRAND NEW AND IS NOT THE ISSUE THE BIKE WILL START WITH BATTERY FULLY CHARGED HOWEVER IT DIES AFTER RELYING ON BATTERY POWER ALONE. WHAT ELSE COULD BE THE ISSUE

  • dub_music Sep 15, 2010

    as i stated the battery is not the problem bike will crank but will cut off as battery dies. i changed the stator and rectifier on bike but it wont hold a charge. what causes it to run on battery power only.

Make sure the battery passes a load test, on FI bikes it is "CRITICAL" to have a good battery. Do you have a multi meter? Also when charging the battery you should be using a 10 amp battery charger when it goes dead, not a trickle charger. To load test your battery hook the meter leads to the battery terminals, set the meter on 20 VDC scale,static test( key off) voltage needs to be like 12+ volts. With your key on it should stay right about 12, Next press the starter button and observe the cranking voltage if it goes below 10 volts your battery needs to be replaced. This is critical to these and for the most part all bikes.

    If you tested the circuit for proper charging and everything is testing as prescribed you surely then have ether a bad ground and or a broken or corroded wire in harness...only way to test is to follow each wire front to back.
    if you have not "tested" the circiuts and only replaced the parts ...you are not doing the right thing for yourself as far as finding the problem.... you may even have a defective after market replacement part on your hands...when this happens you can go nutz, so do the tests by the book.

2004 polaris ranger battery not staying charged when operating but when engine is off battery not affected cutting out and dying what could be the problem?


battery is being drained as it operates and not taking charge

check tightness and clean both terminals and cables

how old is the battery
may have a dead cell ..wont take charge

check the charging input to the battery with a volt meter
has to be above 12 volts
if lower or equal to 12 volts ...no good
the charging stator inside the engine needs testing or repair or replace

stator is another word for an alternator or a generator


why it plays up
best guess the ATV if a 12 volts system wont run on 11 volts

Will not hold a charge it has a new battery,stator and rectifier.


Take it back to the dealer! they will check for free. It is one of those. Sometimes you get a new part that is still bad, it happens. Take it to any reputible dealer and like i said, they will check it for free

Battery failure -- discharging while engine running


Hi, yes you have either a faulty stator or regulator/rectifier. Check if you have ac voltage out of the stator to the regulator if so the reg is bad, if not the stator is bad. Regards Phil.

For my honda cbr400, how does the stator affect the regulator rectifier? does it also affect the cdi in the process?


The stator is essentially an alternator (generator) that produces alternating current (ac). The rectifier converts the ac currect to direct current (dc). This dc currect is not very stable and is considered noisy. Alcohol, the voltage os proportional to the engine speed (rpms). Therefore a voltage regulator is added to keep the voltage at an acceptable level and not damage anything on the circuit (battery, radio, even headlights have a shorter life if too mush voltage is sent to them. If the stator is burned out (common on bikes from the early/mid 1980s, then there is no current produced and the battery ends up powering the system when you ride. The battery will eventually die and your bike will stop running. Hope this has what you need.

I have a 96 Honda CBR900RR and I have redone almost everything on it. I hooked the engine back up and the battery won't stay charged. It will stay charged until everything is running then it cuts off and...


the stator produces ac power which is rectified by the rectifier pack to dc power which is what the electrics uses
the voltage regulator controls the voltage to 14.5-14.8 volts dc
the voltage regulator by controlling the voltage also controls the maximum out put from the stator or the current being produced to charge the battery and run the lights and what ever else you have connected
hot stator and rectifier indicates uncontrolled out put so take it to an accredited bike electrician and have it fixed properly
have the battery load tested as uncontrolled output will boil a battery and ruin it

Take the bike out for a 40 mile ride, new battery, rides great, all of a sudden it runs terrible, it dies out and blows fuses.


possible, rectifier problem , or stator problem.

put a multimeter on the battery, should read around 12v engine not running, with engine running should show 13v or more.

Charging system difficulties


the stator is probably damaged, where the wires come out of the casing check for voltage when the motor is running (dis-connect them from the main wiring harness first) if no voltage stator is trashed, if there is voltage then check your regulator and rectifier (these you can remove from the bike and take to a bike shop and have tested)

STALLING AND LOSING POWER WHILE RIDING


If battery is running down. The engine may not be charging the battery. Check charging system. If running on battery, the bike will run fine for awhile then die as the battery can no longer provide spark to the engine. If charging system is less than 13.0 volts could be a ad stator or regulator. Make sure the battery posts are clean, a bad ground can cause problems too.

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
